Strawberry, Chocolate and Butterscotch Fat Bombs!

Cream Cheese Fat Bombs Recipe – Pudding and Jello Pops!

I think I just died and went to heaven.  I just popped my first Jello Cream Cheese Ball and it was divine.  I was browsing some of the low carb forums looking for high fat food ideas (still sounds wrong when I say it out loud!)

There was someone who talked about rolling cream cheese into jello powder and eating and well, I just

low carb cream cheese balls

Strawberry, my favorite!

happened to have some cream cheese in the fridge and sugar free jello in the cupboard. Strawberry as a matter of fact. Here in Canada we have only 3 flavors in the stores but I can order my Sugar Free Jello from Amazon and get more variety.

And then from there of course, I had to try dipping them in sugar free pudding mix, as you can see from my main image above.  But I do have to say, that after all the flavors that I have experimented with, I still like the tart flavor explosion of using the Jello Strawberry, Raspberry or Cherry.

So here is the recipe:

Low Carb Jello Cream Cheese Balls

  1. 1  8oz package of Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese or any brand as long as it’s the solid brick type.
  2. 1 package of sugar free jello or pudding mix

Note: If you want to do a smaller amount, 1 tbsp of mix does about 4 cream cheese balls.

  • Take the package of Cream cheese and cut into 16 squares.
  • Put the jello or pudding mix in a small bowl.
  • Take each square and cover with pudding mix on all sides.
  • Then roll into a ball in your hands.
  • Keep covered with plastic wrap in the fridge.

Serving size is 2 balls.

Each serving of 2 cream cheese balls is 105 calories, 1 carb, 9 g fat and 3 g protein.

These make a perfect snack for LCHF or any other low carb diet.

    What about dipped in a mixture of cinnamon and your choice of sweetener.

  2. Marra says:

    Oh my friends, the recipe sounds incredible but your comments are spawning all kinds of ideas. Maybe the white chocolate sugar free pudding with pumpkin spice for fall, Cocoa powder with cinnamon and a touch of stevia. Maybe a combo of strawberry jello and a dusting of cocoa? So many ideas. Maybe mix a little coconut oil in with the cream cheese and add the lime…hmmmm

  3. Joey says:

    um…i wanted to experiment with this and just tossed in the whole packet of pudding mix, but it turned out like a dough ball. jello packets are smaller…are they easier to work with and taste better? i hear pudding mix gives people tummy aches…

    • KetoWoman says:

      lol, yes I can imagine it! I do find the jello mix easier to work with, it’s nowhere near as sticky. And I love the sweet and tart taste of the jello balls. The pudding balls taste completely different, more of a cheesecake feel.

  4. Xylitol is a great sweetener and you don’t get the ‘Aspartame-like’ after taste in Stevia and other artificial sweeteners.

    • KetoWoman says:

      I actually really like xylitol as well as the fact that it’s made from birch trees. My only warning would be to try it cautiously the first time. If I have a xylitol packet with coconut oil in a coffee, I am glued to the bathroom for hours. Apparently, only a small % of people are affected this way. But there are times that this laxative effect is a good thing!

  5. Steph says:

    Are your measurements right? It took me 1tbsp to make 18. Do I mix the jello in the cheese or just coat it?

    • KetoWoman says:

      You are just going to coat the balls. SO you used 1 tbsp jello mix for all 18 balls? I’ll have to do it again this weekend, maybe it’s a taespoon then. I don’t usually do it that way, I usually use the entire package for 1 brick of cream cheese.

  6. Roger says:

    I figured something this simple couldn’t possibly be great tasting, but boy was I wrong! I tried strawberry first and it was amazing. I’ll try other gelatin and pudding flavors, and if they are half as good I’ll be one happy keto’er. Thanks!

  7. Tracey says:

    Can you mix some Stevia or carb free sweetener in the cream cheese before making these? Also, how would the consistency be if I left them in the freezer?

    • KetoWoman says:

      I have never frozen cream cheese before so I can’t answer that question. You could probably sprinkle some sweetener onto the cream cheese balls but try first without, they might already be sweet enough.

    • Kait says:

      When I make them I put them in the freezer for an hour and put 3 in a bag an then keep them in the fridge the taste better to me.

    • Roger says:

      I have to second the recommendation to try without sweetener first. Just using plain cream cheese with sugar free strawberry gelatin ended up being sweeter than I expected, and made my “sweet tooth” very happy.

  8. Wendi says:

    i get violent headaches from sugar free anything, I am doing unsweetened coconut and/or coco, keeping it all keto too.

  9. Danasa says:

    I made these with sugar free cheese cake pudding mix and they are pretty good but found they get sticky even when left in the refrigerator. I was thinking about rolling them in chopped pecans!!! I will let you know how they come out! By the way… Thank you for these 🙂

    • KetoWoman says:

      Yes, I know what you mean about them being sticky. I only make a small amount. The Jello ones don’t get like that so I try to make a plate of those. The kids like them too.

  10. Tane Henley says:

    They are really good with the orange or the lime sugar free jello

  11. Trudi says:

    I thought using sugar substitutes like Equal wasn’t recommended?

