One thing I’ve learned while following the THM plan is that I feel more satisfied after eating an on-plan snack than if I’d eaten a more conventional, high-sugar treat. These cheesecake balls were delicious, and after enjoying a few that were freshly prepared, I popped the remainder into the freezer, where I grabbed one whenever I needed a snack or a little pick-me-up.
THM Recipes: Peanut Butter Cheesecake Balls
Making new THM recipes is a great way to experiment in the kitchen and learn more about flavors that satisfy without adding a ton of unnecessary things into your diet. Since sugar is a no-no on this diet, I have learned all about satisfying my taste buds with alternatives like the THM Sweet Blend. I am surprised by how well these peanut butter cheesecake balls help keep me satisfied without traditional sugar.
- 1/2 cup sugar-free peanut butter
- 8-ounce package cream cheese
- 1/4 cup THM Sweet Blend
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Freeze the mixture for 30 minutes, then shape into balls. Place them back into the freezer for another 30 minutes. Grab one whenever your sweet tooth kicks in.
After labeling, I store these in small freezer containers, or grab a couple snack-size bags and freeze them in batches of 2 or 3. Double bag them if you plan to store for long term. Otherwise, they will be fine in single bags for short term storage in the freezer. A single batch won’t last for long in our freezer since the kids enjoy them so much. My children, from the 3-year-old up to the 12-year-old, thought these were delicious.
Adding more THM recipes to your menu plan is a great way to cut out unnecessary sugar and enjoy healthier options the entire family will love. A special dessert treat like these is something you don’t have to feel guilt about sharing with your children after school or as a dessert after dinner.
