Most days, I need a fat boost. First things that come to mind? Avocado and coconut.
Avocado is perhaps one of the healthiest low carb foods you can have. Super low in carbs, high in healthy fats, and packed full of nutrients, dare I say it is a must for a low carb high fat keto diet. It’s smooth and buttery and used as a fruit in most Southeast Asian countries. As a result, it’s incorporated in a lot of sweet desserts, ice cream, and smoothies! Coconut cream has a higher fat content and makes the shake more decadent.
This is great as a dessert after dinner, or when you want something sweet while you binge-watch your favorite show. There is some minor prep time. For best results, use a chilled bowl for mixing the chantilly coconut cream, preferably stainless steel. You can also replace another sugar substitute for allulose.
In the pictures, we’ve topped this with whipped coconut cream and some grilled coconut cubes.
