7 Keto-Friendly Recipes to Satisfy Your Pumpkin Pie Craving

If you're on the keto diet, you probably think the closest you'll come to pumpkin pie this fall is carving a jack-o'-lantern. Surely the starchy squash is a total carb-buster, right? Wrong!

The good-for-you gourds contain only 6 net carbs per 100 grams and can be enjoyed in moderation as part of a ketogenic eating plan. And while the classic pumpkin pie may not be on the table, there are plenty of other ways to indulge.

From sweet to savory, these seven keto-friendly pumpkin recipes are the perfect way to celebrate the season without loading up on carbs.

This dessert is the best part of pumpkin pie minus the high-carb crust. The pie filling stays velvety and moist thanks to coconut oil and nut or seed butter. At 22 carbs per serving, it's a bit of a splurge for keto followers, but it contains half the carbs of your average pumpkin pie, which will cost you a whopping 46 grams of carbs per slice.

Creamy pumpkin soup is the perfect comfort food for a crisp fall night. This savory soup gets its spicy flavor from red curry paste and its creaminess from coconut milk. For an extra creamy texture, make this soup the night before you wish to serve it, so it has time to thicken.
