Mascarpone Cheese

Mascarpone cheese is another must have item in our keto kitchen.

It’s a nice fatty cheese and works really well in desserts as well as savoury items. Whether you make a Tiramisu from it or some frosting or even a delicious creamy sauce it’s a Keto Essential. Enjoy our recipe, it’s a great way to save money and make it yourself.

What can you make with mascarpone?

The reason I made a how to for mascarpone was because I love Tiramisu and I needed it for my Keto Tiramisu recipe and it’s pretty expensive when you buy it from the stores. When you make it at home it costs the same but you get a little more than double the amount of cheese. I very recently made an incredible coffee and chocolate tart using Mascarpone cheese. So what are your favourite recipes to use Mascarpone in?

  • 1 Litre Heavy Cream
  • 1 Lemon or Lime Juice


  • Add a litre of heavy cream to a large thick bottomed sauce pan. Place over medium heat and slowly bring it up to a simmer. Keep stirring occasionally so it doesn’t scorch at the bottom. When you see the first bubbles start to appear, stir in the juice of a whole lemon and stir continuously until the cream thickens; it should leave a ribbon on the surface when you lift the spoon.
  • Place a strainer over a bowl and line the strainer with four layers of cheesecloth; you can also use any other thin muslin cloth to strain this. Cover and leave to drain for 8 hours or overnight in the fridge. Discard the whey and store the cheese in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

  1. I can’t wait to try it. Buying mascarpone in Japan is rather troublesome. They always put a packet of sweet coffee flavored sauce which I can’t use. I end up throwing it away. I hate food waste. I have tried some of your recipes and they are great. I also bought the Ketogenic Diet Book. I can’t wait to try some of the recipes.

  2. Found this while checking if mascarpone was keto friendly because I’m also adapting a tiramisu recipe lol Husband and I are visiting his dad in the city right now, but this recipe is great because our tony little mountain town doesn’t have a place to buy mascarpone

    (Also we love your music, awesome to see more metalheads into culinary arts; my dad is a chef and lead guitar in a death metal band!)
