What ingredients do you need to make Keto Lemon Fat Bombs?
- Cream cheese – I use cream cheese in almost all of my Keto fat bomb recipes. These can basically be called lemon cream cheese fat bombs.
- Keto sweetener – preferably powdered like Swerve. Non powdered erythritol sweetener might not dissolve in the batter and the keto lemon cheesecake fat bombs might not have a creamy and homogenous texture. You are going to most likely feel the granules of the sweetener when you bite into a fat bomb.
- Coconut butter – I’m a huge fan of this ingredient, but not many stores carry it at all times. I get mine at Costco. If you don’t have any coconut butter and don’t want to purchase it, you can substitute regular unsalted butter. Make sure it is softened.
- Coconut oil – it adds extra fat to the recipe
- Lemon juice I used freshly squeezed in this recipe for lemon fat bombs.
- Lemon zest – a necessary ingredient to enhance the citrusy flavor in these lemon zest fat bombs
Difference between coconut oil and coconut butter:
Coconut oil is the oil that’s been extracted from the coconut meat, but coconut butter is made from coconut flesh that’s been ground into a spreadable paste. Coconut butter still gets to keep all the fat, fiber, and nutrients from the coconut. It has intense coconut flavor and is slightly sweet.
I can eat coconut butter by the spoon full.
Using coconut butter in keto fat bombs
I’m a huge fat of coconut butter and use it in smoothies and Keto baked goods all the time. I find it to add a great flavor and help with the creaminess in this lemon fat bombs recipe.
How to make low-carb lemon fat bombs? What tools do you need?
These lemon cheesecake fat bombs are very easy to make. I recommend that you use an electric mixer to mix the ingredients (or a food processor).
You’ll also need a candy mold (a silicone or rubber one). I used a rubber ice cube mold from Ikea.
I also recommend that you fill a piping bag (or zip lock bag) with the batter, cut a tiny tip and fill the mold. This way you get the least amount of air in the fat bombs.
- In a bowl combine the softened cream cheese, sweetener and coconut butter. Beat on medium speed with an electric mixer until combined.
- Add the melted coconut oil, lemon zest and lemon juice.
- Beat until smooth on medium speed.
- Fill a piping bag with the mixture.
- Fill a silicone mold with the batter and freeze for 1 hour or until set.
- Remove from the mold and place in a zip lock bag.
- These lemon cheesecake fat bombs should be kept in the freezer.
