This strawberry cheesecake fat bombs recipe makes some of my most cherished low carb snacks of all time. They’re sweet, creamy, decadent and delightful.
Creating different low carb recipes for low carb desserts is my jam and this one is a winner!
You may be thinking that healthy recipes don’t include the words ‘fat’ and ‘bomb’ in the title – and normally you’d be right. But fat bombs are all the rage in the low carb/keto world.
Think of these as bite-sized low carb cheesecake, let me show you why you’ll love ’em!
I love how decadent and yummy this strawberry cheesecake fat bombs recipe is! Plus, it’s only two steps to done.
There is some wait time but that’s only for your fat bombs to firm up in the freezer and it makes them so much better.
Here are my favorite things about this recipe:
- Really simple to throw together
- Rich, sweet and yummy
- Ketogenic ingredients
- Great snack or dessert
- Grab and go low carb cake– no utensils required
The first step in this process is to put the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. It’s important to stop the food processor periodically and scrape down the sides to ensure all ingredients are thoroughly incorporated.
While it’s a quick and simple process, it’s not just a one and done.
You’ll also want to process your ingredients until they’re a near liquid consistency. This’ll also help ensure a smooth creamy consistency and an even flavor throughout. – And trust me…once you taste these, you’ll appreciate it!
I put my fat bombs in silicone molds, but muffin pans work too. If you use muffin pans, you’ll want to grease it with butter or coconut oil to ensure easy removal when its time to eat.
Fat – You probably know that this strawberry cheesecake fat bombs recipe tastes better and is more effective with full fat ingredients… There’s something to be said for real butter.
Hence the name fat bombs!
Strawberries – This strawberry cheesecake fat bombs recipe is totally low carb, even with real fruit in it. Luckily, strawberries are one of the keto fruits and this recipe only calls for half a cup.
It’s best to use fresh strawberries, though, as frozen fruit releases too much water for this recipe.
Sweetener – The other consideration is your keto sweeteners. I prefer using powdered erythritol because it’s a very low carb sweetener that’s diabetes friendly, since it doesn’t spike blood sugar. If you can’t find it in powdered form, just buy the crystals and run them through the food processor until smooth.

Fans Also Made These Low Carb Recipes:
- Lakanto, Swerve, or Erythritol. I stick to Lakanto and Swerve which are a 1:1 swap with traditional sugar. If using a different brand of Erythritol, keep in mind it's 70% as sweet as sugar, so you may need to add more to taste
- Molds. I used this silicone mold from Amazon.
- Storing. I prefer to stash my fat bombs in the freezer so they stay firm (and last longer!). Cream cheese based fat bombs in the fridge tend to get soft.
- Sprinkles. I crushed freeze dry strawberries and sprinkled them on top.
