Cream cheese is a type of cheese spread available abroad in most supermarkets. Since it is not very easily available in India, I have made it using fresh low fat milk.


Being made from low fat milk and curds, this cream cheese is absolutely fat free and can be relished without any guilt even by diabetics with high cholesterol levels.


Use this cream cheese to make delectable desserts or even to make delectable dips to serve at parties along with mixed vegetable crudites .
