Here at Sugar-Free Sprinkles, we always have blocks and blocks of cream cheese on hand for recipe development. It’s one of our staple ingredients, and for a good reason. Cream cheese makes our desserts creamy and dense, and we use it in everything from cheesecakes, to squares, to pies, and everything in between. In addition, it’s an incredibly low carbohydrate ingredient, making it a perfect match for keto diet recipes. And we have a list of our best keto desserts with cream cheese that we think you have to try.
Can you eat cream cheese on the keto diet?
Soft cheeses like cream cheese are low-carb and keto diet-friendly foods.
1 oz of cream cheese contains 2 g of protein, 9g of fat, and just 1g of net carbs; a GREAT keto nutritional profile.
What cream cheese has the lowest carbs?
One of the lowest carb cream cheeses you can use is original Philadelphia cream cheese. If you watch your carbs, avoid low-fat cream cheeses because fillers increase the carbohydrate profile.
