Amazing Keto Fat Bomb Smoothie Recipes

Putting your body in the state of ketosis is what the ketogenic diet aims to do. This metabolic state occurs when the body uses ketone bodies in the blood, as opposed to glucose, for energy. In a nutshell, you get your body to burn fat, which has proven to be an efficient way to lose weight.

 

Because the basic keto diet requires the individual to make 70% of his/her diet consist of healthy fats, there are recipes known as fat bombs. As the name suggests, fat bombs are recipes that contain high amounts of healthy fats. They can be solid food or liquid recipes like the smoothies in this article.

 

Fat bomb smoothies are great because they require very little preparation. They are also easily transported, so you could bring a fat bomb smoothie in a cooler if you wanted a fat boost after exercising. From a metabolic standpoint, fat bomb smoothies fill you up and refuel the body. They help provide sustained energy and help the body recover after a hard workout. If you are on the keto diet, try these smoothies and let us know if you like them.

 

For all the smoothies, place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until you get a smooth consistency. You can enjoy the smoothies right away or save them for post-workout fuel.
