If you’re doing keto, fat bombs are an excellent way to get enough healthy fats into your diet, and are often quite easy to make. In addition to that, sweet fat bombs, like this one, can help you satisfy your sweet tooth.
You can make fat bombs by including some of your favorite high-fat and low-carb foods together. They can be sweet or savory.
The purpose of a fat bomb is to increase your dietary fats, which helps increase ketone production in the body. Many people use them for instant energy or focus.
Coconut oil is an excellent ingredient for fat bombs because most of its calories are from healthy, anti-inflammatory fats.
These coconut no-bake fat bombs are quick and easy to make and you can eat them straight away – you don’t need to put them in the freezer before eating (it’s still nice to leave them in the fridge for a couple of hours, if you can resist the temptation). The cream cheese gives them a very rich texture, so we’re sure you’ll love them.
Instead of almonds, you can use any other topping you like – shredded coconut, melted chocolate, or other nuts. The options are countless.
If you don’t have stevia extract at hand, you can also use erythritol, monk fruit or another keto-friendly sweetener.
Different brands of cream cheese will have a different amount of carbs, so make sure to check the label. For the recipe, we used Philadelphia Classic.
Let’s Do It!
Blend the coconut with stevia extract, vanilla, and coconut oil.
Put the cream cheese in the blender and mix to combine with the other ingredients.
With your hands, form small spheres from the mixture.
Stick some shredded almonds on top. Serve and enjoy.
