After a high-intensity, sweat-drenched workout, nothing keeps you going like protein and fats. They’re the best kinds of foods to eat when you need to replenish your energy levels, plus they’re incredibly tasty too. Research has shown that consuming protein after a weight-training workout can do wonders for speeding up recovery and optimizing muscle gains, and these keto cream cheese fat bombs contain all the high-fat blasting ingredients you need. (1)
Raspberries for an Antioxidant Boost
The fresh raspberries in this keto cream cheese fat bombs recipe are what set it apart from your average healthy take on dessert. Berries are one of the healthiest foods you can eat. They’re an excellent source of antioxidants and studies have shown that they help in reducing stress. (2) Berries are also a good source of fiber. They’re one of the foods, much like bananas, that enables you to feel fuller for longer. This could lead to consuming fewer calories in a day, helping you lose weight, and being generally healthier. I suggest buying frozen berries in bulk, repackaging them into freezer-friendly containers, and then portioning them out so that you can efficiently use a handful or two at a time.
To start making this recipe, begin by lining an 8×8 inch baking pan with parchment paper, and then in a bowl add cream cheese and stevia sweetener, use the whisk attachment in your blender to beat the mixture.
Stevia – Nature’s Sweetener
Stevia is an intensely sweet-tasting plant that has been used to sweeten beverages since forever. Stevia can be classified as “zero-calorie,” because the calories per serving are so low, plus it’s been shown to be a healthy alternative to sugar for those living with diabetes. (3) Once you’ve got your cream cheese and stevia mixture together, add vanilla extract and half of the heavy cream, then mix for a couple of minutes. Add the remaining heavy cream and mix on medium speed for 3 minutes until the mixture is thick with firm peaks.
This delicious sweet snack delivers the right amount of fats and protein and serves me well when I need a sweet treat to end the day. Now it’s your turn to enjoy all the benefits associated with keto friendly cooking. All you need to do now is to pour the blended mixture into the baking pan, combine the pureed raspberries and stevia then spoon the raspberry mixture over the cream cheese mixture and freeze for about 2-3 hours until it’s set. Pack your keto cream cheese fat bombs into a resealable freezer-friendly container so that you can eat a few whenever you want!
