5-minute Pumpkin Dip – Perfect after school snack!

My kids are always starving when they get home from school and were so excited when I had this waiting for them the other day.  It seems like a “treat”, but actually has no refined sugar and is sweetened only with a little maple syrup.  A fast and easy fall snack!
