Do I Need Fat Bombs on Keto?
Keto fat bombs have become super popular in the last year, so popular in fact it pushed us to create our own Keto Fat Bomb Bible.
BUT, keto fat bombs are an additional fun food on the diet, not something you need. Anything that is mainly fat like butter and oils are technically “fat bombs”. However, not many people can say they’d love to pop a tablespoon of butter straight in their mouth at the end of the night.
That’s why we made these keto cheesecake fat bombs and why we continue to make keto fat bombs. They make getting in fat easy on a keto diet, something you might not be used to prioritizing on a standard American diet.
Fat bombs add a little something sweet for your sweet tooth to enjoy at the end of the night making your diet more sustainable. Plus the prep time and total time is normally minimal on fat bombs so the recipes are super convenient.
Is Cream Cheese Keto?
Almost every single cream cheese is keto. Brands will vary on carb count, but all and all cream cheeses should only have 1-2 net carbs per serving.
If you are unsure of which cream cheese to buy, put on your investigator glasses and flip over to the nutrition label.
First check the sugars. If there are a few grams of sugar you’ll probably want to put that pack back as sugar factors into the carb count. Next check the total carbs, we usually look for under two grams of carbs per serving.
Finally, this isn’t needed but definitely helps weed out low quality brands if you’re interested in food quality. Try to find cream cheese with high quality dairy such as organic and hormone free. Then check the ingredients and look for any unsavory ingredients like carageenen, a gut harming seaweed emulsifier.
Powdered vs. Granular Sweetener
In this recipe we chose to use a low carb sweetener that was powdered, also known as confectioners style. This is because a powdered sweetener is much more likely to evenly mix and distribute into the cheesecake fat bombs batter. If you don’t have, or don’t want to buy powdered erythritol there is another option. Make cheesecake fat bombs with granular erythritol that you have pulsed in a coffee grinder to make a powder.
The Best Keto Sweeteners
Not sure which keto sweetener to use for your cheesecake fat bombs? We’ve got you covered with a list of our favorite sweetener options to make the best cheesecake fat bombs ever!
For the sweetener itself we chose powdered erythritol. We find erythritol to do a good job sweetening this recipe alone without anything else added. If you don’t like it or have liquid stevia you can use that instead. Monk fruit is also another great option. Just check to make sure your sugar free hot chocolate recipe has the right sweetness ratios.
How to Flavor Keto Cheesecake Fat Bombs
Not sure how to spice up these tasty keto fat bombs? Try a few of these yummy combinations to make your perfect treat.
We used two tablespoons of strawberries that we blended and then mixed into the batter with lemon zest. Some other great fruit options are:
- Key Limes– 2 tbsp of lime juice and 1/4 tsp lime zest make great additions for a key lime pie style cheesecake.
- Blueberry Lemon Cheesecakes– Blueberry lemon keto cheesecake fat bombs are made the same way as our strawberry variety. Except, rather than using 2 tbsp of blended strawberries, you’ll need 2 tbsp of blended blueberries.
- Raspberry– Raspberry similar to strawberry is a cheesecake classic.
Fruit is a lovely refreshing combo for rich cream cheese based cheesecake fat bombs. By picking the right fruit you can keep these low carb cheesecake fat bombs keto while still maintaining low levels of sugar.
