For those of you unfamiliar with the ketogenic diet, you can watch the “mini-course”, but basically, it’s a diet in which you eat the bulk of your calories in fat, HOPEFULLY…HEALTHY FATS, such as avocado, coconut oil, nuts, seeds, salmon, grass-fed butter/ghee, etc. The macronutrient ratio for a typical keto dieter is 70% fat, 25% protein and 5% carbs – theoretically, SHOULD be in the form of vegetables. A HEALTHY, clean eating keto diet would look like this:

Many people struggle to reach that “70%” mark, for fat intake. One way people boost their fat intake is through “fat bombs”, which are very small, typically bite size snacks which are very high in fat. They give dieters a boost of energy and help them reach their fat intake for the day.

Many fat bombs aren’t so healthy, SO…This week, I’ve scoured youtube and the internet for healthy versions of this keto classic snack.


Today’s recipe is: Fat Bomb Smoothies

Fat Bomb Smoothie

  • Servings: 1
  • Difficulty: super easy
  • Print

Throw the ingredients in a blender, it's as simple as that...and oh so tasty!

Ingredients

  • Ice
  • Liquid – use Almond Milk, Coconut Milk, Heavy Cream
  • Avocado
  • Plain Greek Yogurt
  • MCT Oil
  • Liquid Stevia
  • Spinach – LOTS of it!
  • Protein Powder
  • Berries

Directions

  1. Throw everything in the blender and blend. Experiment with amounts, ingredients. Make it your own.

Tips from the Keto Dad: 

  • Keep the amount of berries small – like less than 1/4 cup
  • Eliminate the Greek Yogurt  (if you want less carbs)- even the best still have carbs you may want to avoid
  • If you’re getting too much fat, use almond milk instead of heavy cream – this can also make it dairy free!
  • More spinach!  You should be getting the majority of your carbs from veggies!

Welcome to The Purple Almond Wellness I’m Tamara Hoerner, MHNE, wellness educator and founder of Purple Almond Wellness. I work with middle-age individuals to help support brain health and develop whole body wellness, in order to improve the quality of their mid-life years. Heart and Alzheimer’s diseases run in my family and I struggled with weight loss, so I strive to help others with similar conditions. Using only nutrition, I rid my body of seasonal allergies, Psoriatic Arthritis and migraines, as well as cured my insomnia. I know what it takes to use food as medicine, especially in middle age. As a wellness educator and Summa Cum Laude graduate of Hawthorn University, I develop personalized nutrition plans and wellness education sessions, to help clients. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

I'd love to know what you think!
