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, if you’ve even heard of ketosis then you can trust me on this one.
Strawberry fat bombs are totally low carb and incredibly delicious! Most fat bombs are. Let me tell you why….
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 – 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 a low carb fruit 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 low carb sweetener. 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.
Tools To Make
Making this strawberry cheesecake fat bombs recipe is totally simple and you only need a couple of items. Nothing crazy – probably stuff already sitting in your kitchen.
Here’s the list of things you’ll need to make these sweet little portioned pieces of decadence.
- Measuring cup – for measuring food items
- Food processor – for combining ingredients
- Rubber spatula – for scraping down sides
- Muffin pan or silicone molds – for forming the fat bombs
- Clean fingers – for popping them in your mouth!
I totally get it. It’s hard not to eat all of these sweet little gems with a spoon while they’re still soft, but you can’t control your portions that way!
As with any other type of cheesecake, this strawberry cheesecake fat bombs recipe is best stored in the fridge.
Can You Freeze These Healthy Snacks?
That’s affirmative! In fact, cream cheese-based fat bombs can often be a bit soft when stored in the fridge.
Storing these healthy snacks in the freezer makes them a bit firmer and extends their life. These little babies get gobbled up pretty quickly. They’re hard to resist.
There are lots of ways to customize your strawberry cheesecake fat bombs. Changing the flavor just a little gives you an entirely scrumptious new treat to enjoy all over again!
Here are a few of the simplest ways to change your strawberry cheesecake fat bombs recipe.
- Substitute coconut oil for butter.
- Play with different extracts like almond or mint extract for a new flavor twist.
- Add cocoa to make chocolate strawberry cheesecake fat bombs.
- Top with low carb chocolate for a new delight.
Can I Add Some Citrus Flavor?
If lemon cheesecake fat bombs are more your style than strawberry cheesecake, you can make those. Just mix in some lemon peel instead of the strawberries for some citrusy deliciousness…
With a small change or two, you can make sweet and tangy lemon fat bombs instead of strawberry cheesecake fat bombs.
Can I Add Coconut?
Adding coconut to your strawberry cheesecake fat bombs recipe creates a funky new flavor. Do so by swapping butter for coconut oil, or mixing in some unsweetened shredded coconut!
Or, you can also just make coconut fat bombs instead!
Can I Add Peanut Butter?
Peanut butter is another great fat to add to this recipe (or another other fat bomb recipe for that matter…).
Add them to this strawberry cheesecake fat bombs recipe for a PB+J type treat — just sub the cream cheese for PB and you’ll be good to go! Check out these chocolate peanut butter fat bombs or peanut butter fat bombs for a suuuper peanut butter-y treat!
Can I Mix In Some Chocolate?
Strawberry cheesecake fat bombs aren’t the only flavor you can make! While I think this strawberry cheesecake fat bombs recipe is one of the best, you can also make straight chocolate fat bombs with a hint of strawberry flavor!
Just add cocoa powder into the mix. Taste test your “batter” before you freeze.
You can also add sugar free chocolate chips into your fat bombs, or roll your partially defrosted fat bombs in delicious dark chocolate shavings.
Of course, you can go a completely different direction and make a cookie dough fat bomb recipe.
