The keto lifestyle is something that I have tried at various times.

I will be honest with you and say that it is a hard eating protocol for me to commit to long term. Mainly because I don’t do well cutting out food groups and cutting carbs out of my life. However, I do love the way that my body responds to a ketogenic lifestyle and how I feel.

The part that I struggle the most with is making sure that I get in enough fat for the day. It really is a mind shift thing and hard to overcome in the beginning. I found myself getting frustrated the end of each day when I would not have met my fat macros for the day and would find myself hungry the next day.

That was until I discovered fat bombs!

What is the purpose of a keto fat bomb?

A keto fat bomb can be used to satisfy a sweet craving, replace a carb-heavy snack, or to increase the amount of fat that you intake on a particular day. I love to enjoy a keto fat bomb in the evening as a dessert and to help me meet my fat macros for the day. One of the most important factors of a keto lifestyle in making sure you are getting in enough fat and this recipe is a small and delicious way to help with that.

What ingredients for chocolate fat bombs?

  1. Cream cheese
  2. Butter
  3. Heavy cream
  4. Unsweetened cocoa powder
  5. Sweetener
  6. Vanilla extract

What keto-friendly sweetener should be used?

For this recipe, I have used Swerve and stevia and it has turned out great. I have used stevia in the drops form as well as the powdered form and both have worked well. If you choose to use the stevia drops, then 8 to 10 drops will work. You may also use powdered erythritol or monk fruit sweetener.

Place the chocolate fat bombs into the freezer for 30 minutes to 1 hour, until they are set and firm in texture. Remove from the freezer and place in an airtight container or freezer bag for storage. Store in the freezer up to 2 weeks. When ready to serve remove from the freezer the number you want to enjoy and allow them to thaw at room temperature for a few minutes before serving.

I remove from the freezer before sitting down to eat dinner and by the time I have finished eating they are ready to be enjoyed as an after-dinner dessert.

Do you have to keep fat bombs frozen?

No, you do not have to keep fat bombs frozen. I prefer to store them in the freezer because they keep longer and remind me of ice cream. If you prefer not to store them in the freezer, then you may store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 1 to 2 weeks.

How many chocolate cream cheese fat bombs can I have on keto?

This recipe makes a total of 12 individual chocolate cream cheese fat bombs. A single serving is 2 fat bombs. Two fat bombs are a total of 35 grams of fat and less than 5 grams of carbohydrate and protein depending on the brand of ingredients that you use.
