Use Fat Free or Lower Fat Cream Cheese

Tip of the Day:

Use fat free or lower fat cream cheese in recipes that call for cream cheese. Philadelphia makes really good Fat Free Cream Cheese and lower fat cream cheese. They are definitely worth a try.

I like to use them in recipes, especially ones that have other strong flavors. Recipes for foods that have lighter more subtle flavors may change with the substitutions, but I still recommend trying it. You might find that the substitution isn’t evident or the new flavor is just as good. What you save in fat and calories is well worth the experimentation.
