Now that it’s autumn, it’s time for me to move away from one of my summer favorites – avocado toast – and move on to one of my fall favorites – pumpkin spice toast! I love making this for breakfast, and it’s so easy. This pumpkin spice spread is delicious on cinnamon or sourdough toast or as a schmear on a warm bagel, or even served as a dip with apple slices. YUM! There’s so many ways you can use this, so I typically keep a jar of it in my fridge during the autumn and winter.
Pumpkin Spice Spread is so easy to make
This recipe is so easy! It only has 4 ingredients, so it’s quick to whip up and is so nice and yummy. And it only has 29 calories per serving! WIN!!!
I’m all about serving my family things that taste great, don’t take a ton of time to make and are good for them, and it’s even better when I know that what I’m serving also serves the community.
I’m pleased to have partnered with Real California Milk to share my recipe. But we’re also sharing something really special. Real California Milk has a remarkable campaign happening right now that you can participate in to help victims of Hurricanes Irma and Harvey. It’s called the “Spot the Seal” campaign, and I really hope you’ll take a moment to participate as you can help them raise up to $20,000 for hurricane relief!

You know I’m all about supporting good causes and participating in social good campaigns, and this one is super easy for you to participate. Even better, it’s a great way to send some financial support to the hurricane victims without spending any money. Here’s what to do:
- Take a picture of the Real California Milk seal when you’re at the grocery. You may even have something in your refrigerator now that has the seal. That will work too!
- Then share that photo on social media using the hashtag #SealsForGood.
And then, Real California Milk will make a $5.00 donation to support victims of the hurricanes.
UPDATE: Real California Milk is now also supporting the victims of the wildfires in California with the Great American Milk Drive too.
The above image shows what the seal looks like. I’ve seen it in different color combinations on various products in my kitchen. It can be all blue like this one or it can be yellow and black or even orange-yellow and black.
The thing I love about cooking with Real California Milk products is that I know that it’s a quality product that also supports the local economy. I’ve lived in California half of my life, so knowing that local farmers are supported when I’m whipping up this great pumpkin spice spread makes me feel good. I hope you’ll take a moment to learn more about Real California Milk.
Now let’s get on to the recipe for pumpkin spice spread!
My husband is a big pumpkin pie lover. Each year, I make him a homemade pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, but I truly think he would eat it as often as I can bake it. But we’re also trying to watch our weight, so eating pie all the time isn’t something we need to do regularly. But we can fit in a spoonful of pumpkin spice spread with our breakfast or snack to get some of that yummy autumn flavor without busting our calorie allotment for the day.
It’s all about balance, right? We can have a little treat now so we can have a bigger treat later.

I would suggest serving pumpkin spice spread on sourdough toast, cinnamon toast, or on a plain or cinnamon bagel. It’s also great on raisin toast if that floats your boat, but we’re purists at our house – we like to focus on pumpkin spice being the star. The pumpkin spice spread also works great as a dip with apple slices. And if you like to pair something salty with something sweet, it’s great with pita chips, too. It’s a perfect addition to your hors d’oeuvres table when you’re entertaining.
