Cream Cheese Foam Coffee

Cream Cheese Foam Coffee is a delectable drink that combines the richness of cream cheese, sweetener, whipping cream, half and half, and a hint of sea salt, creating a luscious and decadent foam. This velvety foam, often times called a cheese cap or milk cap, is elegantly layered atop freshly brewed coffee, resulting in a delightful contrast of creamy and frothy textures.

It’s a popular coffee beverage found in Taiwanese coffee shops and boba shops, offering a unique and indulgent coffee experience all made in just 10 minutes!

  1. Great recipe! I tried to make 1 serving in my ninja single smoothie blender and it did NOT work out but I’m excited to try it again with a hand mixer

      Hey Susie! Happy to hear you liked the recipe! Yeah, a blender probably won’t ‘aerate’ the heavy cream to foam it up.

  2. The batch of cream cheese foam. How long will it last in the fridge ?

  3. I LOVED THIS! I am a crema boba fan and a starbucks salted caramel cream fan and this hit the spot. AND it’s low carb!

    I made a 1/2 batch since I didn’t want too much leftover. Husband approved! We dipped strawberries into all the leftover foam and it was delicious! Thank you for the recipe.
