Eating Evolved Keto Cups
|Servings per container||7|
Where do I begin with these? I guess I'll start on a positive note. From a health standpoint they're made with only 4, high quality ingredients. Unlike other low carb and keto friendly food these don't contain any sugar alcohol either. They meet all of the criteria of the keto diet so they'll keep you in ketosis and give you a nice energy boost which is nice when you're in desperate need of an afternoon pick me up. They have a good texture too.
Now on to how these taste. From a taste stand point they are awful and definitely are not the best keto fat bomb. Like I mentioned above, the look of these keto cups is very promising. But biting into one is a whole other story. It's basically like eating pure coconut oil that's covered in the most bitter chocolate shell that you can imagine. Don't get me wrong, I use coconut oil all the time, I just don't consume it straight off the spoon because it makes me want to gag. And then there's the chocolate...if you've ever tasted a bit of unsweetened cacao power you know exactly how unpleasant the taste is. That's exactly what the chocolate shell of these cups taste like.
Even though I very much dislike these keto cups on their own I did find a good use for them. And that's to add them in my low carb protein shake (recipe coming soon). I simply throw 1 - 2 of these cups in my Ninja and blend well. The end result is that you can't taste the coconut oil once it's all blended together. And when combined in a shake, the unbearable cacao taste from the shell actually adds a nice (and subtle) dark chocolate flavor. And of course the cups give the added bonus of giving my shake a little energy packed boost...which is always much appreciated in the afternoon.
Note: The review of these keto cups is of the original flavor. They are also available in coffee flavor or an option that's sweetened with Stevia but I haven't tried either of those.
