Yes, pumpkin is one of the keto-friendly vegetables. It is not the lowest carb vegetable but let say that on a ranking from A to F – F being the worst, it is clearly a B.
This means that 1 cup of pumpkin only contains 3.8 g net carbs. So if you want to indulge in keto pumpkin desserts during the fall season, it is fine! Keep things in moderation. Of course, desserts are still desserts and won’t replace a meal.
The secret of a smooth, light mousse with tiny bubbles is a perfect whipped cream. Scroll down to read more about how to make the perfect whipped cream every time. But first, let’s see the ingredients you need to make the most delicious keto pumpkin mousse.

I love to use a glass bowl for the best result. Also, make sure you use full-fat heavy cream straight out from the fridge.
Finally, measure the cream and start whipping at medium speed for 2 minutes until frothy, then increase to high speed for 3-4 more minutes.
The cream is ready when it forms solid trails and a soft stiff peak. Don’t over whisk, or it gets very firm. I recommend 5-6 minutes in total for this keto pumpkin mousse.
You can use both in this recipe, heavy cream or heavy whipped cream. They are both the same thing, containing at least 36% of milk fat. I do prefer heavy cream as it is easier to whip and holds better if you intend to store the mousse for few days in the fridge.
