5-Min Prosciutto Avocado Fat Bomb Recipe [Paleo, Keto]
I’m always looking for fast, easy, and delicious snack recipes, and this one just popped into my head one day as I opened my fridge and stared at a pack of prosciutto and several avocados.
They make a really quick and easy snack (these prosciutto avocado fat bombs take only 5 minutes to make, look pretty to serve, and are suitable for a Paleo or Keto diet).
Fat bombs are delicious snacks (sometimes savory, sometimes sweet) that are low in sugar and high in fat. So they’re filling and full of healthy fats to keep you nourished and full for longer.

5-Min Prosciutto Avocado Fat Bomb Recipe
These snacks are so easy to make, but I took some step-by-step photos to help make things clearer anyway. And definitely don’t forget the third ingredient in this easy recipe – lime juice. Just that small drizzle of fresh lime juice makes a world difference in these fat bombs. You don’t need extra salt in this recipe as the prosciutto slices are already seasoned.
How to enjoy them?
These prosciutto avocado fat bombs are great as a snack or as an appetizer or as hor d’oeuvres to serve at a party (stick a cocktail stick in each one and pass them around!).
Hope you enjoy them – here are the step-by-step photo instructions.
Cut in half a ripe (but not over-ripe) avocado. You want the avocado to be ripe but still firm (so they form slices easily).
Cut a lime into quarters.
Score the avocado with a paring knife so that you cut it into chunks (see photo below).
Squeeze lime juice on the avocado halves you’ve scored so that they don’t turn brown while you’re putting the fat bombs together.
Lay a slice of prosciutto flat on a plate (you can also use ham or turkey slices – just cut them into long strips the width of which should be just longer than the length of the avocado slices). Place each avocado slice on each prosciutto slice.
Squeeze a bit more lime on the avocado slice. Don’t skip this step as that lime flavor adds a lot to the dish.
Roll the prosciutto slice up. If your prosciutto slice breaks (sometimes they’re too sliced too thin), then just try to keep it together as the wrapping process will help hold it together still. If you have really thin slices, then you can use 2 slices together.
