Is Sugar Free Pumpkin Puree Keto-friendly?

Yes, it is. Since I’ve been on a keto diet for some time, I feel like it’s my duty to pave the path and help out others on their journey with keto.

There are several methods to create a sugar free pumpkin puree, but I found the best one and perfected it for all of us.

With the internet brimming full with keto pumpkin puree recipes, it’s essential to have a reliable source.

After testing a couple of recipes, I finally found the perfect way to create a keto pumpkin puree that you can incorporate in many keto and low carb recipes.


How to get the perfect consistency for your Keto Pumpkin Puree

Lots of keto pumpkin puree recipes were not providing the perfect consistency I required.

I had to rummage through quite a lot of them until I settled on this one. For perfect consistency, I went with my Magic Bullet as I didn’t want any lumps left on my puree.

It’s the perfect consistency for me to be able to add it to my pumpkin spice latte and other creamy tasty recipes.

When you’re done following this recipe, you will thank me for bringing this flawless, consistent keto pumpkin puree to your attention.



Ways to eat Keto Pumpkin Puree

There are several exciting ways to use your sugar free pumpkin puree.

My personal favorite is adding it to keto cheesecake, pancakes, muffins, pumpkin spice lattes, or mug cakes.

I’ve recently started adding it to my creamy cauliflower rice, which turned out great.

There is simply no end to the creative ways we can utilize this scrumptious keto pumpkin puree!


Benefits of Pumpkin (Pumpkin offers several key health benefits)

Fall presents us with a superb superfood in the form of pumpkins.

According to Healthline.com, pumpkins are nutritious and rich in Vitamin-A while also packing lots of antioxidants.

They boost your immunity and will aid you in your quest to lose some pounds.

It’s also high in Vitamin-C, fiber, and Potassium, which definitely helps lower the risk of heart diseases.


The good news is that pumpkins can be incorporated into your diet via numerous creative methods.

Personally, for me, the nostalgia value inherent within pumpkins truly complete the Halloween and Thanksgiving season for me.


Homemade Puree vs. Canned Products

If pumpkins are in season, there is absolutely no reason to go for canned products.

Not only does fresh pumpkin puree taste better, but it also happens to be healthier and free of any additives or preservatives.

You can also tinker with the recipe and add a unique flavor to the mix.

For instance, you can experiment with nutmeg, ginger, cloves or cinnamon, etc.

I found that having a neutral-tasting puree was best for my purposes since I wanted to incorporate it into both sweet and salty recipes.

But if you are using it for a specific recipe go ahead and add your spices directly to the puree. 


While the store life of canned products is admittedly longer, your homemade keto pumpkin puree can last quite a while if stored in the refrigerator ( for a week ) or frozen for up to 3 months.

I’m stocking up for the rest of the season by freezing zip lock bags full of delicious keto pumpkin puree. I can’t get enough of it!
