Low Carb Cheesecake Fluff

With all of this crazy coronavirus going on, with people being required to self quarantine , I decided to go through our fridge, freezers and pantry to see what food we actually have. I found 3 bags of opened rice!!! I don’t have a clue how that happened and I don’t even eat rice.

While cleaning out my fridge. I found some blueberries and strawberries on the edge of going bad. I also had a container of blackberries that were perfectly ripe. I had some heavy cream that was going to go bad next week and I had a few packages of cream cheese. I wanted to come up with something that would use these ingredients before they went bad, and I think I was successful.

This cheesecake fluff is so simple and delicious. I plan on  making this for get-togethers and as often as possible while fresh berries are in season. This is a trim healthy mama s recipe. It is on the heavy side, so would be perfect after a light dinner.

I hope you and your family are finding ways to make the most of this time. This can be a time of lots of family memories. Dust off those games, learn new card games, watch some old classic movies. Have the kids help you in the kitchen, make some new recipes with them. This can be scary with all of the unknowns, but we can try and find the positives in this.

    This was good! I used strawberries, mulberries, and pecans. I think the pecans gave it some much needed texture.
    The recipe process is a bit clunky. I think next time I’ll add the sweetener and extracts to just the cream cheese, instead of some in the whipped cream and some in the cream cheese.

      Thanks so much for the feedback. I really need to update the recipe and change it to what I do now. It’s simpler and faster to make. I’ll have to try the pecans.

    Delicious! I made this for my family last night and everyone enjoyed it! I used a frozen berry mix that I thawed and drained- it worked well. Thumbs up from all 7 who ate it 🙂

    This was really good! 2 things….
    1. For those unfamiliar with “whipping” heavy cream (like me) it is best to use a whisk. Also it does take about 5 minutes or so to get it a thick consistency. I kept thinking I was doing something wrong because it wasn’t getting thick. One, I used a paddle to mix it and two, I wasn’t patient. Lol.
    2. What is an acceptable serving size of this stuff? I could literally eat the whole bowl!

    OMGoodness!! I just made this and it is divine!!! I can’t stop eating it…..I’m going to eat this whole bowl myself right now!!! I think I’ll add some collagen or protein powder next time so it can just be my meal! LOL!! Also, I think I’m going to sub 1/3 of the cream cheese with ricotta cheese next time bc I looove the flavor that adds in traditional cheesecake. Oh my y’all I’ve found heaven!! Thank you Jennifer for sharing your creativity with us!
    I have not found many THM desserts that we actually like and I’ve written off all the cakes and things using any type of flour. Shakes and ice-creams are at the top of our dessert list but now this takes 1st place….my my my….

      Penny, I am so happy you love it!! I know that it is hard to find THM desserts that fill that old texture and flavor. This really is a family favorite. Thanks for the reply and rating.
