I made Strawberry Cheesecake Fat Bombs today after finding the recipe on the Low-Carb, So Simple! website. I used butter instead of coconut fat and frozen strawberries. I also used Stevia as the sweetener. Pretty yummy!

How many and what size did the recipe make? Since I can't do the alternate sweetners, I need to know about how much it is so I can see if I can use a small amount of sugar.

I think you could get by without any sweetener in these.

I wonder how fresh raspberries and chopped dark chocolate would work, Valentine's day is coming up!

Nothin' like a fat bomb to say I love you!

A raspberry and dark chocolate fat bomb for you

Absolutely, I would taste the strawberries first to see if they needed sweetened. I'm so used to no sugar now that veggies taste sweet now that never used to.

It makes 12 fat bombs. You would need maybe a teaspoon of sugar - or more very sweet strawberries!

Those look delicious!

One question... am I totally losing it, or is there no calorie count listed anywhere in the recipe? In addition to carbs, I also keep track of my calories.

By the way, I'm down 45 pounds today. Yippeee!

When I get to 50, I might post a before/after photo.

Thank you! So that would be 4 grams of sugar carbs spread out over 12 servings. One of those with a bite of 72% chocolate...

I have some Strawberry spread, 40 cal per 1 tablespoon with 9 grams of carbs, made with sugar. I stirred 2 tablespoons into 6 ounces of whipped cream cheese with 2 tablespoons of butter. Hot Dang!
