When it comes to Keto and Low-Carb recipes, cream cheese has gained a lot of popularity as the go-to ingredient. It is very low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein, and high in fat, making it a staple in a keto diet. Cream cheese is soft in texture and mild in flavour, so it is very versatile.
As you will see in the roundup below, cream cheese is often used in baking to make keto alternatives to bread, pancakes, muffins and so on. Its smooth and creamy texture adds a certain heartiness to food that leaves you feeling satiated. It’s also super affordable, making it easily accessible for everyone.
So whether you’re after breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, or snack ideas, you will find some tasty food inspiration here! I also have a link below on how to make your own cream cheese at home. Please let me know your favourite low-carb cream cheese recipes in the comments below!
