These Lemon Lime Keto Cheesecake Balls make for the perfect dessert or fat bomb. And each of these low carb treats has just 2g net carbs.
Hello fellow health nuts.
What am I doing right now? Just eating some Keto Cheesecake Balls and contemplating doing some exercise. Yep, I’m going to start exercising. Any minute now.
But Keto Cheesecake Balls, let’s talk about them.
These Lemon and Lime Cheesecake Balls are creamy citrus flavored fat bombs. They make the perfect post exercise treat or after meal dessert.
What are fat bombs?
When you are on a Keto diet, you are always looking for ways to get more healthy fats in. That is because fat is burned as an energy source when you deprive your body of carbohydrates. Unlike on low fat diets, the more fat you eat, the more body fat you lose. So Ket dieters often eat bite sized balls or cubes of high fat content ingredients called fat bombs.
What’s in these Keto Cheesecake Balls?
The ingredients for these fat bombs are: full fat cream cheese, full fat sour cream, fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, fresh lime juice, lime zest, super fine almond flour, erythritol granulated sweetener, vanilla extract and unsweetened shredded coconut
How do you make these Keto Cheesecake Balls?
These no-bake cheesecake balls are very easy to make. You start by mixing all the cheesecake ball dough ingredients together and rolling them into balls. Then you freeze the dough balls for 10 min. You mix the unsweetened shredded coconut with erythritol sweetener, and then roll the dough balls in the coconut mixture. And you are done!
Where did this recipe for Keto Cheesecake Balls come from?
They are based on a recipe for Keto Lemon Coconut Balls that I found on Mouthwatering Motivation. I upped the citrus flavor by adding in lime juice and zest, so they've got a subtle citrus flavor and a smooth creamy texture.
Ok, that’s about all I can say about these fat bombs.
Best get back to my aerobic dancing. Any minute now.Print

I usually make the fatbombs that are without the almond flour but these are AMAZING!! The almond flour gives it a mixed in crust texture almost and I like that I can just keep these in the fridge and they are soft. Really great recipe. It's a KETO KEEPER!!!
Yay! I'm glad you like them. I feel like they are a little bit like cake pops?

I am thinking about making these for my son's wedding reception at church. How far in advance can I make them and how do I store them?
Well, the lemon lime bites are primarily made of cream cheese, and opened cream cheese lasts up to 10 days. I'd make them closer to the day though, so they are relatively fresh. Do not freeze them though, because that will completely change the texture of the dessert. And congratulations to your son!
I made it with golden monkfruit and only put 1 TLB and it was tart and wonderful! going to try and make lemon cheese cake with the recipe
Great, thanks for letting me know that you liked it!
These fat bombs are really really good. I've been eating them as post work out snacks. It's a great reward.
Oh, I love this recipe. For a post work-out snack, it's pretty decadent.
Hey Emily! I'm so glad you enjoyed my recipe! Lime sounds like a great alternative! Love your blog by the way 🙂 -Sam
Yay! Thanks so much for the great recipe!
Hi Emily. I've seen your pins on Pinterest a lot in tribes I'm in, and I recently came across your massively helpful thread about Pinterest from last November on the FBP message boards. Thought I would drop you a note on this delicious-looking recipe and say THANK YOU for all the expertise you shared there! I will be making some of these bites to take with us on a family trip this weekend. All the best to you! -Rachel @birdseedkitchen.com
Thanks so much for writing Rachel! This made my day.
