What's in Strawberry Cheesecake Fat Bombs?
*Exact measurements are listed in the recipe card below.
How to Make Strawberry Cheesecake Fat Bombs
Add all the ingredients to the bowl of a food processor and blend.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and continue mixing until everything is well combined.
Freeze for 1-2 hours or until they are completely set.
Tips for Making the Best Keto Fat Bombs
- Be sure to measure your strawberries carefully. Adding too many can make your mixture a little too runny.
- The cream cheese and butter should be completely at room temp. to avoid clumps.
- These fat bombs contain dairy and should be kept in the fridge. You can also store leftovers in the freezer in an air tight container for a couple months.
- Because this low carb fat bomb recipe requires you to blend until smooth, a food processor is recommended. But, if you don't have a food processor, don't let that stop you from making them. You can use a large blender like this one instead. Just be sure to stop and scrape down the sides often, but it will work just fine.
What Sweetener Can I Use for Keto Cheesecake Fat Bombs?
In this recipe, I used Allulose Powdered by Besti, a new line of natural sugar-free sweeteners that uses all high quality, non GMO ingredients.
Allulose tastes and dissolves just like traditional powdered sugar, but it has 0 calories, 0 net carbs and is 0 on the glycemic index and it has no cooling effect like some sugar alternatives.
Allulose is about 70% as sweet as sugar so if you're using it to convert a traditional dessert into a Keto dessert, you'll want to take that into consideration.
If you don't have Allulose, you can certainly substitute it with Swerve Confectioners. You'll use 3 tablespoons of Swerve, since it has a 1:1 ratio with sugar.
Can I Have Strawberries on Keto?
Carbs in strawberries come mainly from fiber. They have natural sugar but have a fairly low GI and should not cause a large spike in blood sugar.
Strawberries are good for Keto because they also have high levels of vitamin C, manganese, vitamin B9, potassium and other vitamins and minerals associated health benefits. If you'd like to know more about these benefits, check out this article.
What are the Net Carbs in Strawberry Cheesecake Fat Bombs?
For one whole cup of strawberries, there're about 9 net grams of carbs. This entire recipe calls for only ⅔ cup. Combined with the other fat bomb ingredients, these Keto treats come in with just ONE net carb per serving!
Why Eat Fat Bombs?
A Ketogenic Diet consists of a high amount of fat, moderate protein and low carbs, so the bulk of our calories come from healthy fats. If we don't consume enough healthy fat, we run the risk of following a high protein diet which is not Keto!
Some people struggle with this concept, since we're been told for many years that fat is bad and we should eat low/no fat. Nothing could be further from the truth!
These fats can include butter, heavy cream, coconut and coconut oil, avocados and avocado oil, mascarpone cheese, olive oil, cream cheese to name a few.

Adding these healthy fats into our meals is key, but there are times when you just don't have enough or doesn't quite fit into a particular meal that you're preparing. Fat bombs are perfect for times like this, where you can consume one or two and get your healthy fats in your macros! Most recipes make a fairly decent amount and most often can be frozen, so you can always have some on hand!
Another great perk to most fat bombs is they double as a sweet treat, that doesn't kick you out of Ketosis! Who doesn't love a bite of something sweet, without having to make an entire cake, pie or batch of cupcakes!?
Alternate Flavored Fat Bombs
It's really hard to beat the flavors in these Strawberry Keto Cheesecake Fat Bombs, but you can substitute the strawberries with another berry of your choice. Blackberries, blueberries and raspberries are all great low carb options.
You'll want to double check the carb count of the berries you opt for and adjust your macros accordingly.
