What are fat bombs?
Fat bombs are usually a simple combination of high-fat, low-carb ingredients, such as butter, cream cheese, coconut oil, etc.
They can act as a healthy keto dessert or snack. If you’re on the keto diet, you shouldn’t need to snack, but if you are feeling hungry (especially early on), low-carb fat bombs are a good option. If you don’t need a snack but are missing “regular food”, try them as a low-carb dessert.
Naturally fat bombs do not contain added sugar, although most recipes allow for a little stevia or other non-sugar, natural sweetener if you desire.
Fat bombs that don’t taste like coconut!
Often, fat bombs, including this recipe for 3-ingredient chocolate fat bombs, contain coconut oil or coconut butter. Personally, I enjoy the taste of coconut and it rarely stands out as “too much coconut” for me, however, some people don’t like coconut in their fat bombs.
If you prefer fat bombs that don’t taste like coconut, these strawberry cheesecake fat bombs are a perfect option for you!
How do you make fat bombs?
Luckily fat bombs are super easy to make. You don’t have to be experienced in the kitchen. They’re usually pretty fast too
Most fat bomb recipes, including this strawberry cheesecake version, involve blending together 3-4 simple ingredients then scooping onto a cooking sheet or into molds or mini muffin cups. If you can wait, you let them chill for an hour or so and they’re ready to enjoy. (But it doesn’t hurt if you enjoy a scoopful before they’re chilled; just remember to count your carbs if you’re on the keto diet.)

How to make Strawberry Cream Cheese Fat Bombs
For the fastest, smoothest results, you’ll want to use a food processor to make these low carb fat bombs. It’s not required though – you can use a mixer (hand or stand) or mix by hand (though you’re liable to end up lumps).
1. Process the ingredients.
Process the cream cheese, butter, thawed strawberries, and powdered sweetener together.
2. Scrape and process again.
Scrape the sides of your food processor or bowl and process or mix once again.
Taste your cream cheese fat bombs mixture and add a little more natural sweetener if you prefer.
3. Scoop onto a cookie sheet
One batch makes approximately 16 medium-sized fat bombs. You can make smaller fat bombs if you prefer.
4. Freeze until solid.
How to store cheesecake fat bombs:
For the best results, keep your cream cheese fat bombs in the freezer and allow for 10-15 minutes of thaw time before you enjoy one or two.
You can keep them in the refrigerator but they won’t stay as solid and more likely to smoosh together if you take them off the cookie sheet.
