Bulletproof Fat Bombs

|Bulletproof Fat Bombs

My Bulletproof Fat Bombs taste like frozen creamy mocha smoothie. Add a splash of rum or rum extract and they resemble Tiramisu. In fact, I created this recipe while I was working on a keto-friendly Tiramisu for my new cookbook. The KetoDiet Cookbook, both printed and ebook is available to preorder and will be released in autumn 2015. It includes some of the best 150 low-carb, paleo / primal recipes created exclusively for the cookbook!

If you like fat bombs, check out other similar recipes on my blog. They are great for the FAT FAST and healthy low-carb snacking. As always, fat bombs are treats, not meal replacements - you should eat them in moderation, 1-2 pieces at a time.

Ingredients (makes 20 servings):

Instructions

  1. Place the softened creamed coconut milk (or mascarpone cheese), butter or coconut oil, MCT oil and cocoa powder. |Bulletproof Fat Bombs
  2. Add powdered Erythritol and stevia into a blender and pulse until smooth. I'm using my Kenwood mixer with a blender attachment. |Bulletproof Fat Bombs
  3. Pour in the prepared coffee (room temperature or lukewarm, not hot) and pulse again until smooth. Pour into the into the ice-cream maker (I use Cuisinart) and process according to the manufacturer's instructions. It may take anything between 30-60 minutes depending on your ice-cream maker. Using an ice-cream maker makes the texture smoother & creamy and also allows me to form the "bomb" shapes.
    *Tips when you don't have an ice-cream maker: Pour the mixture directly into an ice tray or small muffin tin. You should be able to fit ~ 2 tablespoons per fat bomb or make smaller fat bombs. You can also use 1-2 teaspoons instant coffee powder instead of ½ cup of coffee. The mixture will be thicker and you won't need an ice-cream maker.* |Bulletproof Fat Bombs
  4. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the ice-cream into ice tray (I used this Ball Shaped Lollypop Tray) which is great for making fat bomb shapes. I used the same one in my Strawberry Cheesecake Fat Bombs. |Bulletproof Fat Bombs
  5. Place in the freezer for 2-3 hours or until firm. |Bulletproof Fat Bombs Enjoy! |Bulletproof Fat Bombs

If all I have is the powdered swerve how much of that should I use instead of adding the 10 or 15 Stevia drops. Otherwise how much altogether should I use in this recipe if all I have is the powdered swerve thank you so much

Reply

Hi Valorie, this depends on your palate. I'd start with just the 1/4 cup Erythritol or Swerve and add 1-3 more tablespoons if needed. Also, I use Erythritol which not as sweet as Swerve, so 1/4 cup Swerve may be enough.

what using tea instead of coffee... coffee my stomach just can't stand coffee.

Reply

Yes, you can use tea instead... Ideally black but it depends on your palate - some people use herbal tea to make BPC Smile

I tried these and they turned out great. They must be kept in the freezer since they will melt in the fridge. I first used ice trays to make them, but those pieces were too big. I let them melt down enough to put into smaller molds and now they're the perfect bite size pieces. Taste great and melts in your mouth!

Reply

Awesome, I'm glad you liked them! Smile

How important is it to add ANY of the "sweeteners"?  So many recipes use stevia or other suitable sweetener... I don't like sweets ..I drink black coffee, eat 90% chocolate.. Can I just leave it out?
Thank you!

Reply

Of course! I actually prefer this recipe without sweeteners because I never put them in my coffee Smile

Reply

I see where stevia has been left out, but is it possible to only use 1/4 C unfiltered organic honey or maple syrup and add no other sweeteners. I only use those and sometimes coconut sugar due to autoimmune issues.

Reply

Hi Jennifer, absolutely - if you can tolerate more carbs, you can use these paleo-friendly options!

Reply

These look delicious - I've been looking for a low carb snack to take to work! Smile

Reply

I'm not sure these are suitable for work - they will melt on the way there Smile You can try any of these that don't require freezing: ketodietapp.com/.../tagFatBombs&title=Fat%20Bombs

Reply

I am wondering if you can recommend something other than liquid Stevia. I am allergic to Stevia.

Reply

Hi Melanie, you can skip the stevia or add more Erythritol instead (to taste).

Reply

Hi Martina! I love this idea & so want to make these turn out right.... but something seems very wrong. I have all ingredients mixed together ready to go in the ice cream maker & all I have is a big blob of brown cottage cheese. Yours looked like a liguid. I reread the recipe several times & I did use the marscapone cheese. HELP! What have I done wrong? The flavor tastes great but the consistency seems way off. Thanks so much.

Reply

I'm sorry about that Jessica, it looks like it has curdled. I'm not sure but it must be the temperature of the ingredients. Does it curdle before or after adding the coffee? And sorry about the late reply!

Reply

I just tried this today, and it is soooooooo yummy!!!

Reply

Thank you, I'm glad you liked it!

Reply

I am addicted to this! It's so hard to eat only one...

