Hearts, kisses, and chocolate! The avocado fat-bomb wins for a Valentine's treat that is vegan and keto friendly! You’re welcome!
I absolutely love the holiday season. It’s always a time to get creative in the kitchen and come up with new recipes for loved ones and friends. Why not make something that is sweet but also extremely healthy. What better way to show the ones you love that you love them than with a dessert that’s actually good for their health?
With the emergence of high-fat diets such as keto and paleo, there has been an influx of “fat bombs” on the market. Many people are experimenting with ditching the carbohydrates and replacing them with healthy fats such as avocado, nuts, seeds, and healthy oils. The reasoning is that fats keep you satiated longer than carbohydrates. Healthy fats will not make you gain weight, but eating heavily saturated fats such as fried foods and ice cream will. Healthy fats can give you that boost of energy needed to sustain you through the day.
These avocado fat-bombs are very simple to make. They take all of 20 minutes from start to finish without having to bake them. All you need to do is pop them in the fridge, and you are all set. This recipe is gluten free, low carb, guilt-free, and vegan. These avocado fat-bombs are oh so yummy!
The key to getting the exterior of these avocado fat-bombs are the molds. I bought a half-dome chocolate mold which I found at a bulk food store. They are made of silicone so it’s easy to pop the chocolates in and out. These are available in various shapes and sizes so if you don't love a half dome, you can opt for a square or a heart! Make sure to spray the mold with coconut oil before pouring the first layer of chocolate in, just to ensure it doesn't stick.
