Cream cheese at home
Oh, we know how costly is cream cheese ! Only because cream cheese is so delicious, and can be used in various low carb desserts, sweet and savoury fat bombs; here I made cream cheese at home which resembles the Philapadelphia cream cheese and tried many desserts with this homemade one. I make a batch of 1 kilo and store it in the fridge for 2 weeks. Feel free to add herbs, spices or even crushed berries to make flavour of your own.

  2. Take a blender / mixer. Add the crumbled paneer and cream with a pinch of salt

From homemade paneer/cottage cheese
  1. Bring the full fat milk to a boil
  2. Add the lemon juice or vinegar. The fat within the milk starts to curdle. Let all the fat separate from the whey (liquid)
  3. Take a cheese cloth and drain the whey
  4. Squeeze the liquid out and let it stand for 45 minutes so that whey is completely drained and you get full fat and low in carb - cream cheese. This is your paneer .
  5. Take a blender, add the paneer and cream with salt. Blend till smooth.
Recipe Notes

Net carbs of the cream cheese made from scratch will vary and depend on the separation of whey and fats.
