As mentioned in my recipe for bacon ranch fat bombs that posted last week, I have been researching fat fasts and the benefits for diabetics and weight loss. You can read more about that in the post on bacon ranch fat bombs.
I also love a bit of sweet/sour for my treats and have seen a lot of recipes for things like cream cheese with Davinci SF syrup and artificial sweetener. Then, I saw a recipe for sugar free sour gummy worms, using gelatin and SF flavored Jello to roll them in for that sour taste. It got my wheels turning (dangerous, I know) and the result were these delicious little cheesecake bombs.
Fresh Raspberries or Not?
For the purposes of my fat fast, I chose to not add additional carbs with the raspberries, but if you are on a traditional low carb diet, you can add some berries and give these a richer flavor. Just mash up about 1/4 cup and stir them in along with the other ingredients listed below. Enjoy!
- 8 ounces original cream cheese
- 1 tablespoon liquid stevia
- 1 small package of raspberry flavored sugar free Jello mix
Allow cream cheese to sit out and soften for about an hour (you don't want to microwave it as it will be too runny to form into balls)
Add liquid stevia and stir together completely (you can also sub Splenda or artificial sweetener of your choice - if you use a granulated sweetener, you'll need to add liquid, such as some vanilla extract)
Form mixture into small balls and roll in the Jello mix powder.
Place on a plate and cover with plastic wrap.
Refrigerate for two hours.
These have the taste of cheesecake with a bit of added tang from the Jello. Give them a try. If you crave sour things, you won’t be disappointed. Your only problem will be trying not to gobble them all up.
