  • Fat Bombs

    Anyone make "fat-bomb" shakes? I have read on various blogs where people mix up super high fat content shakes for breakfast or whatever. I normally IF during the week and skip breakfast but on the weekend these things hit the spot. 6oz of heavy cream, a couple TBLs of coconut oil, almond milk, frozen strawberries, greek yogurt and stevia.

    I basically copied/modified this from Peter Attia's site and tried it out. Pretty damn satiating...

    Sounds incredibly unhealthy. That is no way I would want to start my day.

      Unhealthy how? It is a calorie bomb sure, but it contains potent doses of healthy fats that we, as primalites, all know are great for you.

      And that much fat should provide enough energy to keep you going for HOURS if not even the whole day.

          Yeah, you should stick with 3oz of Special K and fresh berries with non-fat milk

            Ha ha ha!

            I love a good fatty smoothie. It is high calorie but that is ok. It keeps me full until lunch. Sometimes I will have one of these for dessert, I usually will fast the next morning because I don't feel hungry still.

            Heavy cream, coconut milk or raw milk
            Almond butter
            1 frozen banana (carby but yum)
            1 square super dark chocolate
            a spoon of coconut oil (sometimes I forget this)
            a splash of vanilla and a sprinkle of stevia

              Here's a smoothie I've done before:

              Two tablespoons of macadamia nut butter (sometimes three if I want more flavor)
              Two tablespoons of coconut oil
              Six to eight ounces of heavy cream or coconut milk
              Two to four tablespoons of Greek yoghurt (depending on how thick you want it)
              One square of baking chocolate or three tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
              Stevia to taste

                For me I would probably skip the Stevia but I don't have a super sweet tooth. I could see using this as a quick, on the fly breakfast but I would miss my cheese and veg omelet and bacon in the morning cooked in butter or coconut oil...keeps you going all day.

                  You really do seem all over the place took a 2 second look at your blog where you say "I recently have been getting into “primal eating” but not 100% committed", considering some of your posts here I woudl say you eat much more of a SAD diet.

                    I've never made a fat bomb shake, but I might now! Sometimes I make this amazing heritage bacon, and once I got a pork belly... mmm, now that was a fat bomb. I still have the lard from it.

                      Thanks for this thread! I have been making a drink that consists of cold brewed raspberry & black tea (of green or white tea), half full fat coconut milk, and stevia. I should add some more ingredients to create a "fat bomb".

                        For a weekend brunch that holds me til dinner, I am a new fan of Son of Grok's flan http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread67001.html . It's also a fat bomb and I think could be modified to include other fruits or to skip the fruit altogether. It also doesn't require any sweetener, IMO.

                            I love me some fat bombs.

                            I just made a dessert that's going on my blog. It involves copious amounts of coconut milk, unsweetened chocolate, raw cacao, and nut butter, if you choose. Xylitol for sweetness.

                            I'm calling it "chocolate pots". It's AMAZEBALLS.

                              Oooh, just had an idea...

                              Two cups of a "chocolaty" black tea such as Keemun Hao Ya A, Golden Monkey, or Yunnan Golden Tips (brew with water, add while still hot)
                              Two tablespoons coconut oil
                              One square unsweetened bakers chocolate
                              Six to eight ounces of coconut milk or heavy cream
                              Stevia if desired

                              Blend.
