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.
There are 2 ways to pepare it and the time required to make it depend on the paneer- store-bought or homemade.
1 litre of full fat milk makes about 200-250 grams of cream cheese.
