2 Useful Tips for Making the Best Keto Cheesecake Fluff
There can be a bit of a learning curve when you’re first learning how to make homemade cheesecake fluff. In order to help you cut down on that curve, here are a few tips you can keep in mind when making this recipe:
- Use a piping bag. I’ve made cheesecake fluff with both a spoon and a piping bag and I can honestly say that the piping bag will make your life so much easier. I like to use a piping bag outfitted with a star tip because it just offers me so much more precision, resulting in a much fancier looking final cheesecake fluff product.
- Don’t overmix. When you’re beating ingredients like the cream cheese and sweetener together (and especially when you’re beating the heavy cream), be extra careful that you don’t end up accidentally overmixing the mixture. Nailing the fluffy texture in cheesecake fluff does admittedly take a fair amount of practice, but if you can avoid the all too common mistake of overmixing, you’ll have half the battle under control.
Best Way to Store Orange Creamsicle Cheesecake Fluff
The best way to store your orange creamsicle cheesecake fluff (or any type of cheesecake fluff really) is to simply keep it in the refrigerator after you’ve piped it into the serving glass.
This particular cheesecake fluff recipe will keep for up to 3-5 days when properly stored in the fridge.
It’s also possible to freeze your creamsicle cheesecake fluff for up to 2-3 months. Just keep in mind that ingredients like cream cheese will lose some of their texture during the thawing out process.
