A shortage of pumpkin?
I swear that every year, there is a nasty rumour about a pumpkin shortage. I think it’s a conspiracy. It make sense if you think about it: pumpkin season is short so growers across the nation try to capitalize one people’s love of the big orange gourd.
They want to drive sales in the three short months before Thanksgiving and they start putting out whispers of a bad harvest, a blight, a virulent pumpkin-eating bacteria. They induce a mild panic in us pumpkin lovers, sending us into our local stores to fill our baskets to the brim with canned pumpkin. We buy far more than we need, of course. We arm ourselves for the inevitable pumpkin apocalypse. And then we see display upon display of pumpkin right up into and past the holidays and we realize we were hoodwinked. Again.
Seriously, this scenario has played out almost every year since I became a food blogger. I actually didn’t fall for it this year, amazingly enough. A blogger friend was starting to panic when she couldn’t find canned pumpkin at a few store and I told her to be patient. The Great Pumpkin will come and it will be bountiful, I assured her. And so it did and it was.
Is pumpkin keto friendly?
Many types of winter squash are pretty high carb, but thankfully pumpkin is on the lower end of the scale.
Whereas a cup of cooked acorn or butternut squash has 22g of carbs, a cup of cooked pumpkin has only 12g of carbs. And as very few of us eat a cup of cooked pumpkin straight up, it can definitely be easily worked into keto recipes.
And that wonderful pumpkin flavor comes through perfectly in keto cakes or muffins, even when adding less than a full cup. Accented by warm delicious spices like cinnamon, ginger, and cloves, you can get the full pumpkin experience in a low carb recipe.
So yes, pumpkin is most certainly keto friendly, as long as you are mindful of portion size!
