When the fall weather hits, it’s time for all things pumpkin! Whether you want sweet or savory, you will find the perfect pumpkin desserts for your keto diet right here!
Happy fall y’all! It’s one of my favorite times of year. The weather gets cooler, the air more clear and less humid. There is a slight nip in the air, and all the pumpkins are at the stores.
Fall decorating and baking are so much easier, in my opinion, than any other time of year. A pumpkin here, some leaves there, and a candle in the middle. Boom! You’re done.
With the cooler weather, having the oven on for hours at a time is also much nicer. It’s comforting to have the oven going with some wonderful smells wafting from there. Chicken bacon ranch casserole, keto bread, and more are all going now.
And all those keto pumpkin recipes I see and want to try. Oh my! I can just about taste the rich pumpkin flavor in ice cream, keto pumpkin cheesecake, and sugar free, gluten free muffins. It’s enough to make you want to grab a pumpkin or two right now!
Is pumpkin keto friendly?
Yes, it really is. In one cup of pumpkin, there are only 7 net carbs. However, there are a host of other essential nutrients to pumpkin. Vitamins A, and K, copper, and even 15% of your RDA of Vitamin C. It’s truly a food you want to enjoy on the easy keto diet.
How do I make pumpkin puree?
While canned pumpkin has the same nutrients as fresh pumpkin, making your own is so easy. Especially if you have some from the garden, or got a few extra on a great sale at the store. Here is a great tutorial on DIY pumpkin puree.
Don’t forget to save the seeds for roasted pumpkin seeds as well!When the fall weather hits, it's time for all things pumpkin!
