Low Carb Pumpkin Mousse

Low Carb Pumpkin Mousse

I used to enjoy spending a whole day in the kitchen creating beautiful desserts, but after having kids, I’m all about “quick and easy!” I still love to be in the kitchen, but the boys often want me to play with them; also if they want to help me make something such as a Pumpkin Mousse, I want it to be as easy as possible because I know it is going to take twice as long to make as well as twice as long to clean up their mess.

So if you really want to impress your dinner guests but you are not much of a baker, you must try this dessert. It is everything decadent that Pumpkin Pie has to offer without all of the trouble of making a pie crust. Plus, it is egg free for those of you who sadly can’t have eggs!

TESTIMONY OF THE DAY

Celiac Testimony: “Nobody would believe that I had been slowly gaining weight, but I felt and saw it on a daily basis. I have Celiac disease, and before finding you (Maria), I was given a lot of misinformation about the diet I needed to be eating, I was consuming a LOT of whole grains and sugar (if it’s gluten free, it’s good for you right?). I was miserable, moody, I had severe depression, the inflammation in my joints at 24 yrs old was unreal; I would get off work and be hunched over and limping from the pain. I was having to go up a size in clothes, I took a nap every single day because no matter how much I slept, I was exhausted. I didn’t have the motivation to change anything or do anything. I had done many workout programs and your standard government diet recommendations (lots of whole grains, veggies, fruit, and protein, and a small amount of fat). I just got even more moody, more bloated, and felt more deprived than ever! I never had any energy, and was just horribly grumpy all the time.

When I began my journey, I didn’t even make major changes to my diet for the first month, I mainly worked on taking out sugar. Through all of this, I learned I have a severe addiction to sugar; if I ate one piece of candy or dessert, I wouldn’t even have control over how much I ate. I would eat until there was no more. I hated that feeling, and didn’t realize how much of a hold it had on me until I cut it out of my diet! No wonder I was miserable! The second month I slowly worked on taking out most of the grains (still having bad stuff here or there). Even only starting with that, my energy levels skyrocketed, I slowly started losing inches of fat, and I could see several health issues I’d been struggling with start to diminish. Two months later I completely changed my diet to a full low carb/high fat diet.
Now, 9 months later, I don’t ever take naps anymore, I accomplish SO much everyday, my focus is better, my mood is stabilized, I have gained muscle very easily, I’m down 10lbs of FAT, 20+ inches all over, those clothes I was having to go up in size? They’re now too big! I’m down from a size 5 in jeans to a 1.

Even something as simple as my fingernails GROWING for the first time in my life made me absolutely thrilled! I have a better outlook on life now, just because I changed my diet. I know I’m here for a reason, and I want to help others experience what I have felt.

I have a lot of goals now that I am working hard to accomplish. I have mLow Carb Pumpkin Moussey life back and it’s so much better than I ever thought it could be!” – Jessica

    I loved pumpkin pie growing up. And this will be a great way to get my fix!
    Thanks Maria! 🎃

    Maria, LOVE the site and so happy I came across it. I have a question regarding a VERY old post/recipe. Bread. I had the recipe for the Keto bread/rolls but I recently looked for it and can only find it with measurements..not weight. I have found through much trial but mostly error, that the only way this recipe works for me is if I weigh the ingredients. Otherwise I get the high puffy hole and gummy bottom. Can you please repost this recipe with the appropriate weights? Thanks for all your great recipes and posts

    Maria,

    First off I absolutely love love love your book. It’s become a must have for my weekly grocery shopping needs and factored into all the meals I make for my family. One thing I am wondering though, most females I know do not have as great of a digestion system as men and don’t have bowel movements as often. With the ketogenic lifestyle we eat lots of cheese as a snack because it’s an easy go to and no prep for a Mom of 5 kids. I think cheese doesn’t allow me to be as regular as I could be. What do u suggest to help that is keto friendly?

    Do you know the Calories, Carb%, Protein%. and Fat% ?

  • Mary says:

    I’m going to try this with coconut milk for non-dairy option.

  • I probably wont try this one out just because the carbs are slightly higher; but it looks like a lovely recipe.

