Is Cream Cheese Keto?
First things first, is cream cheese keto? Being that the entire post is about keto desserts with cream cheese, you can definitely have cream cheese on a low carb or ketogenic diet!
That being said, not all cream cheese is treated the same. Be SURE to check the carbs and nutritional info on the back of the package to make sure it fits with your macros. Low fat cream cheese is higher in carbs than full-fat cream cheese, so be sure to get the full-fat kind.
Our favorite brand is Philadelphia Cream Cheese, which has LESS THAN 1 net carb per serving! Some less expensive brands add fillers to bring the price down, which can often pack in hidden carbs, so we suggest buying the higher quality brands when they're on sale and stocking up.
If you've wondered if you could have cream cheese on a keto diet, you'll be thrilled to learn that it's actually one of the best options for making low carb and keto-friendly desserts.

Cream Cheese Keto Recipes FAQs
How Long Does Cream Cheese Last?
Unopened cream cheese usually lasts for about 3-4 weeks past the expiration date printed on the packaging when stored in the refrigerator. Once opened, it should be eaten within two weeks. If you notice any signs of mold or if it smells bad, toss it.
Can I Freeze Cream Cheese?
Yes, you can freeze cream cheese, but it can change the texture. Once frozen and thawed, cream cheese becomes more crumbly and less creamy, which won’t work in recipes like frostings or cheesecake but it’ll still be good in cooked dishes.
What Can You Add to Cream Cheese to Thin It Out?
To thin out cream cheese, you can add liquids like milk, heavy cream, or a touch of water. Start by adding a small amount and mix well, gradually adding more until you get your desired consistency. For savory dishes, you can also use broth or stock.
