An extremely easy and super quick recipe for keto Raffaello balls. Be careful with this recipe because these Raffaello fat bombs are to die for. Seriously!
One of the biggest advantages of a keto diet (click to master the basics) is that it practically doesn’t limit you in any way. You can have the keto version of almost any meal or dessert you can think of. This is especially true for any sweets, cakes and desserts. The best thing about it is that the keto version is always much more delicious and is healthy.
Today I’m sharing with you the recipe for keto Raffaello balls, one of my favorite keto desserts of all time. If you’ve ever eaten Raffaello balls, the chances are you’re going to love my low carb and sugar free version of Raffaello balls.
These keto coconut balls have ideal protein-to-fat ratio so you can eat them as a snack or even as a well-balanced keto meal (if you add a portion of veggies, of course). Don’t take them to work because your coworkers will eat all of them. 🙂
Here is some math for all the sixty eight keto Raffaello balls and detailed calculations per one ball.

Pour one whole can of coconut milk into a larger bowl.
Measure and add 80 g of the protein powder of your choice.
Blend the milk with the protein powder until it becomes smooth (and not too thin as well).
Add coconut flakes and blend it once again. If it's too thin, add more coconut flakes.
Put coconut oil and butter into a pot and dissolve them.
Pour the dissolved butter and coconut oil into the bowl and blend it yet again.
You can now start forming balls. Remember to put a hazelnut or almond inside each coconut ball.
Place ready Raffaello balls onto a separate plate.
Sprinkle the ready Raffaello balls with some coconut flakes to make them look even prettier.
Put the ready balls into the fridge and wait for about 1-2 hours before consuming them. Ideally, let them stay in the fridge for the whole night.
Feel free to change some ingredients, add different ones (e.g. coconut flower or some aromas) or change amounts. However, remember that it's easy to go overboard with calories and fat when preparing such delicious keto desserts. That's why if you are on a caloric deficit, I suggest sticking only to the suggested amounts.
