Fat Bombs

White Chocolate and dark candy bar fat bombs

Fat bombs are very high fat and are used to increase the fat on a HFLC diet.

Here are the recipes:
Dark candy

    1/2 cup of virgin coconut oil
    1/2 cup of cocoa powder
    sweetener to taste(I used chocolate stevia drops)
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    Melt coconut oil and mix everything together.Pour into molds and freeze for setting.
White chocolate fat bombs
1/2 cup cream cheese
1/2 cup Heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup butter
sweetener(I used french vanilla stevia drops)

Melt butter,mix everything together and pour into molds.freeze until set.

Make sure to place the mold on a cookie sheet to prevent overflowing of contents when handling.

High Fat Coffee Latte

High Fat Coffee Latte

1/4 cup Heavy whipping cream
6 oz freshly brewed coffee
sweetener to taste

Blend together in a blender for a frothy latte.I heat it up in the microwave for extra piping hot.
Top with homemade sugar free whipped cream if desired.

Homemade Sugarfree Whipped Cream

I make the most awesome homemade whipped cream in my Magic Bullet .

Pour desired amount of Heavy Whipping Cream into the blender.Make sure to leave some room for expansion.Add sweetener and a drop of vanilla extract.Use the flat blade and lock the blender for about a minute or so until you hear a weird sound.That tells you it is done.

It couldn't get any easier.My kids love love love this and I am happy because I can give them a healthy treat they will actually eat.

3.Faint dizzy feeling after eating is gone.
4.Food allergies under control.
5.PMS symptoms all gone without a trace.

8.Bloated protruding tummy reduced.
9.Indigestion and heartburn cured.
10.My fungal nail infection on my toe that was there for 15 years disappeared completely without a trace.
11.I do not have to take OTC painkillers for PMS cramps.
12.My sweet cravings are under control.

14.I am satisfied with just a little amount of food.
