Easy Keto Swedish Meatballs

Per serving (3 meatballs) – 544 calories; 46 g Fat; 28 g Protein; 1 g Carbs 

Easy Keto Swedish Meatballs [Low Carb, Gluten Free] from Image source:

Inspired by Ikea’s Swedish meatballs, this recipe is said to be just as good but without all the carbs. What I like is it includes a sauce and cauliflower mash.

The recipe does include dairy, but I believe you might be able to get away with substituting the cream for full-fat coconut milk or coconut cream.

But, heads up, if you do sub with the coconut milk or cream, you might add a coconut taste to your Swedish meatballs.
