For those who are new to Keto, the idea of eating something called a fat bomb can create an uneasy feeling. Once you understand the basic concepts of Keto, you will feel more at ease with the idea of a fat bomb. Check out our Low Carb / Keto 101 Page if you are starting out. Also, our Keto Macro Calculator can help with how these Fat Bombs can fit into your macros.
All you’ll need to make these delicious bombs: Cream cheese, coconut oil, erythritol, vanilla extract and strawberries make these the bomb diggity. Pardon our deliciously cheesy puns, we’re a little hungry and need one of these bombs, stat.
We recommend using a muffin tin with liners to keep your fat bombs all nice and neat while you prep for the next step.
How to Store Cheesecake Fat Bombs
After you make these fat bombs, you will want to make sure to store them in the refrigerator to keep them fresh. The cream cheese base (dairy) requires that they be maintained at a safe temperature for consumption. Don’t leave them out too long and risk getting sick.
Another key to properly storing these Keto Fat Bombs is to keep them in an airtight container to prevent your bombs from hardening. Nothing worse than having your hard work go to waste and not be able to enjoy them.
Can I freeze my Keto Fat Bombs? Yes, you absolutely can – and will – freeze your fat bombs. In the process of making these, you will freeze them for 30 minutes.
Once you have them frozen, move them to the refrigerator. If you will only be eating a few at a time, you can move a portion at a time.
We’re never able to resist these fat bombs, so it’s hard for us to go the portion route. I mean, we can always make more … right?
You have 7 days to devour. We believe in you.

Dropping a little history
Ever wonder “how on earth did fat bombs becoming a thing?” We were wondering the same thing.
Healthy fats have becoming something we appreciate. Keto diet most definitely is to thank for this. Did you know that the origin of fat bombs dates back to the 1920s?
Yes, you read that right.
All the way back to the 1920s, when endocrinologist Dr. Henry Rawle Geyelin was focused on addressing epilepsy with diet. The result? Ketogenics. Helllllo fat bombs.
HOW MANY NET CARBS IN OUR FAT BOMBS?
1 Net Carbs per bomb! We don’t know about you, but that number makes us SO happy! Remember to recalculate if you decide to try one of the variations as the carb count can shift, adding to the Net Carb total. For example, blueberries are a higher carb count than strawberries.
We provide the sugar alcohols information IN the nutrition card now. WOOT! We do subtract sugar alcohols to get our net carbs so you have all the information provided below in case you need to do it differently. Remember we are a judgement free zone here and please be kind to others if they follow things a bit differently.
If you’d like to use another form of sugar alcohol be sure to check out our low carb sweetener conversion chart. This recipe can easily be made sweeter by using more of whatever sweetener you decide to use. We tend to go on the mild sweetener side of things so do what works for you in that regard as well.
So now that you know a little bit more about these Keto diet staples, we encourage you to plan to incorporate into your diet on a regular basis. They are a quick grab-and-go snack that is perfect for breakfast.
Another great time to go for a fat bomb is that mid-afternoon slump. NOTHING worse than hitting the wall and feeling groggy. Fat bombs to the rescue!
Working out seems counter-intuitive to being the perfect time to drop a fat bomb, but it’s honestly a GREAT time to reach for one. Whether you pop one before your work out or after, you won’t regret it.
Our personal preference? We like to go post-workout 9 times out of 10. We’re not a huge fan of putting anything but water on our stomachs prior to anything that might involve cardio. But again, that’s just a personal preference. You do you!
