How To Freeze Cream Cheese


How to Freeze Cream Cheese:

  1. Keep cream cheese in its original container or packaging. Wrap the container in plastic wrap or freezer paper and then place it in a freezer bag. If you plan on using your cream cheese as icing or dip, you can mix it with whipping cream or heavy cream prior to freezing. A bond will form between the water and dairy fats, which will help the cream cheese retain more of its creamy texture.
  2. Write the date on the bag with a permanent marker.
  3. Place the cream cheese on the middle shelf of your freezer to keep it at an even temperature. Store for up to 5 months in the freezer. However, the less time cream cheese spends in the freezer, the better the results.
  4. Thaw cream cheese in the refrigerator overnight.
  5. Put thawed cream cheese in a mixer or stir it vigorously with a whisk to help reduce graininess and clumps. You can also try microwaving the cream cheese in 20-second intervals to help return it as close as possible to its regular consistency.
