Another Book Review from a Favorite Author!

It’s easy to see how fat bombs have become such a favorite in the low carb community. They range from sweet to savory and can be made in huge batches to be used whenever needed. From sweet coconut cream cups to savory cheese & chive bites, there’s a fat bomb for any taste.

Recently, a fellow blogger, Martina of KetoDietApp.com reached out to us to say she’s released another book. The last time we reviewed one of her books we were totally blown away. The amount of detail, information and beauty in each recipe was enough to get us recommending it to everyone! This time around is no different. Martina’s new book, Sweet & Savory Fat Bombs, is full of delicious and creative recipes for fat bombs! Each one looks more delicious than the last and comes in many different shapes, sizes and flavors.

Fat Burning Vanilla Smoothie

The one that really caught our attention was this Fat Burning Vanilla Smoothie. We are totally addicted to our Nutribullet. It’s one of the few contraptions we actually keep on our counter for daily use. We also love the ease of making smoothies and shakes throughout the day. It’s a bit like having a dessert without the guilt!

We decided to test out Martina’s recipe to get a huge boost of fat right at the beginning of our day. Most days we either have a large breakfast or a Butter Coffee but we thought publishing this recipe would be a great help to those starting keto and/or have hectic schedules. This Fat Burning Vanilla Smoothie is an amazing busy morning solution. Just plop everything in the blender and go!

Here’s how to make it!

    Can anything be substituted for the powdered erythritol? I’m very sensitive to sweeteners and this one tastes awful to me.

      You can use stevia, if you’re alright with its flavor. Otherwise, a sugar-free vanilla syrup could work too. Torani makes some great ones!

    Have you ever made it ahead of time? Like put all the ingredients together and then blended in the AM? Sorry I’m wretched at mornings.

      Hmm, I’ve never tried that! Perhaps combine all the ingredients except the egg yolks and add those in the morning. Let us know if you end up trying it 🙂

    Just wondering why one would not use the WHOLE egg? Thanks

      The egg yolk has the fat that you want in this smoothie 🙂

    I’m a little confused on how this is fat burning?? It has a ton of fat in it and high in calories!!! Can someone explain plesse.

    How much coconut milk?

    • Vicky February 27, 2017 at 11:00 pm - Reply

      Hi Melissa, the creamed coconut milk is a substitute for mascarpone, if you don’t have it. It’d be 1/2 a cup as well 🙂

    How about flax for the eggs? If eggs are just for protein and/or binding, try subbing unflavored gelatin or collagen powder.

    • Vicky February 25, 2017 at 1:28 am - Reply

      I think that would work well 🙂 I think the eggs help give the shake a thicker texture. Flax or gelatin could do that too, though, I’ve never worked with collagen powder. Thanks for the tips!

    It looks good! This is great for those of us who have a hard time getting enough calories in our diet!

    • Vicky February 25, 2017 at 1:24 am - Reply

      Absolutely, Edith! Great for on-the-go. Can’t tell you how many shakes have saved me during early mornings 🙂

    Raw Eggs? I’m not ok with that.
    What sub can be used instead of raw eggs?

    • Martina @ KetoDiet February 21, 2017 at 6:03 pm - Reply

      It’s safe if you use pasteurized eggs. To pasteurize eggs at home, simply pour enough water in a saucepan to cover the eggs. Heat to about 140 F / 60 C. Using a spoon, slowly place the eggs into the saucepan. Keep the eggs in the water for about 3 minutes. This should be enough to pasteurize the eggs and kill any potential bacteria. Let the eggs cool down and store in the fridge for 6-8 weeks. I hope this helps 🙂

    Keto or not, thats an awful lot of calories just for a 1-serving smoothie…but it does look delicious

    • Vicky February 20, 2017 at 2:03 am - Reply

      You can reduce some ingredients or make a half serving.

      A lot use this as a meal replacement and it is perfect for Keto. I wasn’t even hungry at lunch time 6-7 hours later.
