Keto pumpkin desserts start getting popular every year around mid-August. Since my hubby loves anything and everything, pumpkin, I thought I’d work on a recipe for Keto Pumpkin Mousse. I knew one of his favorite keto dessert recipes is Peanut Butter Fluff, so a recipe for keto pumpkin mousse was an obvious choice.

It is optional, but I love the crunch that nuts add to a low-carb dessert recipe. It changes the texture and gives it much more depth. Although optional, adding a few pecans and sugar-free Lilly’s chocolate chips are a tasty addition to keto pumpkin cheesecake mousse.

Note: Walnuts make a great addition as well. 

Ingredients for Keto Pumpkin Mouse:

  • Heavy Whipping Cream– Heavy whipping cream is high in fat and makes for a great base when making these pumpkin fluff keto bombs. I like to use heavy cream because compared to whipping cream, it is creamier and tends to hold its shape better.
  • Cream cheese – It gives pumpkin fluff a smooth cheesecake-like consistency! What more could you want? I use Philadelphia brand full fat cream cheese as it contains fewer ingredients and carbs than other brands.
  • Pumpkin Puree– Relatively low in carbs and can be enjoyed during keto.
  • Vanilla extract – Add some more flavor with a splash of vanilla!
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice– Usually composed of a blend of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and sometimes allspice, Pumpkin Pie Spice is incredibly flavorsome. 
  • Swerve Confectioners– A keto-friendly sweetener with zero carbs and zero calories. 
  • Unsweetened Chocolate– Look for Baker’s or dark chocolate with no sugar.
  • Optional: Pecans and Lily’s Chocolate Chips– Add some crunch to your pumpkin keto bomb with pecans and chocolate chips. With Lily’s chocolate chips you can stay in ketosis and still enjoy chocolate. These chocolate chips are low carb and sweetened with erythritol and stevia. Plus, they come in a variety of different flavors!

Steps to make Low Carb Pumpkin Mousse:

Step 1: Whip heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form in a medium mixing bowl, then set aside.

Tip: Do not use a warm bowl or utensils, or the heavy cream may not form stiff peaks

Step 2: In a separate bowl, add cream cheese, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, and Swerve confectioners, then mix on medium speed until smooth.

Tip: Make sure the cream cheese has been completely softened otherwise, it will be chunky, and your mousse won’t be fluffy and smooth.

IS PUMPKIN KETO-FRIENDLY?

Pumpkin is a winter squash that can be incorporated into various dishes and desserts! Unlike other winter squashes, Pumpkin is relatively low in carbs (4-12g of carbs per 100 g of pumpkin) and can be incorporated into a keto diet! That being said, make sure you are keeping track of your portions. Keto pumpkin mousse only uses ¼ cup of pumpkin puree spread across six servings, making it a little less than three net carbs per serving.

    1. Hi! No, those are listed as optional as I know not everyone will want to add those. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

    1. That is up to you. If you don’t want to use sweetener you could certainly try it without, although I am not sure how good it would taste.

    2. I don’t personally like Stevia because it has a weird aftertaste to me, but you could give it a try if that is what you have.

    3. I have used Stevia in this recipe and find it just fine. I only notice an aftertaste if I get a direct taste of it – like licking a spoon with it on it.

  1. How long does this keep for? Trying to work out how to scale the recipe down if only making for one person unless it keeps really well in the fridge.

  2. How would this freeze? I am also trying to cook for 1. I don’t like to mess with cooking during the week.

  3. Hi. I love your recipes but wish you shared the serving size. If you divided it into 10 equal servings, do you just eye ball them? I would love if you could start including the serving size. ❤️

    1. I’m not sure. I had someone else photograph this recipe. They use some kind of tiny yogurt cups or baby food cups.

  4. 5 stars
    Yumo that’s what my family and I say, I did put it into 2 pecan pie shells and froze them, it was like ice cream pie, so good. But if there are any left overs it does need to go back in the freezer. Julie
