5 Thanksgiving Keto Ingredient Swaps


Celebrating Thanksgiving this year with your friends and/or family members? Don’t know if there will be any keto food options? We got you covered! We put together a list of 5 keto ingredient swaps that you can use to keto-fy almost any Thanksgiving dish!

1. Mashed Cauliflower for Mashed Potatoes

Mashed cauliflower has an almost identical texture to mashed potatoes, as it is just as soft, creamy, and silky. With a few extra ingredients, this mashed cauliflower recipe by Taryn @JoyFilledEats is a super flavorful and low-carb side dish to feature on your Thanksgiving dinner table!

2. Pumpkin and Cauliflower for Sweet Potatoes

Bringing back the cauliflower for this recipe! The creaminess of the mashed cauliflower mixed with the sweetness of the pumpkin create the perfect low carb alternative to mashed sweet potatoes. Topped with a crunchy pecan topping, this recipe Kelly @LifeMadeSweeter is the perfect keto substitute for the classic Thanksgiving sweet potato casserole!

3. Fat Snax Cookies for Graham Crackers

Thanksgiving is THE holiday for pumpkin pies, pecan pies, and all things pie. Our keto pie crust recipe is the perfect recipe to use in substitution for graham cracker crust and any other pie crust. Made with crushed Fat Snax cookies, our recipe is packed with flavor and healthy fats. Fat yeah!

4. Almond Flour Bread for Bread

Looking for a way to make Thanksgiving stuffing keto? Follow @Four ScoreLiving’s low carb stuffing recipe! This recipe involves making your own low carb bread from scratch and then mixing it in with other ingredients to make the stuffing. The keto bread recipe is made with almond flour, however it still provides the same texture as regular bread.

5. Pork Rinds for Fried Onions 

Green bean casseroles are essential side dishes/appetizers for Thanksgiving. The creaminess of the green beans and crunchiness of the fried onions create the perfect combo. The only downside is that the fried onions are high in carbs. We found out from Kim @LowCarbMaven that pork rinds deliver the same crunchiness and flavor as fried onions. Additionally, pork rinds are low in carbs and high in fat!!
