What are the Ingredients for this Keto Pumpkin Mousse?
- Cream cheese – Use full-fat cream cheese to make this low carb mousse silky and delicious!
- Canned pumpkin – Make sure you’re not pumpkin pie filling because it’s filled with sugars and has plenty of carbs.
- Heavy cream – This makes the pumpkin fluffy, light, and airy.
- Pumpkin pie spice – I have a recipe on how to make homemade pumpkin pie spice, but you can use a combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves to replicate the taste.
- Erythritol – The sweetener must be powdered, so it dissolves easily into the cream cheese pumpkin mixture. Alternatively, you can use a few pumpkin spice liquid stevia in place of Erythritol.
- Vanilla extract – This brings out all the best flavors.
- Sugar-Free Whipped Cream to serve – Add a serious dollop of whipped cream just before serving this low carb pumpkin cheesecake mousse.
How to Make Keto Pumpkin Mousse?
This is a one-bowl recipe, so it’s super easy to make and turns out perfect every time if you follow two easy steps:
- Combine the cream cheese, low carb sweetener, and pumpkin puree until well incorporated.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and blend on high until for a few minutes or until it looks super fluffy. Divide into 4 to 6 servings and refrigerate for a few hours.
Pro Tip: Try not to overmix the mousse, or else the fats will separate into little grains.
Sprinkle with more pumpkin pie spice and enjoy every bite of it.
Is this Low Carb Pumpkin Mousse Dairy-free?
This pumpkin mousse is not dairy-free, but it’s possible to make a paleo version. Replace the cream cheese and whipping cream with 14 oz canned coconut milk. Thai Kitchen Organic unsweetened coconut milk is my favorite because it’s super creamy and low carb.