Reply

I'd say that two-three are ok Wink

Reply

then what do you do with the bombs, how would i use this in my ketopia diet? ty new to all this

Reply

Hi Tammy, here are the reasons for including fat bombs: ketodietapp.com/.../Bacon-Guacamole-Fat-Bombs Hope this helps! Smile

I made these last night, and they turned out pretty good. I didn't have any eryth on hand so I used all Stevia. Kinda bitter but that's my fault. The texture was great. I used Starbucks instant coffee- without an ice cream maker. I also used my daughter's fish shaped ice cube trays. Made for a funny presentation. I can't wait to do it "right' next time. I have no doubt the results will be fantastic.

Reply

I have to admit that I actually like them sweetener-free but that may be just me because I don't use any sweeteners in my coffee. Hope you like the next batch! Smile

Reply

I made these and the flavor is excellent. I used the mascarpone/butter/coconut oil method and did not add the Stevia drops. I used a regular blender and when I mixed everything it made the most wonderful mousse which would make a great dessert by itself! I didn't need the ice cream maker at all even though I have one. Delicious!

Reply

Awesome! Glad you liked them! Smile

Reply

You said you didn't use the Stevia drops but did you still sweeten with the ¼ cup Erythritol or Swerve? Thank you

Reply

So I froze my coffee into ice cubes and added to my Vitamix. It made a nice  thick creamy mixture that I could spoon into a mini muffin pan. My hubby was eating straight out of the blender jar. I'm looking forward to trying them when they freeze.

Reply

Great idea to use frozen coffee cubes! Smile

Reply

These are amazing!  Thank you for sharing this recipe. I used a mini silicone tray (got 24 pieces), popped them out and into a freezer bag! Perfect size treat.

Reply

Glad you liked them Michelle! Smile

Hi, Martina! I've been looking for coffee fat bombs for ages and these look beautiful! I usually take my coffee without sweetener, but I do want to lightly sweeten these. However, all I have is liquid Stevia drops. Could I simply use the 10-15 drops and avoid the powdered sweetener altogether? Would the structure hold up? Thanks!

Reply

Hi Lani, thank you! Yes, you can use just stevia. Try 10-15 drops and add more if needed. The structure will not be affected.

Reply

i don't understand the purpose of the ice cream maker.  If you don't need it, why is it in the recipe?  What does the ice cream maker do different than if you don't use it? Thanks, Kim

Reply

Hi Kim, the reason I used an ice-cream maker it to be able to create the "bomb" shapes and it also makes the ice-cream smooth. But no, yu don't need to use it. I'll add some more tips in the post:
- using popsicle molds if you don't want to use an ice-cream maker
- or coffee powder instead of 1/2 cup coffee so that the mixture is thicker and easier to form into "bombs"

Reply

Do you know anything about great values stevia? Is it healthy or should I use another brand?

Reply

Hi Jinxx, this product looks fine to me - erythritol, stevia extract and natural flavours (not sure what "natural flavours" are though). For more, have a look at this post: ketodietapp.com/.../Top-10-Natural-Low-carb-Sweeteners.

Cheese and rum are not bulletproof. Nice recipe though.

Reply

Thanks! I make mine with rum extract and coconut milk Smile

Reply

I am thinking mini muffin tins with silicone liners would be perfect for me to use as I dont have an ice cream maker either. Great recipe, I am going to make them now.

Reply

Thanks! Hope you like them Smile

Reply

WOW! I usually do not like anything that is a sugar substitute (even stevia) But these are outstanding! THanks So Much!!

Reply

Thanks Becky! If you don't mind sugar-free coffee, you can avoid using the sweeteners Smile

Reply

How do you make your own powdered erythritol.  Waaah, I just dumped this morning's cold coffee before I sat down to check the blog.
Oh well, tomorrow.
I like this diet!

Reply

Hi K, thanks! Smile I powder mine in food processor with a chopping blade (either Bamix or Kenwood). I prefer using my Bamix immersion blender (with the dry mill) because it's easier to clean: www.amazon.com/.../ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl (affiliate link)

Reply

I use coffee grinder to powder swerve.

Reply

What if you can't find stevia extract?

Reply

Hi Tina, then use just powdered Erythritol / Swerve Smile

Reply

i made my own powdered Erythritol by using my Krups nut/bean grinder. Came out perfect! Waiting for my coffee to cool so I can finish making these fat bombs. I can hardly wIt! Thank you for the recipe!

Reply

Thank you Carolyn! I also make my own powdered Erythritol Smile Hope you like these fat bombs!

Reply

these look delish!!! I don't have a ice-cream maker though, would just freezing the mix before churning work or maybe whipping in in a mixer??

Reply

Hi Nikki, yes you can make them without an ice-cream maker - see my comment above Smile

Reply

Is there another way to make these without an ice cream maker.

Reply

Hi Angie, yes, you can pour it directly into the ice tray. You'll have to use a larger ice tray to fit ~ 2 tablespoons or make smaller fat bombs.

Reply

Wow these sound fantastic!!  Q: is there a way I can print this up tho? Thanks!!!

Reply

Thank you! I don't have a "print recipe" option yet but it will soon be part of the new look of my blog, stay tuned Wink

Reply

You can highlight it and right click print selection and u can print it that way.

Reply

Update: printing is available! Smile

Reply

You can also put it into a muffin tin, muffin paper lined to freeze.  Other websites do that.  Works fine.

Reply

Yes, muffin cups work too. I would still use silicone than paper cups because they get wet and soggy.
