Can you think of a more perfect treat for Valentine’s Day than this recipe for Keto Red Velvet Heart-Shaped Cheese Ball? This sweet treat has all the flavors of red velvet cake without the food coloring as it gets its bright pink hue from natural beet root powder!
Prep Time: 15 minutes + 1 hour to chill in the fridge
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
12 ounces plain cream cheese, cut in cubes
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut in cubes
1 cups Keto confectioners’ sweetener
½ cup Keto granulated brown sweetener
1 ¾ cup almond flour
⅛ teaspoon fine sea salt
1 tablespoon beet root powder
1 cup Keto white chocolate chips
Place cream cheese in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until very creamy. Add the butter and pulse again until very cream.
Add the remaining ingredients, one at a time, until they are all fully incorporated in the mixture, and it is pink in color, after you have added the beet root powder.
Remove from the food processor bowl and place in a mixing bowl in the fridge to chill for about an hour. Once it is chilled, remove from the fridge and form a ball of it with your hands and place it on a piece of parchment or wax paper. Flatten it out a bit, so that it is about 4” in height. Use a butter knife to slice a triangle out of it and discard (or snack on) the triangle of cheese removed. Use the butter knife to smooth out the perimeter of the cheese to create a heart shape.
Press Keto white chocolate chips into the heart-shaped cheese, so that they stick to the mixture.
When ready to serve, arrange on a board or serving platter, with your favorite Keto snacks, such as fresh berries, dark chocolate, cheeses, meats, and slices fruits and veggies.
Serve between 24 and store any leftovers in an airtight container on the countertop for up to 1 week.
