Keto Pumpkin Mascarpone Frosting ?
Or Spread ??
Because pumpkin is always a good idea, we paired this delicious fall staple with a touch of Italian mascarpone cheese, vanilla, and (of course!) some homemade pumpkin pie spice. An ideal keto pumpkin mascarpone frosting.
Because aside from topping our keto chocolate muffins this fall, we’ve been using it as a spread quite a bit.
Picture a beautiful and chilly fall morning, a slice of keto bread with a generous spread of pumpkin mascarpone. And finished off, of course, with a keto pumpkin spice latte.
Because pumpkin everything. And because 1g net carbs.
The Pumpkin Pie Spice ?
We recently made a homemade pumpkin pie spice batch, with freshly grated nutmeg. And it was killer, so we highly suggest you ditch the pre-made mix.
The Sweetener ?
Pick your poison.
Though do note that we like Swerve best here. No funky aftertaste.
Pyure also works, just note that it’s not our top choice here. It seems that it leaves behind a slight stevia trace, though it might just be us.
Just note that we find both these sweeteners to be quite sweet (despite Swerve technically being 1-to-1 and Pyure just twice as sweet as sugar). So be sure to add either little by little to taste!
Keto Pumpkin Mascarpone Frosting (or Spread) ?
Because pumpkin is always a good idea, we paired this delicious fall staple with a touch of Italian mascarpone cheese, vanilla, and (of course!) some homemade pumpkin pie spice. An ideal frosting or spread.
Make mascarpone pumpkin spice filling by mixing all the ingredients (aside from the sweetener) thoroughly in a bowl. Taste and sweeten to taste.
Store, covered and refrigerated for up to 5 days.
Note that if you would like a thicker frosting or spread (or even decrease carbs further), you can always reduce the pumpkin puree. Though we must say we're keen on the pumpkin-ness.
