  1. Place the dates in a small bowl and cover with hot water. Let them sit for 10 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, place the cream cheese, pumpkin puree, and vanilla extract in the bowl of a high-speed blender or food processor. 
  3. Drain the water from the dates, discarding the water. Place the dates in the blender or food processor.
  4. Process the ingredients on high, about 45 seconds, until the mixture is smooth and creamy. You might need to stop the blender or food processor and use a spatula to wipe down the sides.
  5. You can serve the dip immediately, or transfer it to a bowl and chill it in the refrigerator.
  6. Serve the dip with your choice of sliced fruit or vegetables. 


  1. You can substitute 1/3 cup maple syrup for the dates, if you prefer.
  2. The dip can be stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
