  • 8 oz full fat cream cheese, softened
  • 2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (more if you like bacon!)
  • 2 tbsp chopped scallions, including light green parts
  • 2 tbsp almond milk or heavy cream (milk for non-low carb)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp white vineger
  • 1-2 tsp Sukrin Icind Sugar (or Swerve Confectioners)(regular sugar for non-low carb)


  • Place the softened cream cheese in a small bowl.  
  • Add the almond milk (or heavy cream), lemon juice, vinegar and sweetener to the cream cheese, mixing until combined - I use a hand mixer.
  • Stir in the crumbled bacon and scallions. 
  • Refrigerate for an hour to firm-up again. It will be spreadable.
  • Serving size is approximately 2 1/2 tablespoons with 1 carb per serving.
