How to Make Strawberry Coconut Keto Fat Bombs
Refrigerate a can of full fat unsweetened coconut milk over night so that the cream separates from the water and solidifies. The cream at the top is what you want. It should be thick and creamy. Once the cream has separated, measure out ½ cup and discard the water.
Add add the strawberries, Mascarpone, coconut oil and coconut cream to the food processor and blend until well combined.
Add in the Swerve, coconut and vanilla extracts and continue mixing.
Top with the shredded coconut and press down gently, so it will stick. Freeze for 30-45 minutes or until set. These Coconut fat bombs should be stored chilled.
Keep leftovers in the fridge, but for best results store them in the freezer and take them out as you want them.
Are There Carbs in Coconut?
One of the main ingredients in these Keto fats bombs is coconut. The great news is there is only 1 carb per tablespoon of unsweetened coconut.
Is Coconut Keto?
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 times 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!?
