Can you even handle a Paleo cheese ball? When we began our journey back in 2014 we’d never have imagined this could be a reality. Kite Hills Foods has made so many recipes a reality for us. Their entire line has been life changing!
When it’s the holidays, we want a cheese ball dang it! So this year, it was time. Couple things to note:
- Kite Hill cream cheese is not as firm as a standard cream cheese. This is why a little bit of freezer time after mixing it together is needed.
- This cheese ball is totally customizable to suit your taste buds.
- Do you have to shape it into a ball? Nope! You can mix it up and spoon into a little serving dish and top with a little coating mix.
Alrighty, there’s really not much to this Paleo cheese ball. Mix it up, let it get some fridge time for optimal shaping before serving then enjoy! We really hope you serve it with our new PIE CRUST CRACKERS made with our PIE CRUST recipe. Or you can also purchase our pie crust in a mix!
We’re still in total disbelief that it’s available via LEGIT BREAD COMPANY. It’s been a whirlwind holiday season coming up with so many fun ways to use it. There are a few links below to those recipes, as it’s not just for pie!

paleo cheese ballCourse: AppetizersCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
a Paleo cheese ball that is completely dairy free, but your taste buds won’t know!
- cheese ball
8 oz Kite Hill cream cheese
½ tsp Balanced Bites Trifecta blend (or garlic powder or seasoning of choice)
⅓ cup green onions, thinly sliced (green & white parts)
½ cup sliced raw almonds, finely chopped (or nut of choice)
½ cup finely chopped parsley (or cilantro, mint or chives)
¼ tsp Balanced Bites Trifecta blend (or garlic powder)
- Pour any liquid in the cream cheese container out, it’s not needed and could impair being able to help the cheese ball maintain its shape.
- Place cream cheese in a medium mixing bowl and add the sliced green onions and spice blend. Mix this all together with a hand mixer until fully combined. Place this mixture back into the container and set it in the freezer for 20 minutes.
- While the cheese firms up, prepare the coating. Combine coating ingredients on a cutting board and finely dice them all together to combine. Lay a piece of plastic wrap down on a flat surface and lay coating in the middle.
- Once cheese has firmed up, remove from the freezer and place it in the middle of the coating mixture. Carefully shape into a ball, rolling gently to coat. Feel free to sprinkle the coating with your fingers and also use the plastic to help roll the ball.
- When you have the entire ball coated, wrap it up using the plastic tightly so that it will hold it’s shape. Set it in the fridge for a minimum for 4 hours or overnight. When ready to serve, remove from plastic and place on serving dish and ENJOY!
