I have a sweet tooth that seems to be growing and growing over the years. So when I want to lose weight it’s the first thing that I try to control. Total denial of sweets does not work for me and that is why I make keto snacks like these peanut butter cream cheese bites. They are super easy to make and nice to have on hand in the freezer so I can have one or two in the evening.

These are a few of my low carb sweets recipes that I like to keep on hand. Most of the time I keep them in the freezer to keep and so that I don’t indulge too much.
If you are looking for the Weight Watcher recipe
This is really a recipe redo. I made a Weight Watcher recipe when I first started my blog but this is how I made them now that I’m following a low carb diet. If you are looking for that old recipe you can find it at the bottom of the page.
However for this recipe, each one has only 1.1 net carbs and they are pretty big so you wouldn’t want to eat more than one or two at the most.
Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Recipe
All you do is whip your cream in a standing mixer until it’s light and fluffy. Then add the rest of the ingredients and mix until they are well combined.
Use a silicone spatula and spoon the mixture into a silicone tray and freeze. The silicone makes it easy to pop out when then are frozen. Once frozen I then put them in a freezer bag and grab one when I want a treat. I like this silicone mold because the squares are big but not too big for treats like these.

A note about PB2 peanut butter powder
I like to us PB2 in recipes because it has less carbs, fat and calories than peanut butter. PB2 is a powdered peanut butter and its great to throw in shakes and smoothies as well as low carb keto snacks like this one. In my opinion it doesn’t taste like peanut butter when you add water to reconstitute it but it is good in recipes. If you are looking for more PB2 keto recipes, try my chocolate peanut butter freezer candy. They are addicting!

Older Weight Watcher Recipe for Creamy peanut butter cubes (1pt)
Note this is the recipe I made back in May 2o14. At the time I calculated it to have 1 Weight Watchers point. However their systems change all the time and I am not sure if it still has only 1 point on their newer systems. So please calculate for yourself.
- 4 tablespoons low carb cream cheese
- 2 tablespoons non fat greek yogurt
- 3 tablespoons PB2
- 2 tablespoons Swerve sweetener
- 1 cup whipped topping, fat free
Soften cream cheese then add to a bowl.
Add to the cream cheese the yogurt, PB2, and sweetner. Whip or cream all ingredients.
Gently fold in the whipped topping.
Pour into molds and freeze. I used a large ice cube tray.
Once frozen, take out of molds and put in a freeze bag.
This made 10 servings for me and according to my calculations each serving is only 1 WW point.
