Keto pumpkin pie: no sugar, no flour!

keto pumpkin pie

Keto pumpkin pie is a twist on American classic: tasty and healthy at the same time!

Pumpkin is highly debated among keto-lovers. Debated, but still allowed – not for daily consumption, of course. You can cook a pumpkin puree as a side dish or a tasty tiramissu dessert. We’re used to Olivier salad as a festive New Year’s Eve must, same as Americans – to a pumpkin pie as an autumnal family dish. Nice crispy crust, tender and spicy filling – that’s what you need for a cold autumn supper. Try baking a keto pumpkin pie with us!

    Thank you for the recipe, it looks delicious. Is pumpkin puree just shredded fresh pumpkin? or does it need to be boiled first?

      From cooked pumpkin, but it’s better to bake it and then puree it with a blender, so it gets more flavorful
      And then you can put it in a bag and freeze it) and take it out as needed)

      О! No need to be afraid of the pumpkin! It’s a great vegetable, it makes great soups and even a side dish to meat!
      You have to be careful with pumpkin on keto if your goal is to lose weight
