Low Carb Pumpkin Pie for One Recipe
It’s difficult to stay on the keto diet around the holidays where there are temptations and your favorite holiday treats everywhere in sight. But don’t cave in during Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner just because the dessert table is flooded with your favorite pies and goodies. Be smart. Plan ahead. And make yourself this keto pumpkin pie for one!
Single serve low carb pumpkin pie is an easy keto dessert recipe you can make in 30 minutes. As you are getting ready to go over to your mom’s for turkey dinner and you know there won’t be any delicious sugar-free pies for you to taste, then quickly make your own keto holiday dessert to bring!
Press in Keto Pie Crust
One of my favorite keto pie crust recipes is used in this mini pumpkin pie recipe. It is a shortbread based crust recipe that you press into the pie pan. It’s lightly sweetened and tastes delicious on its own - reminds me of a cookie.
Since we are only making a single serve of pie crust, it’s easy to cut the cold butter into the crust ingredients with a fork. There is no need to break out the pastry blender here; although, you could use a mini food processor if you desire and don’t mind extra dishes.
Is Pumpkin Allowed on the Keto Diet?
Although pumpkin is part of the squash family and is a little higher in carbs, you can still enjoy this flavorful vegetable in small quantity. The 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree included in this recipe contributes to 3 g net carbs. To me, that is worth the sacrifice in order to enjoy my favorite Thanksgiving dessert while still staying keto.
Make It Ahead
What’s even better than being able to only make one serve of your favorite holiday dessert? Being able to make it a day or two ahead of time! This will help alleviate some holiday stress.
After you bake this portion controlled keto pie, let it cool completely. Then wrap in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for a 1-2 days until ready to devour!
