Strawberry Creme Fat Bombs
I dreamed up this fat bomb recipe for valentines day. I wanted a sweet treat that we could enjoy and this flavor was on my Fat Bomb Flavor Idea Board.
(Have a fat bomb flavor suggestion– comment and let me know! I'll add it to my board.)
This recipe is part of my “How To Make Fat Bomb's” series and is a dairy free fat bomb recipe.
Once you learn how to make these, you can experiment with your own flavors. Now, let's get to the recipe and then we'll talk more about subtitutions you can make.

Strawberry Creme Fat Bombs
- You can use a mini-crockpot or a pan on your stove set on low for this recipe.
- Pour 1 Tablespoon into each mold. Carefully put nuts into each mold--pressing them down with a spoon (or your fingers) as needed.
- Place carefully in your freezer for 20 minutes or until set. Then, remove from freezer and let sit for 5 minutes to make removing the fat bombs from the molds easier.
- Store in an airtight container in your fridge or freezer!
Tips For Amazing Fat Bombs
Choose Quality Ingredients
Fat bombs purpose is to increase our fat percentage. It can be quite a challenge to get up to 80% fat, especially during the first phase. Since Fat bombs are mostly made of fat, it is essential that we use high quality fats so that the fat bombs taste good AND are good for us! For your convenience, there's a list of recommended ingredients towards the end of this post.
Storage: Tight & Cool
Store your fat bombs in a tightly sealed container in a cool location. During the winter, fat bombs often sit out on our counter because we keep our home at a cool 66 degrees which is well below the melting temperature of Coconut Oil. However, in the warmer months we store these in the refrigerator. Keep them cool and in a tightly sealed container for optimum freshness and enjoyment 🙂
Fat Bomb Ingredient Substitutions
You can substitute nut butters in this recipe. Keep in mind that the carbohydrate content of nut butters vary quite a bit. Cashew butter is actually on of the higher carb options. But, there's so little of it in this recipe that it doesn't impact the final carb count very much.
Here's a few lower carb options to consider that work really well in this recipe.
Choosing Fat Bomb Molds
Choosing molds for your fat bombs is really fun. Look for silicone candy or chocolate molds that are approved to be used with heated material.
Think about the size of fat bomb you would like to end up with and purchase molds in that size. Some people like their fat bombs thinner, fatter, taller, wider. 🙂 There's so many different shapes and sizes to choose from!
Avoid ice molds because they are generally made with plastics that are unsafe to heat.
If you don’t have silicone candy molds, and don't want to buy anything look around your kitchen for things you can use.
Mini cupcake pans are a popular mold for people just starting out. These can be a little challenging to remove fat bombs from, especially in the colder months. To remove, let the fat bombs sit for 10-15 minutes at room temp before you attempt to take them out of the stiffer molds.
Look at all these fun molds!

Things Used in Strawberry Fat Bombs
Cashew Butter (look for one with no sugar in the ingredients list)
Watkins Pure Vanilla Extract (Make sure you choose the “pure vanilla”. We do love the taste of the “baking vanilla” but it does contain sugar & propylene glycol)
-or- Madagascar Pure Vanilla Extract by Simply Organic
-or- Organic Almond Extract
These are inexpensive and very convenient. I really like using them for fat-bombs because of the gentle heat when melting ingredients and the ability to keep things warm when I’m making layered ‘fat bombs’.
The molds I’m using are by “Chicago Metallic” but they are no longer available online. Here’s a few similar options:

They work like this: You choose to click on an affiliate link on my website and make a purchase. Depending on my relationship with that company you just purchased from–I earn either a small percentage or a fixed amount for “referring” you to the company.
I only refer you to products and brands that I have used in the past or are currently using and that I like the quality of. In some cases, products are discontinued and I find a substitution. This is usually only for kitchen gadgets but sometimes companies stop making ingredients too!
