Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Strawberry Coconut Fat Bombs

_DSC7926

Since being diagnosed with SIBO I’ve had to go on a low-carb diet to try and starve the little buggers.  This means that my body has switched over into Ketosis burning fat for energy instead of carbohydrates.  I actually like it because it’s easier for me to not feel hungry, whereas in the past I was pretty much constantly snacking.
Fat is not your enemy.  If it is high-quality then it is good for you!  Someone at work saw me eating these and when I told her they were fat bombs she looked at me like I was nuts!  “Well you can afford to eat like that because you’re skinny,” she said.  But a lot of people go on a ketogenic diet to lose weight!
I love eating these softened to room temperature.  It’s a lot like ice cream!

Directions

Put the jar of coconut butter in a small pan with water and turn on medium-low to soften.

Wash and cut the tops off the strawberries and put in a blender or food processor with the rest of the ingredients.

When the coconut butter is soft and easy to scoop, add to the rest of the ingredients and puree until smooth.

Distribute puree into silicone molds and put in the freezer for about half an hour.
