See how to make your Homemade Cream Cheese delicious and creamy with the ingredients and step-by-step instructions below.


  • 1 liter of whole milk

  • 1 cup of cream

  • 1 tablespoon of butter

  • 1 teaspoon of salt

  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar or lemon juice

Preparation mode

  • In a pan, add the milk and heat over medium heat until it almost boils. Do not let it boil completely.
  • Turn off the heat and add the white vinegar or lemon juice to the milk. Stir gently and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes. This will curdle the milk and form curds.
  • After the resting time, the milk should have curdled, forming small lumps. If necessary, add more vinegar or lemon juice and stir until the curds are completely formed.
  • Place a thin cloth or muslin over a large bowl and pour the contents of the pan onto the cloth. The whey will drain, leaving the curd clumps on the cloth.
  • Join the ends of the cloth and make a package. Hang the packet over the bowl to drain the remaining whey for another 1-2 hours.
  • After draining well, transfer the curd lumps to a food processor. Add the cream, butter and salt. Process until you obtain a creamy and homogeneous consistency.
  • Transfer the homemade cream cheese to an airtight container and refrigerate. Let it cool before consuming.
