Pumpkin Spice for the Keto Diet

Low Carb Pumpkin Spice Recipes

It’s pumpkin spice season! Pumpkin spice lattes and Oreos and Cheerios and all kinds of things I am not supposed to eat. Pumpkin spice for the keto diet is not impossible, though — there are lots of low-carb pumpkin recipes out there, and I have two cans of pureed pumpkin in the cupboard and a refill of that just arrived in the mail.

There are a few things to ensure when you’re doing pumpkin spice for the keto diet. First, use pureed pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling. Second, make sure your has no sugar in it, and remember that spices have a bit of carbs! With that done… enjoy. 🙂

Like my keto Thanksgiving recipe post, I’ve rounded up a few of the pumpkin spice keto recipes that look the most delicious to me. There are also lots of savoury options out there, from soups to casseroles, but fall isn’t fall without ginger and nutmeg and cinnamon and pumpkin, so I’m sticking with the sweets for now.

Low Carb Thanksgiving Recipes

When you think about traditional Thanksgiving recipes a lot of high carb food might come to mind: creamy potatoes, sweet pies and desserts, thick gravy, roasted root veggies… it all sounds delicious but it doesn’t fit in with a keto/low carb way of eating. My family isn’t big into the usual turkey and trimmings for Thanksgiving anyway, but it’s still nice to have that holiday vibe without compromising our lifestyle. That being said, here’s a Pinterest-sourced roundup of low carb Thanksgiving recipes!

Low Carb Thanksgiving Recipes

Low Carb Thanksgiving Recipes – Main Courses

You can’t really go wrong with a nice cut of meat! This is one part of your Thanksgiving meal that probably will not need to be adjusted. You can cook a ham (so long as it isn’t drenched in honey or maple syrup), a turkey or chicken, or prime rib and as long as it isn’t glazed, stuffed, or garnished with anything high carb you’ll be fine. We even cooked a large salmon filet for Thanksgiving one year!

Low Carb Thanksgiving Recipes – Side Dishes

Gravy: Check out this brown butter cream sauce from Low Carb High Fat Recipes, or for something fancier, the ultimate keto gravy from the Keto Diet app.

Veggies: These creamy garlic Parmesan mushrooms from The Recipe Critic look phenomenal. Add in cauliflower rice stuffing from The Healthy Maven, supreme green bean casserole from The Low Carb Maven, and cauliflower roasted garlic and ricotta mash from Little Broken, and you have a delicious spread.

Rolls: Keto bread? Yep. We’ve had Dream Bread bagels and love them; they make dinner rolls too!

Low Carb Thanksgiving Recipes – Desserts

Perhaps the holy grail of low carb Thanksgiving ideas — because what’s a holiday meal without dessert?

Pumpkin cheesecake mousse from Sugar Free Mama looks super easy to make (and you can use and in lots of other dessert recipes! This keto chocolate silk pie from Ruled.me is absolutely drool inducing — we use as our erythritol/stevia blend, and buy bulk from Yupik. And last but not least, keto pecan pie from Keto Connect (this is the we use!).


With these recipes and ingredients, you can put together a fantastic Thanksgiving spread without having to fall off the low carb wagon. This food would work equally well for a Christmas dinner, or any other holiday feast, too!
