When the seasons change, I always have one thing on my mind: FRESH PRODUCE. Purchasing produce while it's in-season, aside from the obvious price reduction, is usually much fresher and higher in nutrients as it likely didn't have to travel as far to show up at your local grocery store. Plus, it just tastes better!  Now that summer has arrived, berries are finaaaaally in-season (and no longer cost $300 + your first born child per 1/2 pint)!

Now that we're fully stocked up on enough blueberries to feed our entire neighborhood, I figured that I needed to put them to good use and develop some fun, new summer recipes. Well, since I'm on a fat bomb kick, the answer was simple: Blueberry Bliss Fat Bombs! The final result is SO GOOD. The texture is perfect and is similar to that of my Lemon Bar Fat Bombs. These fat bombs taste amazing, plus their nutritional value is spot on!

The Benefits of Blueberries

Blueberries are considered to be one of the most nutrient-dense foods available to us. They are loaded with vitamin K, vitamin C, manganese, and fiber, all of which are critical components in a healthy, balanced diet. The antioxidant power of blueberries make them incredibly important in reducing inflammation, boosting brain power, promoting heart health, and supporting digestion.

Low-Carb & Keto Dessert

With only 4.2g net carbs per serving, this recipe serves as a delicious dessert for all of my fellow low-carbers and ketogenic dieters. I especially love the addition of blueberries in these as fruit is typically much too high in carbohydrates for a low-carb lifestyle. For me, personally, eliminating high-carb fruits but maintaining a diet that includes berries has provided me with really positive results. With the inclusion of berries in this recipe, these fat bombs give me a great boost of energy and satisfy my craving for sweets! Win, win!

Paleo (& what I would consider a SWYPO Whole30) Dessert

These fat bombs are perfect for those who follow a paleo lifestyle. Plus, Ryan made an interesting comment that these fat bombs taste very similar to a Blueberry Muffin Larabar. Larabars are enjoyed by many during or after their Whole30 and, since Blueberry Muffin Larabars are non-compliant due to the vanilla extract, these Blueberry Bliss Fat Bombs would be a great option if you find yourself craving some in-season blueberries!

This recipe is keto, low-carb, paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan, and refined-sugar-free.

Prep time: 10 mins
Total time: 1 hour
Yields: Approximately 20 fat bombs, depending on size

Ingredients

2 cups raw cashews, boiled for 12 minutes or soaked for 2 hours
14 oz. frozen blueberries
1 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup coconut butter
1/4-1/2 tsp stevia (depending on your sweetness preference)

Instructions

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat blueberries for about 1 minute, until just slightly warmed.
  2. Combine all ingredients in food processor and blend until well-combined.
  3. Transfer mixture to medium bowl and place in freezer for 30 minutes.
  4. Remove bowl from freezer and, using your hands, form mixture into small balls.
  5. Place balls on pan or plate and return to freezer for 30 minutes. I recommend putting them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper to avoid the bottoms sticking to a plate or pan.
  6. Remove from freezer and enjoy!

Store fat bombs in airtight container in refrigerator.
