(Please note this post has been updated from the original 6 years ago). Since then I have made quite a few pumpkin recipes on this blog. But for starters check out this 9 low carb pumpkin recipes post to see some of my favorites.
Recipe ingredients I used.
The simple ingredients I used for this no bake pumpkin cheesecake are:
- canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
- Swerve brown sugar sweetener (or Lakanto golden)
- cream cheese
- heavy whipping cream
- vanilla extract
- pumpkin pie spice
- raw pecans.
Note that I used raw pecans, however you could use walnuts, almonds or a combination of any of these. If you don’t have any raw nuts, another option is to use almond flour and melted butter to make the crust.
No need to bake it. The butter will keep the almond flour together. I prefer the taste of raw nuts though.
What Size Jar Should I Use?
The last time I made this recipe I used 4 of these 8 oz jars pictured below but to be honest they were too big. This keto dessert is very rich and I think it would be better if you made it into 8 smaller desserts.
So this time I used some 3.5 oz glass dessert dishes pictured below that I bought at a discount store. The closest ones I could find similar to these are these glass dishes on Amazon.
Using a smaller container you can get 8 servings from this recipe which is more appropriate.
How to make no bake pumpkin keto cheesecake.
Step 1: First you want to make your nut crumb base. Just add some nuts to your food processor along with some sweetener and cinnamon. I used all raw pecans this time but sometimes I add walnuts.
Step 2: Divide the mixture between all of your containers and press to make a pseudo pecan crust. Since I used the small glass containers I divided it between 8 containers.
Step 3: Then you move on to the pumpkin cheesecake mixture. The key to this cheesecake filling is to use room temperature cream cheese. That’s the only way to get the lumps out. And keep your heavy cream really cold. Don’t pull it out of the refrigerator until you need it.
Add the cream cheese, pureed pumpkin, spices and sweetener to your mixing bowl and beat until creamy. Then add your cream and beat for about 5 minutes until the mixture has a light and fluffy texture.
Step 4: Spoon your cheesecake mixture into each container. Top with a few nuts and a sprinkle of cinnamon if you want. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until you are ready to eat. (Please scroll down to view and read the recipe card.) (Please scroll down to view and read the recipe card.)
That’s it folks. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. I hope you give these keto sweet treats a try because it’s super easy and tasty and best of all it only takes about 15 minutes!
