Recipe: Layered chocolate peppermint fat bombs
Keto this and keto that. What does this new (and very popular) dietary craze mean?
It’s high fat and ultra low carb. It tells your body to burn fat for fuel. Yes, it actually reprograms your body to burn fat.
Sounds good, doesn’t it?
Before you get too excited, I’ll tell you right now: It’s not for everyone.
But it works for some people. Perhaps it’s something you’ve considered?
Here’s a keto-friendly recipe you can try:
Recipe (Ketogenic): Layered chocolate peppermint fat bombs
- ½ cup coconut oil, melted
- 1 tbsp granulated sweetener (xylitol or monk fruit)
- ¼ tsp peppermint extract
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder, unsweetened
Mix the melted coconut oil with the sweetener and peppermint extract.
Pour half the mixture into six cubes of an ice cube tray. This is going to be the white bottom layer. Place the tray in the fridge to harden.
Add the cocoa powder to the remaining mixture and mix. This is going to be the top brown layer. Pour it on top of the white layer which has set in the fridge.
Place the ice cube tray into the fridge until completely hardened.
Serve & enjoy!
Tip: These are (high fat) super-rich desserts. Don’t eat too many if you’re not going full keto.
To your health!
