Cooking Keto with Kristie Fat Bombs
What exactly are these fat bombs?
Fat bombs are sweet snacks that are low in carbohydrates and do not include any sugar at all. You can produce a fat bomb from virtually any food that is high in fat, does not contain sugar, and contains few carbohydrates. The creation typcally includes coconut cream, coconut shavings, ricotta cheese, avocado, and/or nut butters.
Cooking Keto with Kristie is a popular YouTube channel where she concocts delicious fat bombs/keto bombs that are healthy, tasty, and fully keto kosher. Fat bombs are versatile foods you can consume in various contexts, including as a snack, a replacement for a meal, or a side dish.
Coconut oil and high-fat dairy products, the two substances most commonly found in fat bombs, have many positive effects on one’s health. This is due to the fact that coconut oil includes medium-chain triglycerides, often known as MCTs. MCTs are a form of fat that is quickly absorbed and used as fuel. Ketones are a type of fat that is produced by the body as it digests foods like coconut oil.
Even fat bombs made with high-fat dairy offer special advantages for one’s health. The advantages are due to the presence of vitamins, minerals, and a kind of fatty acid known as conjugated linoleic acid in their composition (CLA).
The discovery made through research is that this particular fatty acid can protect against heart disease, boost immune function, and cut down on body fat.
CLA is found in greater levels in dairy products that come from grass-fed cows 100% of the time and are healthy. (keep this in mind when you start looking for high-fat dairy to put in your fat bombs).
Making your fat bomb
First, you have to decide what tastes and textures you want.
A fat bomb can taste savory, sweet, sour, bitter, crunchy, chewy, melted, cheesy, or spicy. However, it is not a good idea to mix all of these flavors together. Before we get into the nuts and bolts of how to make a fat bomb, you need to decide what kind of food adventure you want to have.
Find your fat base. This is the second step.
For almost all types of fat bombs, you need a fat base that can harden when chilled and stay that way at room temperature (softening is fine). Research often shows that people use coconut oil and butter as fat bases. Butter from cows that only eat grass is the healthiest choice. Another type of fat foundation that you can use is cream cheese.
If you want to experiment with other less typical fat bases, you could try using animal fats like tallow. You could attempt melting and reforming cheese with your ketogenic ingredients already in it. Both of these options are available to you.
Step 3: Acquire Any Additional Necessary Ketogenic Ingredients
After you have located the fat base for your fat bomb, search through your kitchen cabinets or visit a local store. Here you’ll acquire the remaining components that will go into your fat bomb.
Salt-free and calorie-free sweeteners such as sucralose or erythritol. Then the powdered versions of your favorite herbs and spices are three items that should never be out of stock in your kitchen.
The following is an incomplete list of other components that might be suitable additions to your fat bomb:
- Cacao powder
- flakes made of coconut.
- Low-carb maple syrup
- Nuts Butters and flours made from nuts
- Seeds (like flaxseed, chia seeds, or hemp seeds) (like flaxseed, chia seeds, or hemp seeds)
- Ceylon Cinnamon Berries (like blackberries or blueberries)
- Crumbs of bacon
- Meat that has been cooked and finely chopped (like salami, salmon, or steak)
- Chopped and dried herbs
- Low-carb vegetables (like scallions or onions)
- Fruits low in carbs (like wild blueberries or tomatoes)
- Full-fat cream
- Creme fraiche
- Coconut cream
- Lemon juice
Putting everything together is the last step.
Form all of your tasty ketogenic ingredients, along with the fat base you’ve chosen, into a ball or bar, and enjoy!
To do this, first, melt or soften the fat base, then blend or mix in the other ingredients. You can roll the melted fat into balls or cut it into bars, depending on how you like to eat it, and then store it in the fridge. You can put the melted fat base in a container, a tray, or a plate and chill it in the fridge until it hardens. Your fat bomb can also be frozen in most cases so that you can pull it out at a later date when you don’t feel like messing up the kitchen. Or when you have keto company over. Always remember that the focus is always on training your body to burn fat and not carbs.
