What's your recipe? Try goat cheese or farmers cheese.
Do you not like cream cheese? If not, I don't think you'll like goat either.
Welcome, by the way...

Neufchatel cheese is a substitute for cream cheese. Kraft sells Neufchatel cheese as low fat version of its Philadelphia cream cheese. It's similar to American cream cheese but is naturally lower in fat.

If you're baking something sweet, I might go with the neufchatel option. For something savory you have lots of options. Laughing Cow makes some great low calorie spreadable cheeses (we're talking about 35 calories per wedge). You can find that with the other refridgerated cheeses, they come in many flavors too. Depending on what you're making you could also use a soft cheese like Brie, or a good gorganzola.

A lot depends on what you're making. If you were making something like a cheese cake you could subsitute the recipe and cheese and make a ricotta cheese cake.

There are several sub options for cream cheese ... scroll down to cream cheese to find them.

Cool I too am looking for a substitute for cream cheese

My Dr has put me on a diet. And I am not allowed cow's milk because of the hormones I can't live without cheese. So I am searching for hormone free cheeses for consumption and to use in recipes!
