Love red velvet cake? 🙋
These red velvet fat bombs are the perfect keto dessert recipe guaranteed to conquer that sweet tooth. This beautiful concoction takes less than 20 minutes to prep – and at just 100 calories and 2 net carbs, it’s the perfect after-dinner dessert without the guilt!
So what’s the secret ingredient?
BEETS! Adding the beets not only brings out that natural red velvet color we all love, but did you know that beets help fight inflammation, help lower blood pressure, and are high in fiber? So really this is a win-win for you and your body.
- If you have a Trader Joe’s, pick up the frozen beet chunks to save time. If you don’t, no worries. Just boil one beet until soft and then add half to your food processor.
- Don’t want to mess with beets? Just sub in some red food coloring.
- Bring cream cheese and butter to room temperature to avoid clumps when mixing. You’ll get the smooth, creamy texture you’re looking for.
- Store in a sealed container in your freezer or fridge for up to 5 days.
