The keto diet is a very popular nutritional approach which involves manipulating macronutrients to a higher-fat, moderate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet. Benefits can be increased satiety and weight loss if well-formulated under the guidance of a nutritionist or an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach like myself with nutrition expertise. Many of my health coaching clients and groups are asking for more keto recipes and desserts are always a favorite. My mantra is that “Being Healthy Doesn’t Have to Be Hard,” so when I come up with recipes, they are super simple. This Keto Cheesecake Fat Bombs recipe isn’t for everyone since many of my clients are dairy-free, but if you tolerate dairy in moderation, these are a delicious, decadent, bite-size low-carb treat!
