If you've never tried Blackberry Mascarpone Fat Bombs you're in for a treat! These fat bombs are delicious and easy to prepare so get ready to delight your taste buds!
I am so stinkin' excited that we are getting so close to the holidays! When I think about the holidays, the first thing I think of is family and the second is FOOD! "Food, glorious food". Now don't take this the wrong way but the food is super important during the holidays. Every culture has some food/meal and holiday ritual. Of course we as a nation struggle with our addiction and relationship to food so I never want to glorify food in an unhealthy way, but I do believe that food is an important part of our cultures and families.
My goal has always been to take the meals and foods we love and make them love us back. We shouldn't be fighting with our food (obesity, heart attacks, diabetes) we should be embracing the art of restoring food's ultimate purpose; which is to fuel our bodies and make us a little happy (but only on the holidays). 😉 I kid, I kid.
You see this is my struggle. Balancing the love and respect I have for food with the feelings I experience when I eat delicious meals. When we clean up our kitchens and start shopping smart, I believe the two balance themselves out.
That's the most surprising thing about living the Keto lifestyle. You aren't hungry anymore. Sure you may have cravings from time to time but you should really only be eating when you're hungry at this point (unless of course you just started). I believe that when we provide the proper fuel for these vessels they will begin to cut you some slack in the cravings area.
So that's how I get waaaaaayyyyy off track. I forgot the whole reason I started writing this post, and that was so I can share my love of all things mascarpone, okay well actually just my latest mascarpone recipe but you know what I mean. Can you see how my mind works? I was going to share a recipe that uses mascarpone, which made me think of the holidays, which made me think of unhealthy relationships to food.
If you give a blogger mascarpone...

Here are a few tips when it comes to making fat bombs:
Only you know your macros. If a one serving of a fat bomb is too much for you cut it in half or make double, the servings (So instead of making 9 fat bombs you would make 18 using the same amount of ingredients). It's easier to plan ahead, so you don't sabotage yourself.
Use measuring spoons to dish out anything you make. This helps keep everything equal. When you dish your fat bomb mix into the silicone baking cups, you want to ensure each one has exactly the same amount in it. When you are tracking your daily fat intake, you need to know exactly what you're getting.
I use different ingredients than you. Even though I have the nutrition facts listed for you, you should still add a new recipe into MyFitnessPal every time you make something. It's so straightforward. All you have to do is go to Add Recipe - Then enter the link from the blog post you are copying. It will show my ingredients, and you can then customize each one based on the brands you used to duplicate the recipe. This is also great for those times you decide to make changes to a recipe.
