Berry Cheesecake Fat Bombs
I am borrowing this recipe from www.fatforweightloss.com.au
Total time: 2.5 hours (includes estimated freezing time)
Gluten Free, Low Carb/Keto, Nut Free, and Vegetarian.
Serving Size: 6
6 large strawberries
1/4 cup frozen mixed berries
8.5 oz Cream Cheese
3 TBSP water
Liquid Stevia (optional)
Silicon mold or ice cube tray. Preferably one with 6 slots.
Spoon for distributing mixture
1. Get your silicone tray ready. (I used my minis tray so that I could spread out the fruit more. Sometimes it’s nice to feel naughty by eating two or three, when really that’s the serving.)
2. Take your 6 strawberries and cut off the tops. Put them in a blender with 1/2 of the block of cream cheese (4.25 oz) and 1 TBSP of water. Blend until smooth. I used my puree setting on my Ninja Blender.
3. Then use a spoon to fill your tray spots halfway. Carefully put the tray in the freezer for 10 minutes or until semi-frozen so that the top layer doesn’t sink through.
4. While you’re waiting, blend the 1/4 cup of mixed berries, the remaining cream cheese (4.25 oz) and add 2 TBSP water. Puree this as well. It might be the same shade, depending on the mixed fruit you used (I used blueberries and raspberries).
5. Use a spoon to layer the mixed berries mixture onto the semi-frozen layer. Try to jiggle the tray to let the mixture settle.
6. Freeze until solid. Hopefully they’re two different colors, but they’ll have two different flavors. They melt quick, so keep them frozen until you eat them.
*I added about 10-15 drops of liquid Stevia to the mixture, because my husband likes a little sweetness. I also thought it brought out the flavor of my blueberries and raspberries more.*
Hopefully these will keep you cool at camp, while also providing the berry kick you need. Enjoy!
