hi everyone!

For those of you who I have not introduced myself to, my name is Kali! I started my instagram about a month ago to track my progress with a vegan ketogenic diet. From there it has taken a few turns and now I am posting about my vegan-keto journey as well as other health & wellness tips, meals, supplements and whatever else may come up!

My most popular post by far has been my lavender vanilla keto bites & maca rose keto bites, and I have to say I really enjoy them myself! When switching over to a ketogenic diet (for those of you who may not know what that means, it is when your body switches to buring fat as fuel which is called ketosis. In order to get into ketosis you have to increase your fat intake and decrease your carbs) it was confusing trying to make sure I was eating enough to fuel my body and satisfy my hunger.

After a few days I figured things out for myself with lots of google searches and reading other peoples blogs (what would we do without the internet) ! I have to say that within the past three weeks I have had so much energy and I have basically eliminated my cravings! There are so many benefits of a vegan diet and so many benefits of a ketogenic diet. So what are these keto bites all about?  Keto bites are a quick stack for anyone doing a ketogenic diet, they are of course high in fat (sometimes called fat bombs), have some protein and a small amount of carbs. So lets get to making them!

Supplies:

  • Blender, food processor or magic bullet
  • Silicone ice cube tray

Ingredients (Lavender Vanilla):

  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1tbs vanilla extract
  • 1-2 drops lavender extract (I added more the first time & it was strong)
  • 1/2 tbs pink himalayan salt
  • 2 tbs acai powder
  • 3 tbs almond butter
  • 1tbs stevia (can be adjusted depending on preference)
  • Food Grade Dried Lavender *optional for topping*

1. These are pretty easy to make. I basically just add everything into my magic bullet container. I let it all blend together until it is thoroughly mixed.

2. Have silicon tray ready, evenly pour in the tray. The even pour is important if you are someone who keeps track of macros.

3. Place tray in freezer. (optional to take out after about 1 minute to add dried lavender to top)

4. Once the bites have set, pop them out and enjoy!

Ingredients (Maca Rose):

  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1tbs vanilla extract
  • 2 tbs maca powder
  • 2 tbs cacoa powder
  • 1/4 cup cacoa nibs
  • 3 tbs almond butter
  • 1 tbs stevia

*refer to directions above, the only difference is that I save some of the cacoa nibs to add to the top of the bites. the same rules apply, allow the bites to sit in the tray in the freezer for a minute or two so they are not completely liquid and then add the cacoa garnish!

Have any questions? Please let me know, I love talking about being vegan and being on a ketogenic diet! You can contact me on here or add my on my instagram: thewholesomeholistic !

  1. These are so beautiful! I don’t have all the ingredients (and I’m allergic to almonds), so I’m making a modified version today. 😀

    Thanks for the inspiration! ❤
