Green Mountain Farms Greek Cream Cheese
Per 2-tbsp serving: 60 calories, 3g sugar, 4g protein
The Scoop: Thanks to the addition of whey protein concentrate and Greek yogurt, this spread has a few additional grams of protein and 40 fewer calories than regular cream cheese.
The Bottom Line: “Getting some protein from cream cheese is fine as long as it’s not replacing more nutrient-dense protein sources like eggs and fish,” says Moskovitz. “Also, if you’re smearing cream cheese on a bagel, go for 100% whole wheat or low-glycemic pumpernickel, and only eat half if you’re trying to lean out.”Back to top
