Today I'm sharing a low carb, sugar free dessert that tastes as good as it looks! It's so easy to make and requires just a few ingredients. It's my Low Carb Strawberry Fluff!
Perhaps when you hear the word "fluff" it brings to mind something that your granny used to make using Cool Whip and other sugar laden ingredients.
Yep, I've made and eaten some of those.
But Leo and I have broken up with sugar. We've been following a low carb diet for a few months now.
We still get cravings and want to treat ourselves now and then and this dessert does that.
And it totally fits into our low carb eating plan (except for those chocolate covered strawberries which are a true indulgence!)
Holidays and special occasions can be hard because you don't want to feel deprived. This low carb strawberry fluff will satisfy all those yearnings and cravings.
How to make low carb Strawberry Fluff
You only need 3 basic ingredients to make low carb strawberry fluff.
- cream cheese
- heavy cream
- sugar free jello
I used my stand mixer to mix everything, but you could use a hand mixer as well. If using a stand mixer, use the paddle beater to beat the cream cheese until it's smooth and creamy.
Leave the cream cheese in the bowl, and pour the heavy cream on top of it. Switch to the wire beater and whip the heavy cream until peaks begin to form.
The cream cheese will still be underneath the cream but will gradually incorporate with the cream.
Dump the whole box of strawberry Jello into the cream cheese and heavy cream mixture and mix on low speed.
At this point, the mixture will be quite thick so you will have to stop the mixer, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and even scrap the mixture off the wire beater and resume mixing.
The dry Jello will eventually spread out into the mixture and it will turn a gorgeous shade of pink.
Storing and Serving
You can chill it in the refrigerator or serve it immediately. It is so yummy and tastes a bit like cheesecake but without all the carbs! It really helps us stay on track without feeling deprived.
I melted a few of these dark chocolate wafers in the microwave and then dipped my strawberries into it. Now, this chocolate is NOT sugar free and I really don't know a good substitute for it, but this small indulgence will not derail your diet that much.
Oh, yum! All the flavor without all the sugar! This low carb strawberry fluff will totally sweeten your Valentine! And if you'd prefer, strawberry cake, try this strawberry dump cake or this strawberry sfoglia cake using puff pastry. Both are unbelievably good strawberry desserts.
Low Carb Strawberry Fluff
A flavorful dessert without the carbs
- 1 16 ounce heavy whipping cream
- 1 8 ounce cream cheese (softened)
- 1 large box sugar free strawberry Jello
Using a stand or hand mixer, beat the cream cheese until soft and creamy.
Add the heavy whipping cream on top of the cream cheese and beat until soft peaks form.
Pour the entire box into the cream cheese and whipped cream mixture and mix on low.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and the beater and mix until all the Jello is incorporated into the mixture.
Serve immediately or chill in the refrigerator.
Optional: Garnish with chocolate dipped strawberries. I use Ghirardelli dark chocolate wafers which DO contain sugar. This has NOT been calculated in the nutritional label.

I made this for yesterday's Easter dinner and it was a hit! I'm going to try it with blueberries next time, if I can find blueberry jello! Thanks from Charleston 🙂
Thanks so much for coming back and giving your feedback on the recipe. I'm so glad you enjoyed it and the blueberry version sounds yummy, too!
Jane, this looks so good! I used to do low carb and lost a lot of weight...and then, a Hershey Kiss tempted me...it whispered sweet nothings to me and I caved and I've been meaning to get back to eating this way. Your beautiful fluffy dessert has definitely inspired me!
How awesome that this yummy dessert is low carb and sugar free. I am always looking for low-carb desserts, as desserts are my downfall. Thank you so much for sharing this yummy recipe.
I can't wait to try this! How beautiful it is in those goblets! I love how you are serving it! And topped with a chocolate covered strawberry!! Yum!
Jane this looks amazing!!! Seriously I was drooling and I love that it's low carb and low sugar! Perfection in a cup!
This sounds and looks amazing Jane! I can't wait to try it! I'm trying to break up with sugar, but it's hard...there are carbs in everything 🙁 Pinning!
With so many sweets around, it's really nice to have a low carb recipe to turn to. This looks and sounds fabulous, Jane. And those strawberries, too. Yes, please 🙂
This is a great idea! We're supposed to be on low carb too:( But recipes like this would make it less painful! I do think there's cocoa chips that are low suger, btw.
What a wonderful way to have a treat yet stay on your low-carb diet! Your fluff looks delicious and I know that it would be at hit at my house.

Oh thank you for this! I too have had to break up with sugar, and my dad is diabetic, so this will be great at Easter!

This sounds and looks so yummy, Jane. I've been trying to reduce my sugar intake and will add this recipe to my files. I love strawberry and cheesecake so this will satisfy that craving! Thanks for sharing!
Sounds delicious. I can’t wait to try it. Jean has been doing low carb for a couple of months now. He’s lost 23 lbs so far. We are constantly looking for a “sweet “ treat he can eat. Thank you for sharing! Love to you and Leo!
I have to try this! We have been trying to cut out our sugar since Jan 1. Not easy, but this sounds soooo good and might just seal the deal for something sweet for Valentine's! Thanks Jane! Hope you and Leo are doing well!