    • Darlene says:

      A nice occasional treat, tho! Especially for Thanksgiving!! I’ll try it using part coconut cream

  • Ann Dubeau says:

    Maria, I just made your Bone Broth recipe for the first time as we are very new to the Keto diet. It smells fabulous! I’m wondering about the yield – your cookbook says the yield is 4 quarts – I have 1 1/2 quarts. Is my broth too concentrated? Should I add water? My crockpot is a 5 quart – I followed the recipe exactly (I measured the water that went in – 2 quarts). Am I missing something? Thank you, Ann

  • Cindy says:

    Where are all of the recipes that use to be on your site?

  • Lorraine says:

    I cant get swerve in UK as far as i know. Can i use erithritol granules, this is the only sweetener i have as i very rarely use it.

  • Carol Martin says:

    Maria,
    How long will this recipe keep? If I make it on Sunday and serve Monday evening will it still present well?

    Hi, I’m so happy to have found your website. I started following a Keto lifestyle 4 months ago. I’ve been slender most of my life, ate organic, healthy food options, avoided processed foods and indulged in sweet treats only occassionally. My blood sugar was going up every year. When it reached 120 I started intermittent fasting. Without changing anything else over the course of a year I lost eight pounds and my blood sugar went down to 96. Still suffering drops in blood sugar after eating, with some meals laying me out on the sofa, I decided it was time to take drastic action. I knew about Keto for cancer and started reading everything I could. One month on Keto my blood sugar dropped to 86. Energy levels steady all day. I stick to 20 carbs or less a day as I seem so insulin resistant. I’m hoping over time I can try to increase and see how I feel. Sorry I’m off topic.

    Now that I’m preparing for thanksgiving, I really wanted to prepare dishes for the family that are familiar to what the family has always wanted in the past. Having one daughter with a life threatening milk allergy (milk proteins) I’ve cooked without milk products for over twenty years. Three years ago my hubby was diagnosed with celiac and I started adjusting to grain free cooking. With my going Keto I am trying to incorporate changes in how I cook again. Your pumpkins mousse sounded wonderful. I used your recipe and changed it up a bit. I wanted pumpkin mousse bars. I used your recipe for the Lemon Bar crust, using coconut oil. Cooked it per the recipe, in a cheese cake pan with parchment lining the bottom. Set it on a cooked sheet to catch any oil dripping out as it cooked. I mixed the mousse using a cup of coconut cream from a refrigerated can of coconut milk. Used two eggs instead of three. 1/2 cup powdered swerve and tsp of stevia with the pumpkin pie spices. I just took it out of the oven and it looks wonderful. I will come back and let you know how it tastes after our feast. Hoping the crust stays crisp in the frig. I’m in the mist of drying out your sub bread to use for stuffing. Thank you for making your recipes available to those of us looking for inspiration. I just bought one of your cook books on Amizon and can’t wait to read it.

        Hi Maria,
        Thought I would let you know how the pumpkin dessert turned out. Everyone loved it! I used coconut cream whipping cream as the topping. I made a mistake when I mentioned eggs in my last post. Yours didn’t have eggs. I added the eggs and baked like a pumpkin pie. The crust stayed crisp for the day and a half it was in the refrigerator. The sugar eaters couldn’t tell this was sugar free. I really liked it too but I think my sweet tooth is going away, I would have preferred it to be a bit less sweet. When I make this for Christmas dinner I will reduce the sweetener. I’m going to try your cookie crust out as regular cookies, it reminded me so much of sugar cookies. The sub bread is amaizing, the best bread recipe I’ve found. I had made two batches and yesterday I made a double batch. It raises nicely and has great flavor and I’m not getting mushy centers. The sub bread made a great tasting dressing. Despite adding 3 eggs to the casserole before baking, nothing stuck together like a regular dressing. Can you give me some suggestions in making the dressing bind together? I want to make this again for Christmas as the flavors were wonderful, it just didn’t stick together like regular stuffing. I just got your book and read it from cover to cover. Can’t wait to try the recipes. Thanks so much for your wonderful website.

    We had this instead of pumpkin pie for our Thanksgiving. I don’t think anyone is a big pumpkin pie person but everyone liked it. The funniest thing was that my dad kept eating the whipped cream by itself. He told us all that he had some left over mousse in his bowl – so it was ok.