    • KetoWoman says:

      That is a personal choice that everyone can make for themselves. You certainly don’t want to overdo them. When that sweet tooth hits I think it’s better than eating the junk food out there.

  12. Nan says:

    I’m new to keto and froze a cream cheese bomb made with pumpkin, PPS and stevia. It was a big batch so it lasted about 3 weeks. It got just a titch dry but was still very good. Maybe I should have covered with wrap to stay fresher. I think the pumpkin help it stay ok.

  13. manal says:

    Oh..forgot to ask…do you these will stay ok in the fridge? Can’t freeze them 🙁

    • KetoWoman says:

      oh yes, I keep mine in the back of the fridge for a few days. I try not to have more than 2 in a day.

  14. manal says:

    OMG!! Just made some using sugar free pistachio pudding mix and tasted like ice cream! thank you so much for such a good idea!

    I tried it with a ziploc and got too much on it first, and then figured it out 🙂

  15. Michelle says:

    Rather than pouring the jello in a bowl, put it in a Ziploc bag : )

  16. Terri W. says:

    You could also mix cocoa powder with Swerve and maybe a little vanilla, instant coffee, and cinnamon! OMG my mouth is watering! Thanks for the recipe!

  17. Hazel says:

    …or for less mess, maybe put jello powder in a bowl, cut the cheese into squares, drop two or three squares at a time into the bowl, toss with fork or spoon and transfer coated squares to a plate? Maybe not as much fun, but less work and mess…

  18. tammy says:

    just made these using SF cherry jello, and they are so yummy! love the tartness. i didnt bother rolling the cream cheese, just coated the cubes in the jello. quicker into my mouth that way! ;P

  19. Jeanette Hernandez says:

    just made some with the 1/3 fat cream cheese and sugar free strawberry banana. I used my small pamper chef cookie scoop to make them easier. Just scoop and drop . They are yummy……

    • KetoWoman says:

      I love the cookie scoop idea, thanks for the tip!

    • Hazel says:

      Jeanette, do you know that manufacturers of low-fat and fat-free products add starch to their mixtures, to replace fat? They do. Check the carb count in comparable products. If you’re on low-carb or keto for the weight loss, they both specify full-fat dairy.

  20. stephanie herron says:

    Yes Great with sf pudding!!I used banana cream…next gonna try chocolate fudge!!!

  21. Heather says:

    I love this idea. Been trying to come up with some recipes that will go with my little sister’s baby shower theme. We’re doing a Little Monsters theme and I’ve seen the small cheese balls they made that look like little monsters but they’re only the color of the cheese. I love the idea of this because not only can you vary the colors … it varies the flavors too. Thank you so much for sharing!!!

  22. AJ says:

    I made these jello cream cheese balls and the key is to sprinkle only a tiny bit of jello into a bowl and coat one ball very lightly. Then sprinkle more and do a second one. The dry jello mix is VERY strong and it really is too sweet and strong if you coat it a lot. Also I found that smaller balls are better because you get a good balance of sweet jello and cream cheese. Awesome emergency treat for sure. Thanks for sharing:) I used cherry-YUM! But I’m also going to use orange for a “creamsicle” treat!

    • KetoWoman says:

      you definitely develop a technique after doing this a few times. I like your creamsicle idea, that is taste blast from the past! Yum! 🙂

  23. kim says:

    What about softening the cream cheeseand mixing the sugar free jello in?

    • KetoWoman says:

      I like the distinct separate tastes when biting into a coated one. Have you tried it all mixed in? How was it? (Not sure how I missed your comment 2 months ago! Sorry!)

  24. Mary says:

    I may try this with the sugar free pudding too.

  25. Sue says:

    I made the peach ones tonight. Walkmart had the peach flavor. So delicious!!!

  26. Pat Bailey says:

    I wonder if these could also be good as a frozen treat?

  27. SharO says:

    I would try the chocolate but the dye in foods is very bad for you!

  28. Carline says:

    Wow I cant wait to try this! I’m going to try chocolate covered cream cheese balls too. Using homemade chocolate!

    • anitabreeze says:

      That sounds really great! I’ll be posting a recipe for Emergency Chocolate soon! The cream cheese balls are just so handy to have around for emergencies as well.

    • Js says:

      Cream cheese freezes well. I always have a block in my freezer for when I want to Mae a recipe. And unwrap it when I take it out so I don’t loose so much to the wrapper when it comes to room temp. Suggest that you cut it into cubes before freezing

  29. whitney says:

    Hello – I just started a keto diet a few days ago and found your site while looking for recipes. These jello balls look like fun treat. Are they messy?

    • KetoWoman says:

      actually, I thought it would be really messy to make but was not too bad. I used the Philly cream cheese in a brick and made sure it was good a cold out of the fridge. By the end, there was for sure jello powder all over my hands but the cream cheese stayed intact. I just tried cherry today and that tastes a little strong, I want to try lemon next because I think that will taste like cheesecake!

    • Darby says:

      I also started a few days ago and these have me sooooo excited for my husbands sweet tooth!!!:D
