From the title you may already know where am I going with this, or maybe, I wish I was! To the beach because these fat bombs have all the tropical vibes and "Take me to the Beach!" all over them!
For any papaya lovers out there! Or you want to switch up the game of the typical papaya game. But first, here's a little story about me and my journey of liking papaya.
I'm a nutritionist now and I prioritize a healthier lifestyle now but growing up I wasn't friends with health foods, I repelled any fruit, veggie. Instead I lived from... processed foods. Okay, but later, one of my aunts in Mexico City, who is a great cook and works with vegetable and fruit suppliers game me a papaya smoothie. And that's when everything changed.
I think that for a lot of us papaya is a food that whether you love or hate. Don't you think? Or at least you have to give it a go in different ways in order to find that sweet spot.
These fat bombs remind me of that amazing papaya smoothie.. but better and creamier! We are using some goods to make these keto friendly!
Is papaya keto?
I don't think that foods need to be restricted if there's no health condition. Are you allergic to papaya? Or following an AIP diet? But fun fact! Papaya are AIP friendly!
100 grams of papaya has 10 grams of carbs and 1.7 grams of fiber. They can be included. But remember that the importance here is to keep that state of ketosis and this could be different for everyone. Maybe it works by keeping carbs below 30g or even 50g. It all depends on the metabolic state.

Okay, so back to these fat bombs. We are using simple ingredients and nutrient dense ingredients. Some of the ones we are using are: coconut cream, pili nuts, papaya, kiwi for topping and granulated monk fruit. Optional for for that extra gut health, collagen!
Let's start with the main ingredient, PAPAYA! This is a very tropical fruit very common in Mexico, it's basically a staple here and people can enjoy them all year long since the demand is pretty high.
Papayas are a great source of vitamin C, B and A. A very pronounced characteristic is that it has proteolytic enzymes such as papain and chymopapain, these have an antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial properties.
Kiwis are also a source vitamin C and more proteolitic enzymes, in this case we've got actinidin! Proteolitic enzymes work by breaking down proteins for their digestion!
So these are a great recipe to save for flu season! Gotta get that extra boost of immune system love! And besides having all the amazing benefits from papaya and kiwi we are also using collagen! Did you know that around 70% of our immune system is considered to be in our guts? So incorporating bone broth and collagen is something I encourage to everyone!
Definitely save this recipe for later. This is such a great and tasty way to boost out immune system in such an easy and convenient way since these fat bombs are also NO BAKE and BLENDER recipe. Yes, mess free and they are also freezer friendly.
As sweetener we are using granulated monk fruit, my staple on every sweet recipe! And also keto, paleo and gluten free. Use code PURELYHL for discount!
And for the other ingredients we are using let's talk Pili Nuts! These are actually AIP friendly according to The Paleo Mom on this blogpost. They are so silky and buttery! The ones I use are from Pili Hunters but if you don't find any you can also use cashews!
For that extra dose of healthy fats and nutrients, we are using coconut cream. And guys, it makes it taste and have the consistency of an ice cream! Type of a sorbet really, soft and creamy heaven!
