How To Make Keto Pumpkin Mousse

You will love this delicious keto sweet treat once you see how easy it is to prepare. Here is everything you have to do to enjoy one of the best keto pumpkin mousses that you will ever try:

Making The Creamy Base

In a generously sized mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese (8 oz) at room temperature, pumpkin puree (7 oz), powdered sweetener (2 tbsp), and vanilla extract (1 tsp). Blend these ingredients until they form a creamy and uniform mixture.

Add the pumpkin pie spice (1 tsp) into the mixture and incorporate it thoroughly for a delightful infusion of autumn flavors.

Pour in the heavy cream (3/4 cup) to further enrich the texture and creaminess of the mousse. Continue mixing until the components are harmoniously combined.

Chilling for Perfection

Divide the resulting keto pumpkin cheesecake mousse evenly among 4 small serving glasses. This resting time melds the flavors beautifully.

While the mousse is chilling, prepare your preferred batch of sugar-free whipped cream.

Assemblage with Elegance

Once the pumpkin mousse has been adequately chilled, take it out and portion it into serving glasses.

Elevate the presentation by adding a finishing touch of pumpkin spice if desired.

Tips For Making The Best Keto Pumpkin Mousse

  • Make sure you use room-temperature ingredients to ensure a creamier and smoother texture.
  • Feel free to add some cinnamon or nutmeg while mixing the cream cheese for a more intense fall-season flavor.
  • For great results, chill this keto pumpkin mousse before serving it.
  • Make sure you’re using pumpkin puree, and avoid the pumpkin pie filling. The latter one is loaded with sugar and other spices that are not keto friendly.

Storing Ideas

  • Fridge – You can store this keto pumpkin mousse covered with plastic foil in the fridge for up to five days.

How To Serve Pumpkin Mousse 

There are many creative ways to serve this low carb pumpkin mousse. It’s best served cold straight from the refrigerator. Use a piping bag to transfer into small serving glasses.

  • Pumpkin Parfaits: You can use this mousse to create a delicious layered dessert. Alternate layers of cookies, granola, or brownie bits, then finish with whipped cream.
  • Keto Chocolate Pumpkin Mousse – Mix in a tablespoon of chocolate powder and sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top before serving.
  • delicious filling for keto pancakes or keto crepes.

Pumpkin Pie Filling vs. Pumpkin Puree

Although pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie filling may seem the same, you need to be careful not to use pumpkin filling because it will also change the entire result and the macros.

Can I Freeze This Keto Pumpkin Mousse?

Sure, if you want to freeze this keto mousse, transfer it to individual freezer-safe glasses and wrap each glass with plastic foil; then, you can store them in the freezer for up to one month. However, I prefer to make this pumpkin mousse a day before serving it and then store it in the fridge since it’s quite easy to prepare.
