Default Fat Bomb Recipe

I wanted a painless way to get more fat into my diet, so I came up with this recipe. Although it has some of the same ingredients as cheesecake, it doesn't taste like cheesecake. Because of the coconut oil, butter and cream cheese, it stiffens up quite a bit in the fridge like the coconut oil fudge does, but it doesn't taste like candy. All I know is it tastes lemony and good. DH thinks it's great, he loves anything lemon. There are a whopping 63.15 grams of fat in the whole thing (hope I did the math right), so you can figure out how much of it you want to eat to get the fat you need. If that is too much fat for you, you can cut out the coconut oil or the butter or use 1 tablespoon of each instead of 2.

Change it up any way you want. You can replace the lemon juice with lime, syrup, heavy cream or any liquid. You can also try different flavors of extract and add nuts, chocolate chips, coconut, etc. The recipe makes a little over 1/2 cup.

Fat Bomb

1 ounce cream cheese, room temp.
2 tablespoons butter, room temp.
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon sour cream
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon lemon extract
sweetener to taste

Stir together the cream cheese and butter. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until smooth. Refrigerate until it stiffens up. If you are the impatient type, freeze for 20 minutes before eating.

Fat = 63.13 g
Protein = 2.84 g
Total Carbs = 1.58 g

Sounds dangerous. I would like to be on the demolition squad to disable this bomb.

I think you've invented an alternate to our coconut oil chocolate fudge. This buttery/lemony little confection sounds splendid - I'll try it!

After I made this, ate half of it then figured out how much fat is in it, I was in shock. 63.15 grams of fat, amazing. If I used a couple tablespoons of this and that and ended up with that many fat grams, it makes me wonder how many grams are in the cheesecake and coconut oil fudge I have been eating. (I don't want to know.)

If I ever say again that I am worried about not getting enough fat, somebody slap me.

No more fat bombs for me.

Then make them for me, please. Fat is good. The fats that you used are anyway. My morning coffee is 600-700 calories from fats.

So I guess it isn't too much fat after all. Good because I sure don't want to give up cheesecake.

Yum! This is a nice alternative to the Fat Bomb I posted in the recipe section here. That one is peanut or almond butter, cocoa, this is a nice variation.

I like to spoon my CO fudge and fat bombs into decorative ice cube trays. It makes calculating the nutrition per piece easier

Why is everyone trying to eat so much fat? Especially if overweight in the first place? I thought fats weren't good for you, and have been trying to get my son to cut back on them. He is always hungry, and thinking about his next meal. He lives alone and has Sundays with me. I never know what to feed him.
ps- He doesn't get enough exercise, so that doesn't help.

We eat good fats because they are healthy, and we eat very few carbs. Reducing carbs means we are removing a source of energy, and by increasing fats, we replace that energy source with something that does not raise our blood sugar levels. Dietary fat does not make us fat - carbs make us fat. Start increasing the good fats in your son's diet - and your own, if you're managing diabetes well - and he won't be hungry all the time. Just make sure to reduce carbs as well. Take a look at LCHF for beginners for some excellent information on making this happen.

Thank you Shanny. Reducing carbs is the big concern, I guess. I will check the LCHF site you mentioned. I have a lot to learn.
