Juice Plus+ Mocha Fat Bombs!

Is Juice Plus+ Complete keto-friendly? Well... kind of. 😁


Complete has 10g net carbs per serving. If you're on a keto plan that has you staying below 20g per day, a big ol' Juice Plus smoothie might not be your best friend. But if you are following a more liberal plan with a higher carb allowance (such as this plant-heavy keto program), you can reap the benefits of Complete shakes without hesitation. Each full serving of Complete contains 13g of plant based protein and 8g of fiber. Getting enough fiber on a keto diet can be difficult so every little bit helps!

Using it in recipes is a great way to incorporate it into your diet without going overboard. I like to add a tablespoon to my bulletproof coffee for a hint of sweetness and cocoa flavor. I add a little Complete whenever I have some wiggle room in my carb budget. It's delicious, healthy, and really curbs a sweet tooth! It complements a keto diet in that they both go a long way to reduce cravings, especially for carb-heavy foods, including sweets.

So here is a great little low carb treat to keep you on track!


I use CarbManager as my food journal. You can find me there as juneyjo75. It's a great resource to log all your macros and calories with graphics that help you stay on track. It helped me figure out the nutritional info in these little puppies. 👍

Healthy Chocolate Walnut Clusters

Walnut Clusters

Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup light coconut milk (canned, room temp)
  • 1/2 cup cacao
  • 2 tbsp. coconut sugar
  • 1/8 tsp almond extract
  • walnuts (or other nuts, raisins, etc.)


Instructions

Melt coconut oil in a large microwave safe measuring cup or bowl.
Mix in coconut sugar, almond extract, and cacao until well blended.
Mix in coconut milk and whisk until creamy.
Chocolate should be thick but pourable.

If you're using a mold, place walnuts in the cups and pour chocolate over just to cover them. Pat down or mix each cluster gently.

If not using a mold, line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper. Place several clusters of walnuts on the sheet. Pour chocolate over walnuts. You can make it all one sheet to break into chunks or keep the clusters separate from each other.

Refrigerate at least 30 minutes, or freeze for at least 15, until firm and enjoy! Store in the refrigerator...if you don’t finish them right away. 😉
