Cream Cheese Foam Green Tea


Originating from Asia, Cheese Tea is all the rage these days!  There are new shops popping up everywhere and if boba tea shops didn’t have it on their menu before, they do now!

I’m not usually one to quickly jump on the new food fad bandwagon because let’s be honest, they don’t always live up to the hype. 

However, I must say, Cheese Tea is ALL THAT and then some!  The combination of creamy, slightly sweet and salty cream cheese foam, topped over cold green tea is something to marvel at.  And like all good beverages that I have come across, I couldn’t wait to create a low-carb/keto version of this delicious drink.

We recommend doubling up the ingredients and keeping the whipped cream mixture covered in the refrigerator so you can use it daily in your morning or afternoon tea!

This one is super fast, easy, and will definitely put on a dessert like twist to your normal green tea!  Only needs 4 ingredients too!

For this one, the only unique ingredient you will need is Swerve/Monkfruit, both can be purchased on Amazon or local specialty market.

Now, let’s get started!

4) Use your preferred method to steep tea leaves.  My go-to is using the bottom dispensing tea pot for the simplicity and ease.  Note – I recommend steeping the tea for at least 5 minutes or longer to ensure a strong brew.

5) In a serving glass, pour tea over ice.  You can add additional  Swerve/Monkfruit if you prefer your tea sweet (we recommend adjusting per tsp of sweetener).

6) Spoon whipped cream mixture on top of iced green tea.  Optional – sprinkle a little sea salt on top.  Note – when drinking, don’t mix.  Drink with foam on top.

    Just made this. Thank you! Do you know how many days the cheese topping would last in the fridge?

      You are very welcome! We never fully tested it, but we had one in the fridge for 3 days and it was still good! I’m sure it could last longer though.
