Is canned pumpkin keto?
Absolutely! Pumpkin is a winter squash that is relatively low-carb. The trick is all in making sure the things you add to it are low in carbs as well. You’re still going to want to use sugar substitutes like Swerve or Monk fruit.
When buying canned pumpkin, make sure you are not purchasing cans that have additives. A 1/2 cup serving of canned pumpkin has 7 net carbs while raw pumpkin has 6.9 net carbs in a full cup.
Should I use raw pumpkin or canned pumpkin for keto snacks?
In these recipes, I’ve used canned pumpkin, but you can use pumpkin you prepare yourself! Depending on the time of year, it might be difficult to find fresh pumpkins, so canned is always going to be more convenient.
Even if you buy a fresh pumpkin, you still have to roast it and blend it before using it in these recipes. Making your own pumpkin puree isn’t super convenient, but it does have its benefits! If you choose to roast your pumpkin, here are some roasting pans I’ve enjoyed using in the past.
Obviously one huge positive is that you know, without a doubt, what’s in your food. In addition, you can create a puree with different types of winter squash to provide more complex flavors or even add seasonings you already know you may want.
How do I prepare pumpkin puree?
There are some very detailed guides for making your own pumpkin puree, but I’ll just give you a quick rundown. First, you’ll need a 3.5+ pound pumpkin for 2 cups of puree.
Cut the pumpkin into quarters, then scoop out the insides, just like you do for making a jack-o-lantern. Once the innards are scooped out and discarded (or save the seeds!), place the pumpkin quarters on a baking sheet. Roast them (skin side up) at 300 degrees F for 1.5 hours or until fork tender.
Scoop out the tender “meat” of the pumpkin and leave the rind. Place the pumpkin meat into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. At this point, you’re free to add seasonings if you’d like! Save the seeds for roasting, too!
