Ghost Poo aka Cream Cheese Clouds

Cream Cheese Clouds aka Frozen Cheesecake Bites


Ghost Poo (see what I did there since it's almost Halloween?!), aka Cream Cheese Clouds, aka Frozen Cheesecake Bites!  Fun and yummy and a great way to grab a little sweet dessert or snack.  I pulled this off of Linda's page as Cream Cheese Clouds.  My father (also a low carber!) came up with the Ghost Poo because he's funny like that.  I wrote the recipe below as basic Cream Cheese Clouds or Frozen Cheesecake Bites but if you'd like to swirl them to make them Ghost Poo, just spoon the mixture into a sandwich bag and then cut one of the end tips of the bag off to make a home pastry bag.  You can mix up the flavors by using different extracts or adding some unsweetened cocoa powder, a bit of pumpkin puree, etc.  Fun! *INDUCTION FRIENDLY*

5 STARS
24 clouds
1 net carb per cloud/serving

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granular Splenda (or sweetener of choice)
1/2 tsp vanilla (I used 1/4 tsp lemon and 1/4 tsp vanilla)

Beat everything with an electric mixer until fluffy.  Drop by bite-size spoonfuls onto a wax paper-lined baking sheet to make 24 clouds.  (or spoon into sandwich bag, cut the tip off to make a pastry bag)  Freeze until firm, at least 1 hour.  Store in the freezer and eat frozen.

Once frozen, these store in the refrigerator just fine.

  7. ok so I made these last night. But I don't think they came out right. it says to mix until fluffy mine never got fluffy it came out as more of a cake batter consistency. Is this right or did I do something wrong? And if so what do you think I did wrong?

  10. I made them for the first time tonight and found they are gritty, due to the sweetener. I think I will use a liquid sweetener next time.

    1. I think if you use granular splenda, it melds better in the mix I found.

    2. These are amazing!
      I use extra vanilla in everything and I mixed the powdered Stevia into the vanilla before starting the fluffing.

  20. Looking to make these this weekend. Without calculatING figured I'd ask first. How many grams of fat it eat one?

  21. do you think that I could add maple extract for flavor ?

  22. Hi, I couldn't imagine how these were a carb per piece (or myself eating only one piece at a time!!) So I did the macros using neufchatel cheese instead of regular cream cheese and Swerve as the sweetener, and came up with 1g carb per 3 pieces (saying 8 servings). So am going to try making them with these ingredients. Will let you know.

  25. I'm disappointed. Used the vanilla and lemon extract and it tastes like rubbing alcohol:( What happened? And cheesecake is my very favorite dessert. Help. Can I save them somehow or just chuck them?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I wonder if liquid stevia would work??

    ReplyDelete
  27. I sprinkled unsweetened flaked coconut on these. They are da bomb!!!

  28. I just made these tonight and they taste grainy like sugar ( i used swerve) is it supposed to be like this or should I have beat them more??

    ReplyDelete
  29. So yummy! Used 1/3 cup splenda and added some almond flavoring.

  30. I am going to try processing the sweetener to a fine powder to prevent grittiness. They sound like a delicious treat!thanks for sharing

  31. These are almost too good!!! I made them with lemon flavoring and my husband and I both love them. The biggest problem will be not eating too many!

  37. I made them last night. When they were mostly set I ground up about 14 roasted/ salted almonds and dabbed the Little Ghost poos in the crumbs to create a crust.
