Keto Cream cheese Recipes

From sweet to savory and everything in between, cream cheese is one of those ingredients that lends itself to all sorts of delicious recipes.

I could easily sit with a tub and spoon and have that as my snack. Or my dinner, in fact. But that would be making poor use of its amazing versatility.

Instead, I decided to see just how many different keto recipes I could find that used cream cheese as one of the ingredients, and start trying them out one by one.

I bit off more than I could chew with this one – there were hundreds of recipes. I could easily share 327 with you today, but I decided to narrow it down to these 12 keto cream cheese recipes.

I used to love eating creamy fudge, but they are basically little brown sugar blocks.

Sugar-free fudge sounds like it shouldn’t work, but surprisingly, it does. And quite well.

Many sauces are thickened up using flour, but this unfortunately makes then not suitable for keto recipes.

Luckily, cheese comes to the rescue! (Doesn’t it always?)

Using onion powder instead of fresh onion in the Cheesy Low Carb Creamed Spinach also lowers the carb count somewhat.

I love sushi. Especially California rolls! Sushi is a difficult type of food to recreate as low carb, because rice is such an integral part of the flavor.

This recipe for Keto Sushi has a pretty good take on a low-carb version though.

It skips the imitation crab (surprisingly high in carbs) and uses cucumber, cream cheese, and avocado for the filling.

Cream Cheese Cookies

The coconut flour used in the Cream Cheese Cookies makes it low carb, while the cream cheese adds a delicious flavor.

The dough is quite soft and gooey, so when you are making these take into account that you will need to put it in the fridge for a bit to firm up.

Once they are baked, these cookies are deliciously soft and chewy. If you prefer a firmer cookie though, put them in the fridge for a day.
