Recipe Ingredient Breakdown
The keto diet is known for reducing your cravings and keeping you full for longer periods of time. However, when you’re dealing with long, busy days, it can be difficult not to reach for convenient (and ubiquitous) high-carb snacks.
That’s why having a keto meal plan is so important to succeeding — when you know what to buy and how to keep your fridge stocked with keto-friendly foods, you’ll be less likely to reach for those items that will kick you out of ketosis.
Plus, as you continue to build your arsenal of recipes, it’ll make your life much easier and your diet more exciting.
Before you get started in the kitchen to make these peaches and cream fat bombs, you may as well get a little background on why these keto diet snacks are actually good for you. Here’s a quick breakdown of all the good stuff that’s inside this simple recipe.
There’s a reason why peaches are the third most popular fruit grown in America. Incredibly juicy, sweet, and refreshing, this fuzzy summer fruit not only tastes great, but it has plenty of health benefits. But are peaches good for a low-carb diet?
An average size peach contains[*]:
- 15 grams of total carbs
- 2 grams of fiber
- 13 grams of sugar
As you can see, a single peach contains 13 grams of net carbs, which is a bit more than you’re going to want to blow on a single piece of fruit. However, in moderation — and as part of a healthy keto recipe — a few bites of peaches are just fine.Learn all about fruits and ketosis in this essential guide to keto-friendly fruit.

Butter needs no introduction in the keto world. This ketogenic diet staple is loved by keto diet followers for being a high-fat food that adds a creamy consistency to any dish.
Just like olive oil and coconut oil, butter is one of the main cooking options in a keto diet and is considered a healthy fat. When added to veggies in your keto meals, it boosts the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins from these foods.
But not all butters are created equal. When making these peaches and cream fat bombs, make sure you’re using grass-fed butter. Read more about why grass-fed butter is the best keto option.
Cream cheese is not only a great source of protein on keto, but it also delivers a substantial amount of vitamin A[*].
A study conducted by the University of Florence has shown eating protein- and calcium-rich parmesan cheese may help boost bone health[*].
An excellent addition to both sweet and savory dishes, it’s no wonder cream cheese is one of the most used ingredients in low-carb snacks and paleo recipes.
Here are a few delicious keto diet snacks you can make with cream cheese:
Monk fruit hails from Southeast Asia and has been used in the region for centuries. However, it’s only in more recent decades that Western cultures have recognized this powerful fruit.
A healthy alternative to sugar and low-carb sweeteners like xylitol, monk fruit is a zero-carb sweetener. That means it has no sugars, which is ideal for a keto diet. Incredibly, despite having zero sugar, it’s still 250 times sweeter than sugar.
Monk fruit has been used for years in Traditional Chinese Medicine to relieve sore throats and reduce phlegm, and a 2011 study demonstrated that this sweet-tasting fruit has anti-inflammatory properties and may help keep blood sugar stable[*].
