Are you following a low carb or keto diet and you need tasty snack to keep you going throughout the day? Then you’ll love these Low Carb Chai Tea Latte Fat Bombs.
It taste so delicious and the warming spices totally hits my happy spot. It’s made with chai spices (think cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves!), cream cheese and heavy whip cream.
Why Fat Bombs?
When dieting, they’re great for boosting your energy, satisfying your cravings, a great source of healthy fats (perfect for those on a keto diet) and it’s the perfect on-the-go snack.
What I love about these Low Carb Chai Tea Latte Fat Bombs is that it’s so easy to make and just make the perfect afternoon treat that will hold you over until dinner. It would also taste great in a cup of coffee for a creamy latte in the morning. I just add both to a blender until the consistency is creamy.
