Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, it always seems to sneak up on me. Early meal planning is key here, so I’ve started collecting Thanksgiving recipes. Some are high carb dishes that need some work and others, like this one are already low-carb and ready to go.

My favorite place to hangout online is on food blogs, any free time I have is usually dedicated to reading through whatever is in my Google Reader and I subscribe to a ton of food blogs. I cam across Kitchen Simplicity, a Canadian food blog that has come up with some really great no bake Thanksgiving recipes. Including this fantastic Creamy Pumpkin Pie Dip and Mini “Pumpkin” Cheese Balls.

Here ya go, re-posted for your tasting enjoyment!

  • This is such a great and festive appetizer! I have never had pumpkin dip before but I am definitely going to make it this year. I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is only a matter of weeks away and I am rounding up so new Thanksgiving Recipes and that was how I can across this one. I wasn’t really thinking about having appetizers but this got me thinking. I work for Better Recipes so I am always reviewing recipes and this sounds like a great one!

    • Hi Tami, you can use any of your favorite veggies, fill celery or sweet peppers with it, top cucumber or jicama slices, carrot sticks would work to, or you could use flax crackers.
