. Keto Bombs

. Keto Bombs

Keto bombs. And sometimes even fat fudge. I know fat bombs would typically
sound like a not so healthy choice but if you’re on a keto diet and trying to incorporate more dietary fat and keep the ratio of fat
to protein and carbs high, then fat bombs can help. Whether you’re on the keto diet or not, we can all benefit from
healthy dietary sources of fat. And it’s gonna help keep
you full longer so fat bombs can be a great snack to
prep and keep in your fridge or freezer for when you get

hungry and just need a snack to hold you over. If you wanna learn more
about the keto diet, check out my keto 101 video and my how to get into ketosis fast video linked in the description. Today, I’m sharing eight fat bombs total. First up, Berry Fudge fat bombs. (upbeat music) I start by blending together
strawberries and blueberries but you can use any berries you like with any kind of nut butter. I went with almond butter,
melted coconut oil, and sweetener of choice. Keep in mind, you’ll want a
low-carb sweetener for keto so something like stevia or
monk fruit are popular options. You can use whatever you
want but just know the carbs will affect how much of
a fat bomb it really is. I used a liquid sweetener in
all of the sweet ones today since it integrates easily. It’s a high fiber syrup so
the net carbs are very low. Not sponsored but I will
link it the description. I also have a sweeteners
video if you want help knowing which sweeteners might be right for you. That gets blended and then
distributed into silicone molds. (upbeat music) Freeze. After a few hours they’re
ready to pop out and enjoy. I keep them in the freezer
and just take one out whenever I need, letting it thaw for
a few minutes beforehand. They’re rich like fudge
but melt in your mouth. So light, fruity, and almost
like a PB&J in fudge form. Okay, let’s alternate between
sweet and savory fat bombs today because both are totally
possible and worth making. Sometimes we crave sweet
but sometimes salty. So why not? These are super easy. Everything bagel fat bombs. It’s just a ball of whipped cream cheese rolled in Everything
but the Bagel Seasoning. You can use the one from
Trader Joe’s of course but you can also make your
own using a mix of sesame and black sesame seeds, salt, minced garlic and onion, and poppy seeds. You may want to make your own anyways because the Trader
Joe’s one is quite salty and if you do it yourself
then you’re in control of the salt content. Boom, savory little
bagel bites ready to go. Salty, creamy, and a nice
sharp bite of cheese. These are of course best
stored in the fridge and I recommend keeping them covered. FYI, you can also whip up dairy-free cream cheese variations for this. I have found that the almond
milk based cream cheeses whip up better than the coconut based ones but you can do what works for you. The next bomb is– (laughing) – You diffused my first
bomb but you should know I always bring back up. – Back up, huh? Speaking of backs. You better watch yours. – No. – No, no, no. Fat bombs, not real dynamite. (sighs) The next one is a classic sweet combo, white chocolate raspberry. (upbeat music) Melt coconut oil and
cacao butter in a saucepan or in the microwave until integrated. Mix in your sweetener and
then pour into silicone molds and freeze for an hour or so to set. (upbeat music) Then, blend the raspberries
into a puree and pour that on in a second layer on top of
the first frozen white layer. With cacao butter, it’s common
for the sweetener to separate so you can omit and just
let these be naturally sweet and tangy from the
raspberries but it’s up to you. Freeze again and you’ll
end up with these adorable two layer bombs of goodness. Rich from the cacao but light
and tart from the raspberries. And raspberries are a
great lower carb berry too. Next, pizza fat bombs anyone? Wait, is this the right channel? FYI, I have another channel
that I host with my boyfriend, Christian that is all about pizza. Heads up, it is not healthy. And if you’re enjoying these recipes, don’t forget to subscribe to
this channel and hit the bell to be notified of new
recipes and videos each week. For pizza fat bombs I
combine whipped cream cheese, diced pepperoni, Parmesan, diced olives, sun dried tomatoes, and basil. (upbeat music) I make those into little balls. (upbeat music) I mix together hemp hearts and Parmesan and roll the pizza cream
cheese balls into that coating. Oh man, talk about a
bite of savory goodness. It legit tastes like a pizza. The olives, pepperoni, and cream
cheese all give it a lovely salty bite balanced by the acidity of the tomatoes and
freshness of the basil. The hemp seed coating also adds
a nice contrast and texture. So fun. The last bomb of the day is– Okay, for the last one, we had to have some chocolate
before the video was over. Chocolate peppermint fat bombs. I melt and mix together

coconut oil and dark chocolate. Make sure it’s 100% dark for
no sugar or carbs if needed. That gets frozen as my first layer. Then for the second layer,
I melt coconut butter, coconut oil, and sweetener together and stir in some peppermint extract. It goes on top of the chocolate and boom. So adorable. If you wanted to get creative
you can also do three layers. There’s no right or wrong here. And you can really use any
molds for all of these too. Peppermint and chocolate
is a classic combination. I think we saved the best for last. These are super chocolatey and
remember, it’s not as sweet because it’s so dark. So if you don’t like a
super dark chocolate, then definitely add sweetener. It’s like a chocolate peppermint
patty kicked up a notch. It’s rich, decadent, and totally satisfying
for that dessert craving. And those are your fat
bombs recipes for today. If you want three more including my chocolate almond sea salt and coconut lime sweet
fat bombs as well as my, say what, crab salad fat bombs.

