Whipped Cream Cheese (Homemade)

Total Time
Prep 2 mins
Cook 5 mins

I found this recipe scribbled in my mum's cookbook, and I'm sure it works pretty well ;)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 240 g cream cheese, softened (Low-fat, light, nonfat, regular, anything you wish)
  • 2 -3 tablespoons milk


  1. NOTE: you can try softening the cream cheese in your microwave, or leave it out on your kitchen top for a while (about an hour or two).
  2. Using your mixer, beat the cream cheese until whipped.
  3. At this point, you can gradually add in the milk until you get your desired "whipped" consistency.

This worked really well! I had frozen some cream cheese and found that when I thawed it; it separated. So I used this recipe to combine it which really well. I used half and half and milk. I ended up using about 4 tablespoons because of how crumbled it was. Anyways this made a delicious cream cheese, thanks!

I am getting ready to make dips and spreads for my New Year's celebration. I came across several recipes that call for whipped cream cheese. I had the regular blocks of cream cheese on hand and was curious if I could make my own whipped cream, other than just whipping the blocks I already had on hand. I found this recipe and it worked really well with half and half milk. I will try it later with heavy cream, which should be even lighter. Thanks, sometime the best things are so simple.
