What is a Fat Bomb?
They are bite-sized treats that are usually made with a high-fat base, a sugar alternative, and some add-ons like fruits. They are taken as a meal replacement in the keto diet or as simple snacks.
Shaped into small scoops, balls, or disks, these fat bombs could be addicting. Even non-keto-ers can enjoy these delicious treats!
How to Make Keto Strawberry Cheesecake Fat Bombs:
- Mix: In a bowl, combine all ingredients with the strawberry pudding and strawberry bits coming in last. Remember to check if the cream cheese and butter are both at room temperature already. This ensures that they cream together well.
- Shape: Take a small amount of the mixture and roll into a ball. Place it on the baking sheet with parchment paper. Repeat until you make enough. If you want to roll the balls in crushed chocolate chips for added flavor and texture, then, this is the point to do so.
- Freeze: Put the baking sheet in the freezer for 2 hours until fully frozen.
What sweeteners are best to use?
Here are three low-carb sweeteners that you can use individually or in combination with the other:
- Stevia: medicinal plant-derived sweetener that may also help control levels of blood sugar and pressure, sweeter than sugar
- Erythritol: good for baking as you can control the sweetness better
- Sucralose: has zero calories, artificial sweetener that passes through the digestive system unchanged
