Cherry Cheesecake Bites
For how decadent these bites are, most people would never guess how easy they are to make! These cherry cheesecake bites are slightly sweet, tangy, tart, and rich. Their vibrant color makes this low-sugar dessert a great option for the holidays or special occasions.
I originally made this recipe dairy-free and used Miyoko's butter and cream cheese, however, it can be made with regular cream cheese and butter.
If you do not have monk fruit extract, you can use the equivalent of about 2.5 teaspoons of any sugar-free sweetener you have on hand.

- ½ cup freeze-dried cherries
- 10-12 drops of monk fruit extract
Directions for cherry cheesecake bites
- Leave cream cheese and butter out on the counter to soften for about 30 minutes.
- Measure out freeze-dried cherries and pour into a bowl. Using the back of a mug, measuring cup, or smaller bowl, crush the cherries until it turns into a powder with smaller chunks.
- Add cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and monk fruit to the bowl. Mix, and then mix in coconut flour.
- Grab plate or baking sheet, or anything flat that can fit in your freezer.
- Grab a regular spoon, and scoop a spoonful of the mixture. Use your hands to form a smooth ball. Lay on a plate or baking sheet. The mixture should be equally divided into 5 equal balls.
- Place the cherry cheesecake bites in the freezer for at least 30 minutes before eating. The bites can be stored in the freezer.
