Keto Cream Cheese Mints

The little mints at restaurants and parties used to be my downfall. These keto cream cheese mints are definitely better and free of sugars!

Keto Cream Cheese Mints

Admit it. You’ve definitely had several of those utterly delicious restaurant mints over the years. I don’t think my places give them out anymore, but nevertheless, you know what I am talking about. You’ve probably even had them at parties or weddings. It seems as though people like to hand them out like candy. Pun intended.

I know. You don’t need to remind me. I need a lot of help in the comedy arena. But I digress.

They were so good because they were light and fluffy and would literally melt in your mouth. I always wanted to just sit and eat them to my heart’s content. Much like my former belly, I have a pretty big heart, if you catch my drift.

Not too long ago, I saw a bag of them laying around at my workplace. They were called “pastel buttermints” since they were the colored variety. I think they are often referred to as “hospitality mints” as well. For that reason, you might prefer to call that name “ultra generic.”

I decided to take a look at just what kind of nutritional content we were talking about. Because this particular bag didn’t have a nutrition facts label, I decided to resort to the ingredient list. The first four ingredients were as follows: sugar, corn syrup, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, and sorbitol. Last I checked, none of those ingredients are doing anyone any good.

Likewise, these keto cream cheese mints are light and fluffy just like their sugar-filled buttermint brethren but are much better for you. They are easy to make and can be easily made for get-togethers, gatherings, or just every day sweet, minty treats.

Furthermore, throw a batch together and see what you think. I think they are pretty doggone good and can easily take the place of the other mints. Also, I like the name better too. Not as generic.

Minty, sweet, delicious, and creamy. What more can you ask for?

    Is this 8 pieces, or 8 servings?

  2. Made a batch of cinnamon and a batch of vanilla since we aren’t mint fans and they were absolutely wonderful! Thanks for sharing your recipe! Great job!!

  3. They taste great, but my mints didn’t get hard, even leaving them in the fridge for quite a while. Any ideas what I did wrong? I followed the recipe exactly.

      They won’t get totally hard (thinking of the mints like you’re used to) but they should have hardened to cold cream cheese consistency or a touch harder. Not the most ideal, but without drying them, that’s about as good as can be.

  4. Can I use Stevia instead?

  5. Michaela Dragon

    Could this be piped into rosettes and then put in the fridge?

  6. Perfect blend of creamy, buttery and mint. These are delicious.
