Trendy and Pricey
Fat Bombs, have you heard of them? Those doses of luxurious fat mixtures people are putting in their morning coffee in order to rev up the metabolism? Well, they are here and they’re pretty trendy right now. Which means they can be very expensive.
Usually fat bombs come in powder form, are added to morning coffee and can cost up to $4 serving. What I did here was improve the nutritional value of (already awesome) fat bombs + cut the cost way down–like 75% less than your typical fat bomb serving.
What is the Point?
Great question. Since I try to live the ‘low carb’ or ‘keto’ kind of lifestyle and my carbs are very precious to me, I am always looking for ways to maximize them. That’s where the superfood drink Shakeology comes into play in this recipe (and more broadly, in my life). For just 4 carbs and 53 calories in 1 T of the powder, I get super-greens, anti-oxidant fruits, pre- and probiotics, digestive enzymes, stress-reducing adaptogens and 3 servings of veggies.
Chocolate Cake Batter? Yes, Please
Plus, this recipe tastes like chocolate cake or brownie batter. It really does. I eat mine like a peanut butter cup with a cup of coffee in the morning or as a snack to get through the afternoon. This delicious healthy dessert-like bomb gives me energy, even for my fasted workout, and I don’t crave all the way to lunchtime like I used to.
You don’t need to use Kerrygold brand butter, but do find butter from grass-fed cows. It’s nutritionally superior to other butters, tastes amazing and has the most velvety texture on the palate imaginable.
