The leaves are starting to turn, and the nights are going from chilly to down-right cold.  Fall might be my favorite season of the year, and while it’s my favorite, it may also be the most dangerous time of the year for those of us trying to count calories.  Cold weather lends its self to us staying inside, eating filling meals, and lounging around.  On top of that, you have a trifecta of high carb Holidays bombarding you back to back: Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  Each one has it’s traps, but with a little planning and due-diligence, we can get through them without breaking our diets.  My #1 secret weapon for fighting off the dreaded fall Holiday sweet tooth is my favorite low-carb pumpkin mousse recipe.

One of the toughest things to deal with at Thanksgiving and Christmas is the trays of sweets: puddings, cookies, fudges, the list goes on.  For someone on a low-carb diet, or someone looking for keto-friendly Thanksgiving or keto-friendy Christmas desserts, having something to cure your sweet-tooth when the desserts start being passed around will be critical to surviving your diet over the holiday season.

This Keto Holiday Pumpkin Mousse is the answer to your sweet-tooth prayers, and also gives you a chance to savor the flavors of a fall Holiday classic: Pumpkin.  With hints of chocolate, this low-carb mousse can almost feel too decadent, but trust us — we ran the numbers, have tested many batches, and works out!

Bulking Tips

Your bulking, why are you eating keto foods?

Cutting Tips

Want to cut extra calories?  If you are okay with sacrificing flavor, you can switch to a low fat cream cheese, or you could also swap your heavy cream for half and half.  Both will sacrifice flavor, but you can shave off several grams of fat.  In my opinion though, if you are making this for a holiday dish, it’s already keto-friendly, so just enjoy it the way it was intended!

Steps

1
Done

Whip the cream, add spices

Whip the heavy cream in a bowl and add all the pumpkin spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla (optional) and cloves

2
Done

Prepare Pumpkin

In another bowl mix the pumpkin puree with the cream cheese until you get a homogenous mixture.

3
Done

Combine Pumpkin and Cream

Add the pumpkin mixture to the cream bowl gently and keep mixing.

4
Done

Add sweetener

Now you can add some sweetener of your choice. If you are using stevia with 5 - 8 drops would be enough, and if you are using erythritol you can use 1/2 tbsp. The pumpkin has a natural sweet flavor much better than any sweetener.

5
Done

Prep chocolate

Take the chocolate pieces and break them in little chips or chunks if you prefer. This will act as a surprise while you are eating the creamy mousse.

6
Done

Add Chocolate

Add this chocolate chips to the mixture and stir it until you get the desired consistency.

7
Done

Serve!

Finally, serve the mixture in to little cups and keep it on the fridge for 3 hours. For decoration, you can top the mousse with cinnamon powder and grate a bit of chocolate on top.
