Low-Carb Pumpkin Cheesecake
Because most people tend to overindulge during the holidays, giving your loved ones the ability to enjoy a keto treat that’s guilt-free will be a treat they will embrace.
During pumpkin season, there are so many tempting high-carb options, and if you’re not careful you’ll find yourself falling for the temptation.
It’s easy to rationalize why it’s ok to indulge in traditional fare.
But staying the course throughout the holidays is a must if you’re hoping for long-term results.
Be prepared and stay on track during the holidays; otherwise, you could completely derail your progress.

Tips To Making a Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake
When it comes to making this pie crust it’s also super easy and there is no need to use a food processor.
As far as ingredients for the crust go, you have a couple of options. You can use a combination of pecan meal and almond flour the way the recipe is written, or use all pecan or make an entirely almond flour crust instead.
You’ll mix the flour of choice with melted butter, and then the crust mixture is simply pressed into the bottom of the pan—it could be an 8-inch pie pan or springform pan—and then gets baked with the cheesecake mixture, just like regular cheesecake.
In either case, you are getting a buttery richly flavored crust. It’s vital you make certain that you are using pumpkin puree and not pumpkin filling in the recipe.
You want the canned puree that has no sweetener and not the filling that is loaded with sugar. Although not the original recipe, I like adding the orange extract to pumpkin pies.
It’s something my daughter Michelle taught me. The hint of orange flavor really brings out the pumpkin flavor. This recipe calls for pumpkin pie spice for ease but if you prefer you can make your own pumpkin pie spice blend.
Just add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder, 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, 1/2 a teaspoon of ground ginger, 1/8 of a teaspoon of clove powder, and 1/8 of a teaspoon of allspice.
As for the pumpkin cheesecake filling, it’s important all the ingredients are at room temperature so that when you use an electric mixer ( hand mixer) it all blends perfectly for you.
Feel free to add dollops of whipped cream around the edges of the cheesecake for a more festive presentation.
Sugar-Free Sweetener Options
As far as which sugar substitute to use for this sugar-free pumpkin cheesecake, I have a few recommendations. Lakanto Monk Fruit Classic is their white version, and it’s my go-to option whenever a recipe calls for granulated white.
It’s my favorite since the texture and flavor are what I have found to be the closest to real sugar. The brand Swerve which is an erythritol blend, also makes a great white granulated sugar substitute.
You could also use the stevia and erythritol-based brand Pyure if you prefer to use a granulated white stevia-based sweetener. Note that if this is your pick, make sure you reduce the amount called for in the recipe by half since it’s a much sweeter option.
I sure hope you will give this pumpkin keto cheesecake a try.
