Whipped Cream Cheese?

I cannot find Philadelphia "Whipped" cream cheese in "Fat Free". I bought some Fat Free and am looking on ways to make it into a "Whipped" version. I do not know what to add to the fat free cream cheese in order to whip it; fat free milk? Thanks.

I believe the whipped cream cheese is simply that - whipped cream cheese, nothing added. The company is simple "saving" you the whipping step when they sell the whipped product.

Soften the cream cheese (leave it out of the refrigerator for about 1 hour) and beat it until fluffy. If you have a stand up mixer with a whisk attachment, this is best.

Read the label. Surficants and preservatives are added.

I am so curious why it needs to be whipped ;-) At any rate, just hand whisk or beat with an egg beater with a couple of tablespoons of non-fat or low-fat milk :-)

OK first, in order to make your cream cheese light and airy like what is in the market you must first add air (to make it light and fluffy). I you add ordinary milk it will only make it thin. i do not think that is very appealing.

You need low fat whipping cream. Whipping cream doubles when whipped by allowing air this produces a very light and of course airy product. For example, if you want to make homemade whipped cream you would add confectioners sugar to heavy whipping cream. one sm. carton of cream will produce a lot of whipped cream.

So go with the low fat whipping cream or low fat heavy whipping cream. Thanks, Carla

My suggesting is to stop using reduced fat,low fat ,fat free products. Full fat is actually better for you. It has more flavor and is more satiating plus when they take fat out they add in sugar such high fructose corn syrup, hfc,sodium such as natural flavors which can be hidden as msg for flavor.

The ingredients list is far more important than the cal,sugar,fat,carbs. New research shows that's all a marketing scam. Like the front of the package. Gluten free,fat free, it's all about marketing. Stop believing the old hype go back to the way people grew up eating real food.

Amen! People have been led to believe Low Fat is related to weight loss ... its not. Its all the sugar that gets added in. Go with Janets suggestion. The whipped cream cheese is excellent.

I agree with not wanting chemicals to take the place of fat in my food so reading labels is uber-important. Skim milk and most low-fat dairy products do not add chemicals, just remove the cream and add water.

Full fat products are not healthy for an obese person trying to loose weight but we still need to eat as cleanly as possible!
