10 Keto Thanksgiving Recipes That Actually Taste Great!

Are you on the keto diet? Nervous about the approaching holidays and all that carb-loaded food? Stay healthy - and full! - with these keto Thanksgiving recipes.


There are lots of common sources of holiday stress that can be unavoidable. What you're going to eat shouldn't be one of them.

The Thanksgiving holiday should be a time when you enjoy a great meal with your friends and family, but if you are on the keto diet, that can be an unexpected challenge. 

Lots of traditional Thanksgiving foods--from stuffing to dessert to side dishes--are heavy on the carbs, but there are ways to reinvent them. As the keto diet has grown in popularity, easy and accessible keto recipes have become more available. 

You can have a low-carb Thanksgiving without having to sacrifice taste or flavor. The low-carb Thanksgiving recipes may not be what you grew up with, but they are a great starting point for a new tradition of a keto Thanksgiving. 

Below, we're sharing 10 keto Thanksgiving recipes to add to your table. Read on to learn more!

1. Pumpkin Soup

There’s nothing more comforting than a warm bowl of creamy soup to nourish you both physically and mentally.  We love this pumpkin soup and think it’s perfect to add to your holiday menu.  We added lots of superfood ingredients, such as digestive-boosting ginger, blood sugar-stabilizing cinnamon and gut-healing bone broth to boost the health benefits of this soon-to-be-favorite holiday recipe.

 

2. Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Butternut Squash

Elevate your side dish game by trying our Roasted Brussel Sprout recipe, getting into your greens has never been so easy!  

3. Mashed Cauliflower 

Here is a new versatile staple that will keep your dinners low carb, paired with chicken, beef or pork- this side truly compliments any dish!

4. Stuffed Mushrooms

Who doesn’t love a cheesy stuffed mushroom, bite-sized and easy to grab while catching up with loved ones at your holiday gathering?  These shitakes are filled with blue cheese and extra-sharp cheddar and topped with crunchy bacon and minced fresh herbs--a sure and flavorful way to wow your guests and get the party started! 

5. Turkey

It wouldn't be a keto Thanksgiving--or Thanksgiving in general--without turkey. Fortunately, the meal's main event is also keto-friendly. If you have a tried-and-true method that you've been using for years, there's no reason to mix it up now. 

If you are looking to change things up this year, a butter roasted turkey yields crispy skin and flavorful, juicy meat. Herbs and citrus also make a great addition to a flavorful turkey that will impress everyone around your Thanksgiving table. 

6. Turkey Gravy

When you think of low-carb Thanksgiving recipes, you probably don't think about gravy. And for good reason. A lot of people on a keto diet probably assume they have to give up gravy because it is almost always thickened using flour. This gravy is perfect to stick to your diet and enjoy a Thanksgiving meal. 

7. Keto Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauce is traditionally mostly sugar and very little actual berries, but our version with fresh cranberries has added fat to help you stay in ketosis without having to give up your favorite holiday flavors.

 

8. Low Carb Dinner Rolls

These Dinner Rolls are impossible to resist! The crispy outer shell gives it the perfect crunch along with the soft warm middle to tie it all together!

9. Sausage Stuffing

 Want to stay low carb this holiday season but still, want to indulge in amazing holiday dressing? We've got you covered!!

10. No-Bake Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pie

The ultra-decadent no-bake pie has the perfect combination of creamy and crunchy and can be made up to 2 days in advance of serving. We love the added Pumpkin Pie flavored Prime D+ that truly sets this dessert apart. Be sure to add this to your holiday menu, we know everyone will enjoy!
