Lemon Berry Keto Cream Cheese Dessert
This Easy Lemon Berry Keto Cream Cheese Dessert is one of my favorite “fluff” recipes. This light recipe is easy to make, and it tastes incredible with the sweet berry flavors combined with tangy lemon. This is one of our favorite low-carb desserts with cream cheese.
LEMON BERRY KETO CREAM CHEESE DESSERT
I’ve also seen many people comment in different keto groups that they can’t find keto desserts they enjoy.
The texture in keto baking is entirely different. If you haven’t had “the real stuff” in a while, you will enjoy keto treats. However, if this is your first week following a ketogenic eating plan, you will most likely not enjoy the keto treats that use keto-friendly flours until your body has detoxed the real thing.
That being said, I did find that even in my first week, I enjoyed these kinds of “fluff” desserts since they don’t contain any flour, and the texture is exactly like the full carb counterparts. I love Peanut Butter Fluff and Pumpkin Fluff, so I thought, why not stick with recipes that I know are amazing and that most people enjoy and make a couple of tweaks to make a keto fun dessert.
This keto cream cheese dessert is a simple and easy recipe to make.
- Whipping Cream & Cream Cheese – These ingredients are the base of this keto dessert recipe that is full of fat and low carb.
- Cream cheese – make sure that it’s softened for this recipe, or it will be lumpy.
- Monkfruit powdered – A keto-friendly sweetener that is used in place of confectioners sugar
- Berries – Berries are delicious low carb fruits that add incredible flavor to this keto cream cheese dessert
- Lemon Zest – just a little bit of lemon zest will go a long way for a perfect tang.
- Pure vanilla extract – helps bring out all of the flavors.
How to Make this Cream Cheese Dessert Keto:
Step 1: In a medium-sized bowl, mix the heavy whipping cream with a mixer on medium-high until it has doubled in size and begins to form large peaks.
Step 2: In a separate bowl, add softened cream cheese, Monkfruit powdered, strawberries, blueberries, lemon zest, and vanilla, and mix until it is smooth and the ingredients are mixed well.
Tip: If your cream cheese isn’t softened it will be chunky and the end product won’t be smooth.
Step 3: Combine the two mixtures in one bowl and beat until they are thoroughly mixed and smooth.
Step 4: Refrigerate and serve. (The longer you beat the Lemon Berry keto cream cheese dessert, it begins to turn a light pink color. That is when you know it’s ready to pop in the fridge so you can enjoy it later.)
Optional: Top with pecan pieces and unsweetened coconut
Tips for Making this Keto Cream cheese Dessert
When beating heavy whipping cream to stiff peaks, make sure your bowl and beaters are completely dry first. If there is any added moisture, it may prevent heavy whipping cream from doubling in size as it should.
- Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature and completely softened. Otherwise, you’ll have chunks of cream cheese in this strawberry keto cream cheese dessert.
- Fully ripened strawberries and blueberries work best for the most incredible depth of flavor.
- The longer you beat the Lemon Berry keto cream cheese dessert, it begins to turn a light pink color. That is when you know it’s ready to pop in the fridge so you can enjoy it later.
- It is so easy to whip up in just a few minutes. You can eat it right away. However, I feel like it is much better after being refrigerated overnight so that all of the flavors can merge.
How Many Net Carbs are in this recipe?
Sugar Alcohols from Lakanto Monkfruit Powdered are not included in the nutritional information since most do not count towards carbs. This Lemon Berry Keto Cream Cheese Dessert is 2g net carbs per serving. This recipe is divided evenly into 8 servings.
Can you enjoy this lemon berry keto cream cheese dessert frozen?
Sure! For a frozen treat, you can pop it in the freezer for an hour or so just before it freezes all the way through and it tastes like ice cream. I recommend using a cupcake pan with muffin liners, so freeze individual servings.
What are some other toppings that you can add to this simple keto dessert?
As long as it fits your keto lifestyle, you can add on whatever toppings you would like. I like to add a few more berries on top to give it an even fruitier taste. A few other ideas are below:
- Add other berries such as blackberries or raspberries
- Top with sugar-free chocolate chips
- Instead of lemon zest, add orange flavoring
- Mix unsweetened coconut in the mixture

Made this for a dinner party and everyone loved it. I made a blueberry sauce with swerve to top it instead of adding the fresh strawberries and blueberries and added some lemon juice for more lemon flavor and a little more heavy cream at the end to loosen it up a bit. Wonderful recipe!!
Sounds delish! So glad you all loved it.
It came out so delicious, but the consistency was very watery. More like a soup than a fluff! After sitting in the fridge for over 2 hours with no firming up, I tried the hand mixer again but it still didn’t change. Not sure what I did wrong but still super tasty.
It sounds like your heavy whipping cream did not reach stiff peaks to begin with. Make sure that your bowl is dry and you can even chill your bowl and beaters beforehand. It shouldn’t be watery at all.
Hi! I made this but it came out higher in carbs. What cream did you use? 😊
Sooo yummy though! Worth the extra carbs ❤️
Did you subtract the sugar alcohols in the sweetener? Most apps don’t do that automatically.
What app do you use?
I don’t use an app to track macros. I only count net carbs in my head.
I made the Keto Lemon Berry Fluff today. WOW!
I’m three weeks into the Keto way of life and needed something “sweet”.
Your website is great!
Awesome! SO glad you loved it.
Can Swerve confectioners or Swerve granulated be substituted for the powdered Monkfruit?
I’ve only tested as is but make sure it is a like sweetener. Confectioners for powdered.
I can find only a Stevia Blend (no time to order online). I can find granulated and liquid stevia but the powdered blend has Maltodextrin. Will this recipe work with granulated?
I am not sure what the texture would be like if you used the granular. The taste should be similar though.
Made it, finally. Amazing! Thank you for all you do!!!
Awesome! So glad you loved it! Thank you.
Super happy with this as a fruit dip! Used it for my “berry tray” for a keto friendly item at a Baby Shower.
Sounds delish! YUM!
How many ounces is a serving?
I’m not sure how many ounces. The number of servings is listed at the top of the recipe card and I use that info to divide the recipe evenly.
Thank you so much for an amazing easy recipe! So delicious and get in my fats for keto. I added raspberries and blackberries and 1/2 cup Swerve confectioners. It was perfection! I had made your peanut butter fluff first and it was devine!
You’re so welcome I’m sure this was delicious with raspberries and blackberries. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
So simple and delicious!
Great! So glad you enjoyed it.
Could you turn this into a frozen pie with pecan crust?!? Love your recipes!
Hey Janne, I’ve never thought of that but give it a shot!! Let me know how it turns out.
