As some of you may know, I write the blog articles for the gym that I work at, Free Form Fitness. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I decided to write an additional blog to my usual article on the surprising power of pumpkin. All of the research I did inspired me to try a few pumpkin recipes for myself.
I posted on my instagram this picture:
These are pumpkin cheesecake fat bombs and OH MY GOODNESS, are they ever delicious. The smell of the pumpkin spices are enough to bring back every Thanksgiving memory. The creamy-ness of the cream cheese ties the flavour of the pumpkin into this velvety, delicious, healthy, snack that I really can't get enough of.
The best part is that it was incredibly easy to make. I found this recipe on Pinterest:
I believe it made close to 24 fat bombs, but that was because I put the mixture into mii-muffin tins and froze them that way. I also did not use nearly as much sweetener as they called for. 4-6tbsp of liquid stevia would be super overpowering, so I only used about 1 tsp of sweetener instead. After about 40 minutes in the freezer this were ready to go. I really was not ready for how delicious they were.
The recipe does say to take the fat bombs out of the freezer and roll them in crushed up nuts and cinnamon. I did not have any nuts in the house, but I did try the cinnamon. It was good, but I don't think it is necessary to enjoy these.
These have been a really great way for me to snack less over the holiday weekend. Managing cravings and practicing moderation are 2 key elements to my own healthy lifestyle and that's why I just can't get enough of these fat bomb recipes.
Do something good for your body today, friends. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and are looking forward to another great week!
