What is Ketogenic Diet?
Low Carb lifestyle and Ketogenic diet are very close to each other and most of the time one compliments one another. Difference between those two is, that Low Carb lifestyle is a little bit lighter or less strict way of looking at cutting your carbs or adding the amount of Fat.
A ketogenic diet is where one tries to get the carbohydrates into a complete minimum and instead tries to get as much fat as possible into the system. In that way, the body slowly transforms into Ketosis and starts burning fat instead of carbohydrates for the energy it needs. That happens, when our body has got a lack of glucose and starts producing small molecules called ketones.
There are different reason people are following a Ketogenic diet.
Some follow the diet because of various health reasons. One of the proven examples following the Ketogenic Diet is with a great reduction of seizures in kids and adults suffering from Epilepsy.
Majority of people follow the Ketogenic diet for weight management. The Internet offers various sources, where the Macro-nutrients are calculated and suggests exactly how much of the Calories, Carbs, Protein and Fats you should consume. Some people follow those Macro-nutrients calculations and try to follow the numbers as much as possible. And there come to the option for Fat bombs.
Keto Fat Bombs
Most of the time, it is very easy to get the amount of Protein and carbs into your body, since the Macro-nutrients are calculated in a way, where the majority of the percentages are Fat. And as most people really struggle with ways to add that fat without just taking scoops of butter or coconut oil into you, which is not tasty at all, Fat Bombs has been implemented.
In our family, because of our daughters Diabetes, we follow Low Carb lifestyle as per Dr. Bernstein, where we do try and add as much protein as possible, for her growth. We do not add extra fat or follow the amount of fat we have.
Fat Bombs are small shaped snacks, most of the time on a sweet side, which are filled with as much fat as possible and therefore gives you enough fat, you so struggle to get as per your Macros. They help you to feel full for a longer time period with just a small piece.
There are various names used like Fat bombs, Keto Bombs, Fudge, which are at the end all the same thing.
Since they are containing mostly all of the healthy fats like Coconut oil, butter or any nut butter, yes, they are extremely healthy, but like all, eaten with caution. They also do not contain any refined sugar or carbohydrates, which is added advantage. But since they are really filling, I do believe, you would not even be able to eat too many of them.
They are also perfect if you do have a sweet tooth and need something tiny and sweet to have. In that case, I have few pieces in my freezer and just take one and all of the cravings is gone.
Fat Bombs are a perfect in-between snack, especially when craving something sweet.
They are great after-dinner desserts when you are not yet full and would like to get something sweet.
Fat Bombs will satisfy your craving even after a few bits because of the fat intake.
What do Keto Fat Bombs do?
Fat Bombs fill you up immediately after the first few bites because of their Fat intake.
If you are craving something sweet and you take an ordinary dessert, you will have to eat a significant portion for you to feel full.
That is not the case with Fat Bombs, and the opposite is true.
Therefore you might find most Fat Bombs recipes in tiny bite sizes.
Just a few bites and you feel full.
What sweeteners to use for fat bombs?
As our Cream Cheese Fat Bombs do not need to be cooked, you can use any of the sweeteners you have at home and use.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON CREAM CHEESE FAT BOMBS
First Step: Prepare all Ingredients
Prepare all of your ingredients together on the kitchen counter.
Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature. Otherwise, you might have the whole mixture curdled.
Having everything at room temperature, you will achieve the best creaminess in your keto fat bombs.
Second Step: Add all ingredients into a whisking jar
Add all of the ingredients one by one into a big jar or a whisking jar.
Make sure your jar is big enough to whisk all the ingredients afterward.
Third Step: Whisk all
Using a hand blender, whisk all together into a smooth, creamy consistency.
Fourth Step: Pour into two separate jars.
Once everything is mixed into a smooth consistency, and you wish to follow the steps of coloring your fat bombs, separate them into two jars.
Fifth Step: Add Coloring
Add your natural coloring into each jar.
You can either use a store-bought natural coloring or make your own by boiling various berries and getting the liquid out as much as possible.
Sixth Step: Whisk
Whisk each container together with the coloring until you get the desired color.
Seventh Step: Pour into your molds.
Once you are satisfied with the colors, fill your molds with the mixture.
For the whole mixture to set correctly and avoid the bubbles, gently bang the molds against the kitchen counter a few times.
With regards to molds, you can use various options mentioned above. As you see in the video, I have used the heart shapes as our fat bombs have been prepared foValentines.
Place in the freezer for 1 to 2 hours.
Once they are set, you can take them out of the molds.
Place all in a Ziploc bag and store in your freezer whenever needed.
Tips and tricks
- Ingredients – should all be at room temperature, so they combine thoroughly and integrate one into another. It will also prevent curdling, just in case one of the ingredients will be cold.
- Molds – any small bite-size molds will work. I have used hearts as those were made for Valentine’s.
- Coloring – is optional, and you can also use homemade natural colors, where you boil your berries and let them cook until most of the water evaporates.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What if the mixture really curdles?
Sometimes by adding either different temperature of ingredients or just by adding lemon into it, it is possible that the whole mixture gets curdled. But no worry. All you have to do is, place it in the microwave for a few seconds and then mix it properly again.
That way, all of the ingredients get nicely combined into one smooth, rich and flavorful batter.
How to store Keto Fat Bomb?
Once they are placed into your preferred mold containers, place them into the freezer for the shapes to freeze. In that way, it is much easier to handle them afterward. Once frozen properly, take them out of the molds and store them in an airtight plastic container, or a sealable bag, which will take much less space in the freezer as the whole molds altogether.
Afterward, you can either keep them in the fridge or a freezer. We have them always in the freezer, because of longer shelf life and as well, since they are mostly tiny pieces, it takes less than a few minutes for them to melt into perfection.
Can you freeze Keto Fat Bombs?
As already mentioned above, yes, they are perfect to freeze and also keep in the freezer for up to a year.
Perfect frozen Treat is our Sugar- Free Mini Popsicles, which are filled with healthy fats as well and their creaminess is just irresistible to refuse. Another great option is Yogurt Protein Popsicles.
One perfect recipe for you to look at are those Keto Peanut Butter Cups Fat Bombs.
