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.

While my rustic meringue baskets weren’t snow-white like the store-bought versions my guests received, they were still pretty damn tasty and hit the sweet spot. If you prefer to make a mess of this (I mean, to literally make a Berry Mess), simply use the Mini Meringues recipe and mix it all together just before serving… (as opposed to making a pretentious, deconstructed version like I have done here by piping them into baskets…)
