Instead of just using pumpkins to carve a jack o'lantern this year, why not use the entire thing in a healthy recipe instead? There are plenty to choose from with the latest low-carb and keto pumpkin recipes roundup.
Is pumpkin keto?
Pumpkins are only 4% carbohydrates, which make them a great addition to your low-carb fall menu rotation. It's why you see so many low-carb and keto pumpkin recipes coming out at this time of year.
It is low carb, low calorie, low fiber, low protein, and contains vitamin A, vitamin C, and iron.
Pumpkin nutrition per 100g (raw): 6.5 g total carbs, 0.5 g fiber, 6 g net carbs, 1 g protein, 0.1 g fat, 26 calories.
How to cook pumpkin
For most of the low-carb keto recipes below, you will need cooked pumpkin puree. You can use either store-bought canned pumpkin puree (or pumpkin pie filling) or you can puree cooked pumpkin yourself.
No matter which one you decide to use, the cooked pumpkin puree must be low moisture. If the pumpkin has too much water, your keto pumpkin pie filling, keto pumpkin fudge, or low-carb pumpkin muffins will be wet, soggy, and not set properly.
- Peel the fresh pumpkin and cut into chunks.
- Boil, steam or roast the pumpkin until it is soft but not overcooked and mushy.
- Allow as much of the steam and water to evaproate.
- Puree using a stick blender or place into a food processor and puree until completly smooth and lump free.
- Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Freeze for up to 3 months.
🎃 Homemade pumpkin pie spice
Before you begin to make all these delicious fall recipes, I want to teach you exactly how to make your own homemade pumpkin spice and SAVE money.
This homemade spice can be used in a variety of low-carb and keto sugar-free recipes. Make a big batch and keep it in a spice jar.
A small teaspoon can even be added to your daily coffee to give it a warm winter spicy flavour.
