How to Make Keto Coconut Lime Fat Bombs
The night before you make these low carb coconut fat bombs, refrigerate a can of full fat unsweetened coconut milk so the cream can separate from the water and solidify. The cream at the top is what you want. It should be thick and creamy. Once the cream has separated, measure out 1/2 cup of just the cream and save the rest for another recipe.
Spoon into a mini tart pan (or other fat bomb mold), that’s been sprayed with coconut oil.
Top each one with a little extra unsweetened shredded coconut and lime zest.
Place them in the freezer for 30 minutes or until fully set.
You will want to keep these fat bombs chilled. They’ll be a little soft in the fridge, so you may prefer to store them in the freezer until you want one, then just pop it in the fridge and allow to thaw for a few minutes.
One of the things that makes these Keto fat bombs incredibly rich and smooth is Mascarpone cheese which is made from heavy cream instead of whole milk like that in cream cheese. The extra fat from the heavy cream is what gives Mascarpone a slightly sweeter, more buttery flavor.
Mascarpone cheese has a 50% fat content, which really helps boost your healthy fat intake!
How Many Carbs in Coconut?
Another key ingredient in these Keto fats bombs is unsweetened coconut flakes. The great news is there is only 1 carb per tablespoon of unsweetened coconut.
Is Coconut Keto Friendly?
Yes! Unlike many other fruits that are high in carbs, coconuts are mostly fiber and fat. Even better, the fat found in coconuts is MCT (medium-chain-triglycerides), which promotes a feeling of fullness and has been linked to other healthy benefits.

Why Eat Keto Fat Bombs?
A Ketogenic Diet consists of a high amount of fat, moderate protein and low carbs, so the bulk of our calories come from healthy fats. If we don’t consume enough healthy fat, we run the risk of following a high protein diet which is not Keto!
Some people struggle with this concept, since we’re been told for many years that fat is bad and we should eat low/no fat. Nothing could be further from the truth!
These fats can include butter, heavy cream, coconut and coconut oil, avocados and avocado oil, mascarpone cheese, olive oil, cream cheese to name a few.

Adding these healthy fats into our meals is key, but there are days when you just don’t have enough or doesn’t quite fit into a particular meal that you’re preparing. Fat bombs are perfect for times like this, where you can consume one or two and get your healthy fats in your macros! Most recipes make a fairly decent amount and most often can be frozen, so you can always have some on hand!
Another great perk to most fat bombs is they double as a sweet treat, that doesn’t kick you out of Ketosis! Who doesn’t love a bite of something sweet, without having to make an entire cake, pie or batch of cupcakes!?
