Is Pumpkin Keto?
You bet it! Pumpkin is easily incorporated into any low-carb diet. But like with any fruit or vegetable, portion control is important. The good news is most recipes only call for about 1/2 cup of pumpkin for the entire recipe.
Pumpkin is also very nutritious. On top of being high in vitamins and minerals it’s considerably low in calories. It’s a great source of beta-carotene. To read all about the health benefits of pumpkin, check out this article.
Can You Freeze Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse?
You sure can! The only word of caution about freezing mousse is not to rush thawing it out. Allow it to slowly thaw in the fridge. If you just can’t wait for it to thaw, you can always enjoy this as a low carb frozen treat!
Substitutions for Pumpkin Keto Mousse
The pecans are optional but highly recommended. You could substitute with walnuts if you’d like, but the nuts add such a great contrast in texture!
For a little extra decadence, you can make Keto candied pecans and crumble on top!
If you don’t have Mascarpone cheese, you can substitute with more cream cheese. It will still taste amazing and will have the exact same texture and creaminess. Just be sure to adjust your macros, since cream cheese has slightly more carbs.
Needing serving suggestions? That’s another wonderful thing about serving mousse as a Keto dessert. You can serve it in individual dessert cups or pretty martini glasses. Or if you’re needing it for a covered dish gathering, serve it family style in a larger bowl. Regardless of how you serve it, it will please a crowd!
