Creamy, Sweet Keto Fat Pots

Keto Cream Bombs

Super simple little cream ‘fat pots’, which are topped with tart raspberries to cut through the rich creaminess. The recipe makes 4 small pots, and can be done in ramekins, but I used little plastic pots which I found on amazon– (ignore the product description that says they are disposable – I wash and re-use them.) Simply wrap in clingfilm and take these babies to work with you!

Funnyman loves his after-dinner treats so much (my Blueberry Lollies and Keto Brownies are his favourite), but I am getting bored churning them out since we started keto a few months ago, so I am now on a mission to shake things up and experiment with different flavours. These lollies were made using raspberries and rose water and I added a drop or two of pink food colouring to make them pretty! Fragrant and creamy with little tart raspberry bits throughout, you should definitely give these a try!

Bribing Funnyman with my brownies is a nifty way to get him to do stuff around the house. I learnt this in wife-training school. He loves these keto brownies. They are the perfect size to hit the sweet spot and they make great fat bombs. I don’t have a sweet tooth at all, so making a batch of these along with a batch of Keto Blueberry Lollies for him once a week is my way of showing him how much I appreciate him going on this Keto journey with me. For this recipe, I did not use confectioners’ Erythritol like I do for all my other recipes, I used granulated. It’s a good idea to have a bag of each on hand. The brownies store well in the fridge (although they would disappear in a day if I did that), so I freeze them individually after cooling and slicing. We always have double cream in the house, so he often reheats them slightly after they have defrosted (2-3 hours in the fridge to defrost) and then he pours a little cream over them. Happy Husband = Happy Wifey…

Funnyman wasn’t entirely convinced when I broached the subject of doing keto with me a few months ago. He has a massive sweet tooth and the thought of giving up his after-dinner treats didn’t sit well with him. A client of mine in the US suggested I try Swerve® (a brand that makes confectioner’s / powdered Erythritol) as a sugar replacement in my cooking and baking and I have never looked back. After Funnyman watched the documentary MAGIC PILL, he was amped to start. These lollies were actually the first thing I made him. Of course, I then had to become a lolly-making machine because he happily enjoys one of these most nights. He is down almost 10kg (22lb) now and counting…
