So one of the big things in the low carb/keto world is “fat bombs.” What are fat bombs you ask? They are food, usually a treat, that has a high amount of fat. Fat helps with being satiated, and when you are in ketosis, your body is burning fat for energy. So fat bombs are a good thing. I can’t stand the term “fat bomb,” despite the fat that I just wrote it four times. So we won’t call these that. We’ll stick with frozen orange creamsicle cream cheese bites, because that’s not a mouthful…(insert eye roll)

So my first attempt with cream cheese bites I made them with liquid stevia. Theywere good, but I just can’t handle the aftertaste of the stevia. It sticks with you, forever. Well maybe not forever, but a bit. It could be just my liquid stevia. It’s the store brand from a health food store. Maybe there’s better stuff. I even googled an article on learning to like stevia. Meh. Tell me what type of stevia you use and if you like it!

Other than the stevia issue, the frozen cream cheese bites I made were pretty good. I flavored them with almond extract and they really helped with my sweet tooth and I didn’t cheat at all that day or the next. That’s big for me!

So this time around I used Swerve, which tastes just like cane sugar, to me at least. My issue with Swerve is that it bothers my stomach if I have too much. The FAQs on the Swerve website says that the erythritol is not likely to cause GI distress…but it does to me. So I have to be careful with it. Maybe I’ll adapt. Well see.

I only had granulated Swerve on hand, but you should use the powdered form for these frozen orange creamsicle cream cheese bites, otherwise they have a grainy texture. I put the granulated swerve in the blender for a few seconds and it became powdered, which works well.


The orange flavor comes from a little bottle of orange extract. It smells delicious. I found it at the grocery store, but you can find higher quality ones online. The creamcisle part comes from the vanilla extract. Yum!


In a perfect world, I would have made these look really good using a pretty pastry tip, but I couldn’t find one, so I just put the cream cheese mixture in a plastic bag and cut off tip. Desperate times man. But I did use a little bit of food gel to make these orange. This is totally optional. Otherwise they are just white.

These sound delicious. Have you tried dipping them in chocolate? I'm thinking of those orange creams that come in the big boxes of assorted chocolates. I might have to give it a try.

I haven't tried dipping them in chocolate, but I like the way you think! I have melted Lily's baking chips with success, so I bet it would work with these. The chocolate would have to be melted and a little cooled and the bites would have to be really frozen. If you do it, take a pic and let me know!

Too salty and cheesy. Use unsalted butter and maybe whipped cream?

You could try whipped cream and freeze in an ice cube tray if you don't like cream cheese.