Keto Smoothies

Keto Smoothies

Keto diet is up to you and it’s all about your overall ratio of fat to protein and carbohydrates, and your carbohydrate tolerance, so you need to do what works for you. Today I’ve got five low-carb
smoothie recipes in this video, and then three more for a total of eight in the free e-book that you can download using the link in the description box. Let’s start with cucumber,
celery, matcha, lean and green. (upbeat music) In to my blender I add,
baby cucumber, celery, avocado, and coconut or MCT oil. So MCT stands for medium

chain triglyceride, or medium change fatty acids, and it’s a type of fat
derived from coconut oil. It’s colorless, odorless, and stays liquid at room temperature, so a lot of people on a low carb diet add it to
food, coffee, or smoothies to boost the fat content in their diet. It’s easy to digest,
and suppresses hunger. Remember, you really shouldn’t be hungry on a low-carb diet, and it
provides quick, clean energy for your body, and especially your brain. We can all benefit from
MCTs, low-carb or not. I also add matcha powder. Make sure you use a high quality brand, which will mean it’s a vibrant green, and annoyingly expensive. I’ve linked a bran I use
sometimes in the description, but it isn’t my only brand choice, and feel free to add
low-carb friendly sweetener, or stevia drops to taste. Finally, for my liquid,
I add creamy cashew milk, but you can use whatever you prefer. Blend it up. I love the vibrant, and
fresh color and taste Cucumber is always so distinct
to me when it’s in a smoothie and I like it. This smoothie only has
six grams of net carbs, and all of the nutrition
info for all these smoothies can be found in the free
e-book, along with the recipes. Next up, a low carb golden milk smoothie. (upbeat music) I start with coconut milk

from the can, shake it up. Make sure it’s really well integrated, and then add that to an ice cube tray to make coconut milk ice cubes. They may separate a bit while freezing, but it’s no biggie. Just keep those in the freezer for whenever you need them
for smoothies or cooking. Thaw them out for a few minutes before adding to your smoothie. For this smoothie, I add
coconut milk ice cubes with an additional
splash of milk, MCT oil, and remember that can
always be coconut oil, vanilla extract, turmeric for
a nutritious golden boost, cinnamon, ground ginger,
salt, and sweetener to taste. Naturally sweet, cinnamon-y,
and a kick from those spices. I love the creaminess the
coconut milk provides, and this smoothie only has
four grams of net carbs. How about a berries and
cream protein smoothie? (upbeat music) This one starts with frozen raspberries, which are one of the fruits
lowest in carbohydrates, then I add MCT or coconut oil, a scoop of collagen protein powder, optional sweetener to taste,
and low-fat coconut milk. A lot of people are mistaken, and believe that Keto means no fruit. Keto does not mean no fruit, it means very high in fat,
and very low in carbohydrates. We all have a different
carbohydrate tolerance, and the only way to know is to
test your blood ketone levels while tracking your macronutrient intake, so if you can keep your
ratio working for your body, while still eating some fruit, go for it. Some people, most people,
can have some fruit, or at least berries. Probably most people
will have to stay away from higher sugar fruits
like bananas, and mangoes, to keep their carb content down, but it’s mistaken to
say that Keto means no to any specific food. It’s really about the overall
carbohydrate consumption, and fat ratio. This smoothie is creamy,
sweet, with a bit of tang, and I love using collagen protein powder, because the one I use is flavorless, so I don’t even know it’s there. I am not a huge sweetened
protein powder fan, and I do love the joint,
hair, and nail benefits that collagen provides. Okay, bullet-proof smoothie anyone? This cinnamon, almond bullet-proof shake is delicious, and filling. I start with some of those
coconut milk ice-cubes, MCT oil, almond butter,
flax meal, cinnamon, sweetener to taste, a
pinch of salt, and coffee. Blend it all up. Okay, if you want your coffee
boost kicked up a notch, this shake will do it. You’ve got the caffeine from the coffee, the brain boost from the CMTs, and just the invigorating excitement from this being a delicious,

indulgent low-carb shake. Six grams of net carbs,
so much satisfaction. The last one I’m sharing here is perhaps the most desert-like. Surprise, blackberry cheesecake. Frozen blackberries, cream cheese, or if you’re a dairy-free low-carber, you could sue coconut milk, but of course, it won’t have the same cheesecake effect. I have seen a coconut based cream cheese at Trader Joe’s, that could
work, but I haven’t tried it. I’m also adding MCT oil, vanilla extract, optional sweetener, a pinch of salt, coconut milk, and water. This one is the most indulgent. It’s extremely delicious, but it’s also the highest in carbs. There about 10 grams of
net carbs in this smoothie. Keep in mind, some people can handle that. Personally, when I did Keto, and tracked my blood ketone levels, I can handle about 40 to
50 grams of carbs a day, and still remain in ketosis. Some people can only handle 20 or less. It really depends on the person, so if you know this
smoothie won’t work for you, I apologize, but I hope
one of the others will.
