Strawberries & Cream Fat Bombs
Strawberries & Cream Fat Bombs
A flavor combination so wonderful, you'll forget you're eating a low-carb/keto dessert!
I prefer to use Artisana's coconut butter in my fat bomb recipes, and, well, let's be real, I also just eat it straight out of the jar prettttyyyy (read: very) regularly. Their products are verified non-GMO, certified organic, and certified C.L.E.A.N. and R.A.W.! Does it get any better than that?!
Now that berries are in-season and don't cost a million dollars for a pint that's gonna rot in 12 seconds, I have been stocking up, especially since frozen berries have been on sale!
Strawberries & Cream Fat Bombs on a Keto/Low-Carb Diet
If you follow a ketogenic (keto) or low-carb diet, you know that most fruit is too high in carbs and sugar to regularly snack on. That's why Strawberries & Cream Fat Bombs are such a beautiful, beautiful thing. Eat just one and your craving for fruit will disappear, you won't spike your blood sugar, and you'll get in lots of healthy fats!
I especially love these Strawberries & Cream Fat Bombs when I've broken my fast, had a meal, and want a small snack before I begin to fast again. I'm rather new to fasting and am currently 16:8 intermittently fasting (16 hours of fasting, 8 hours of feeding). I LOVE the way fasting makes me feel when I'm in ketosis. It's pretty remarkable how much more focused I feel and how significantly my desire to snack on high-carb foods alllllllllll day has decreased. That's particularly why I love fat bombs, they are a delicious treat to look forward to, yet they don't lead me to the refrigerator, the pantry, the cupboards, etc. a million times directly after eating one!
These fat bombs are full of healthy fats, a moderate amount of protein, and come in at 4.9g net carbs per serving (and even less net carbs if you decide to make them smaller!).
You can find a nutrition label including macros of this recipe near the ingredients and directions of the recipe below. As a note, I like to make my fat bombs rather large because, well, idk. I just do. In saying that, you can half the recipe and make them much smaller than I did, which will result in half the calories, net carbs, etc. If you have any questions on this, please don't hesitate to leave a comment below!

Prep time: 5 mins
Total time: 1 hour
Makes: Approximately 15 fat bombs, depending on size
1 cup raw cashews, boiled for 12 minutes or soaked for 2 hours
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup coconut butter
2 cups frozen strawberries
1/8 tsp - 1/4 tsp powdered stevia (depending on your sweetness preference) (NOTE: If you use a brand of stevia that is different than the one I have linked here, you may need to add more. The brand of stevia that I use in this recipe is VERY potent and a little bit goes a very long way!)
- In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave frozen strawberries until just thawed, about 45 seconds, depending on wattage strength of microwave.
- Combine all ingredients in food processor and blend until well-combined.
- Transfer mixture to medium-sized bowl and place in freezer for 20-30 minutes to cool (they may take slightly longer to cool if you chose to boil the cashews rather than soak).
- Remove mixture from freezer and form into balls.
- Place balls in freezer for 25 minutes to harden. I recommend putting them on a cookie sheet or plate lined with parchment paper to avoid the bottoms sticking.
- Remove from freezer once firm. Store in airtight container in freezer (allow to thaw prior to eating).
