    What is a fat bomb?

    Fat bombs are low carb, keto friendly desserts, which don’t even require baking! They are usually held together by refrigerating or even by freezing sometimes. They are typically made with ingredients which are high in fat such as nut butters, coconut oil, cream cheese or avocado. Since fat bombs, as the name suggests are higher in fat, they make you feel more satisfied than other treats.

    Fat bombs can even be taken as a snack and they will easily hold you over until dinner time. Because they are low in sugar some even consider them to be healthy if taken in small amounts. The great thing about fat bombs is that you can make them in so many different flavors, meaning you’ll never get bored of having them as a treat! The name might not be so appealing, but they sure are tasty!

    What is Mexican hot chocolate?

    Mexican hot chocolate is less refined and less sweet than regular hot chocolate. It is an unsweetened drink which was used for rituals and medicinal purposes in older times. The taste of Mexican hot chocolate is richer, creamier and has a more pronounced taste than your usual hot chocolate. Flavors such as cinnamon and chili or cayenne powder are typically added to it to give it a slight kick and to add even more flavor.
