So many people know about MCT but don’t really understand what it does for our bodies, so allow me to explain a little before we go back to the recipe… MCT is a medium chain triglyceride (a form of a saturated fatty acid) that travels to the liver and is less likely to turn to body fat because they are efficiently turned into energy for the body. MCT oil has become one of my favorite parts of a ketogenic diet because of its fat-burning qualities and it’s so easily digested. That’s how I make salad dressings and I drink my morning coffee—with a spoonful of creamy MCT oil.
MCT has been shown to have many health benefits. It can play a key role in heart and brain health, as well as promote weight loss and improve exercise performance. Always consume a high-quality and organic and whole food MCT oil. An MCT oil grown and processed conventionally (which is about 80 percent of them) could have traces of toxins, mold, or heavy metals due to chemical extraction or lack of safety testing. Find out where your MCT oil is sourced, manufactured, and how it is processed. You want to look for pure, cold-pressed, and non-GMO coconut-based oil that is extracted and purified with enzymes, not harsh chemicals. Mix it into smoothies, shakes, sauces, teas, or bulletproof coffee for quick, reliable source of energy. Or drop it into a delicious, friendly, fat-bomb for a less intense, longer duration spike in ketone production, which is one of the benefits of MCT oil.
I love the effect it has had to help keep my blood sugar levels even. So there you go, you can see why I’m crazy about it. 🙂
The reason I love this recipe so much is because it is the ultimate healthy-fat Keto-snack. This also tastes REALLY good and is so satiating that one of these little fat balls will keep you satisfied and energized for hours. They contain so many nutritious ingredients such as, my favorite (as I’m sure you’ve seen!), creamy MCT, coconut oil, coconut butter, (as I said – FAT BOMB!), vanilla extract, monk fruit (my personal choice for sweetener but you can choose whatever you prefer), and delicious organic strawberries. To top it off, these little treats are rolled in fresh coconut flakes and refrigerated and can then be eaten whenever you want.
These are great meal “inbetweeners” and the ideal little foods to fight of cravings and hunger, giving you a much needed energy boost and so many wonderful health benefits simultaneously. The icing on the cake here is that these little beauties only take minutes to make (not counting the refrigeration time). Just throw in the ingredients into the food processor or blender if that’s easier, bland until smooth and voila! Done.
