When fresh strawberries are in season and a craving strikes, strawberry fat bombs are the perfect sweet treat for a keto diet.
Even better, the coconut manna used in these easy keto fat bombs is a great way to sneak in more healthy fats – especially when you need a dairy free fat bomb.
But are strawberries keto? Keep reading to learn how these creamy fat bombs fit into a low-carb diet.
Are Strawberries Keto Friendly?
The good news is strawberry fat bombs are completely keto legal. Even better news? You only need two ingredients for this strawberry and coconut butter recipe!
Using whole foods that are naturally low in carbs, like strawberries, is a great way to incorporate more real food into a ketogenic diet. While you shouldn’t nosh on the entire container, eating a few keto strawberry fat bombs can actually help you burn more fat.
Wait, how can strawberries and coconut manna help you burn more fat? I’m so happy you asked!
You need to eat plenty of healthy fat to trigger ketosis – usually even more than you realize. Since strawberry creams are also dairy free fat bombs, this low carb diet recipe can help those who are sensitive to dairy sneak more fats into a high fat diet.
Strawberry Creams Ingredients
This strawberry fat bombs dairy free recipe only calls for two simple ingredients: strawberries and coconut butter.
For the strawberries, you can choose fresh or frozen. Since strawberries appear in the number one spot on the dirty dozen list, do your best to use organic strawberries. Remember – less toxins means easier fat burning!
The other ingredient used in this bite-sized dessert is coconut butter. If you’ve never used this creamy dairy alternative before, you may wonder – what is coconut butter, what is coconut manna, and why do you keep swapping these terms?
Coconut manna is simply shredded coconut that’s turned into a creamy butter. That’s why it’s also called coconut butter. You can use it in similar ways as other nut butters, including in these delicious treats.
While you can make coconut manna at home with shredded coconut and a high powered electric mixer, I prefer to keep easy fat bombs easy – so I pick up a jar of Nutiva coconut manna.
Where’s the Keto Friendly Sweetener?
Most low carb recipes use keto sweeteners to help you get your sweet tooth fix. The problem with using too many low carb sweeteners is it can lead to even more sweet cravings, and not always for the keto friendly version of your favorite treat.
Plus, some artificial sweeteners can still raise blood glucose levels, even when they’re marketed as a zero calorie food.
That’s why I make most fat bombs without artificial sweetener. When you train your palate to go without your favorite sweetener, the natural sugar found in the strawberry puree is usually sweet enough.
How to Make Strawberry Creams
Easy fat bomb recipes don’t get any easier than this strawberry and coconut butter recipe.
If you choose frozen strawberries, start by thawing the strawberries on the counter. You can line a mini cupcake pan with liners while you wait. A silicone mold also works if you don’t have a mini cupcake pan.
Once the strawberries are thawed, use a blender to blend into a strawberry puree and set aside.
Next, melt the coconut manna in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Since coconut butter burns easily, it’s important to stir the coconut oil continuously with a whisk as it melts.
Once melted, pour the pureed strawberries into the melted coconut butter. Use the whisk to combine well.
Finally, spoon the fat bomb mixture into the lined muffin tin in a 1 tablespoon increment until all tins are filled. Place the strawberry fat bombs into the freezer until firm. This should take around 30 minutes.
Store strawberry creams in the fridge in an airtight container for up to two weeks. For a longer shelf life, store this mini dessert in the freezer and take a few out as you’re ready to enjoy this keto snack.
Don’t allow them to sit at room temperature for too long since they will melt.
Each strawberry fat bomb has 2.9 grams of total carbs, or 1.5 grams of net carbs – which makes these a great option on a keto diet.
While how many strawberry cream fat bombs you can eat depends on your personalized macros, most people can get away with at least 1-2 fat bombs per day. Stick to a serving size and then have another if you still feel hungry.
Always taste the batter of keto fat bombs without sweetener prior to freezing. That way you can add liquid stevia, or another keto-friendly sweetener before it’s too late.
If you want to see if removing sweeteners from your plan helps you burn more fat, use the trick we teach our Keto Decoded members: just use a little less sweetener each time you make a new recipe. This trick can help your palate adjust overtime to less sweetened foods – which actually makes sticking to keto easier.
Most health food stores, like Sprouts or Whole Foods, carry coconut butter. You can also order coconut manna from Amazon, or save money with keto ingredients at Thrive Market.
There are plenty of keto strawberry recipes that work well since most berries are lower in sugar than other fruit. Always check the macros to make sure the remaining ingredients your strawberry keto recipes don’t put you out of your daily carb range.
The coconut manna benefits on a keto diet is that many people are sensitive to dairy products, especially cream cheese. This creamy alternative is a great way to sneak in more healthy fats without dairy.

Quick question, can you use regular butter, because I can’t have coconut butter? Trying to find recipes that works with my Diabetes. Please get back with me as soon as possible.
I haven’t tried these with butter before. I’m not sure how they would taste. Heavy whipping cream would probably be a better choice. Freeze them and let me know how it works.
