Can You Eat Pumpkin on Keto?
Short answer: yes!
Pumpkins are considered a starchy vegetable (well, technically they are a fruit). However, compared to other starchy vegetable such as potatoes or corn, pumpkins are relatively low in net carbs.
A half cup of canned pumpkin contains about 10g carbs and 4g fiber, so that would be 6g net carbs. When that’s incorporated into a recipe, those carbs are spread out among multiple servings, reducing the overall impact to your diet.
The two main watch-outs with canned pumpkin are portion size and added sugars. Always read the labels to be sure you’re getting 100% real pumpkin with no added sugars.
And then of course you wouldn’t want to eat the whole can in one sitting. However, when incorporated into a delicious fall treat like these keto truffles, pumpkin is not only delicious, it is nutritious too!
What are the Nutritional Benefits of Pumpkin?
We already mentioned that it is high in fiber, but pumpkin provides many additional nutrients that make it a great mix-in for your keto desserts!
Pumpkin is an excellent source of vitamin K, as well as a good source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, potassium, and more! As long as your enjoying in moderation, pumpkin is an excellent way to spice up your day and get a nutritional boost!

How to Make Keto Pumpkin Fat Balls
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or non-stick silicone baking mats and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, cream together cream cheese, butter and sweetener. If you have one for your mixer, the whisk attachment will help make it light and fluffy.
Add the canned pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, syrup, and vanilla, and mix until smooth.
If needed, stop the mixer to scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula, and blend again until completely smooth.
Place the bowl of pumpkin mixture in the fridge to chill for an hour.
After it’s chilled, roll pumpkin cheesecake batter into balls, about 1 Tablespoon each, and place on your prepared cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes.
To Make the Coating:
Place the cocoa butter in a microwave-safe bowl, and melt at 10-second intervals, until it is smooth when stirred. Be sure to handle with care, as the bowl may become hot.
Remove the truffle balls from the freezer, and dip the balls into the cocoa butter, and place back onto the parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
When all balls have been dipped, sprinkle a little cinnamon on the truffles, and add the orange-colored candy pearls on top for extra sparkle. (The edible pearls are sugar-based, but they are tiny so the impact is minimal. However, you can omit them if you like because they are decorative only).
Place the cookie sheet into the refrigerator until the coating is completely set (may take up to 4 hours).
