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.

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

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

  21. 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.

  24. 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?

  25. I wonder if liquid stevia would work??
