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.

    Hello! I am fairly new to the keto woe. Still looking for new recipes to try so I do not get board with my menu. I see all kind of fat bomb recipes. What do they do for you to help lose weight and how many are allowed as a serving daily? Thank you.

    • KetoWoman says:

      Because the Keto WOE is higher fat than other eating plans it can be a challenge to keep up the fat ratio so this is why people use fat bombs. That said, I feel that many people get stuck on their weight loss goals because they eat too many fat bombs and too much dairy. So the answer to your question is to eat just enough to satisfy the macros you are trying to maintain.

  2. Hilda says:

    Do you have to freeze them or what

    • KetoWoman says:

      No, I don’t think freezing cream cheese would be a good idea, but who knows, I’ve never actually tried it! They are usually gone within a few days so no need to freeze.

  3. Alissa says:

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

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. Wendi says:

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

  11. 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.

  12. Tane Henley says:

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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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 🙂

  17. Michelle says:

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

  18. 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!

  19. 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…

  20. 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

  21. 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.

  22. stephanie herron says:

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

  23. 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!!!

  24. 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! 🙂

  25. 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!)

  26. Mary says:

    I may try this with the sugar free pudding too.

  27. Sue says:

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

  28. Pat Bailey says:

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

  29. SharO says:

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

  30. 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

  31. 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
