How to make Mascarpone Cheese | Keto Essentials | Headbanger’s Kitchen


Horns up and welcome to a brand new episode
of Headbanger’s Kitchen: Keto Essentials, the show where I show you where to make some
essential items that we use in our keto recipes. Now today I’m going to be showing you how
to make a mascarpone cheese, which is an Italian cheese. In fact, I don’t know, is that how you pronounce
it? Some people say mascar-pone, some say mas-car-po-nay,
I don’t know, whatever it is. Anyway, it’s time to make that delicious mascarpone
cheese. Add a litre of heavy cream to a large, thick-bottomed
saucepan. Place over a medium heat and slowly bring
it up to a simmer. Keep stirring it occasionally so it doesn’t
scorch at the bottom. Once you start to see bubbles appearing, you
know the cream has reached the right temperature and if you have a thermometer you’re looking
at a 180 degrees fahrenheit. Once this happens, you stir in the juice of
a whole lemon or one lime, if you live in India like me and stir it continuously until
the cream thickens. It should leave a ribbon on the surface when
you lift the spoon, just like that. 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. Pour in your cream, cover it and leave to
drain for eight hours or overnight in the fridge. The next day, discard the whey and store the
cheese in an airtight container in the refrigerator. And that’s it, our mascarpone cheese is ready,
and that looks creamy and dee-licious; I can’t wait to use it in a recipe. And, our mascarpone cheese is ready. I’m not gonna taste it because i’ve got some
special plans with this cheese and you’ll find out soon enough. This will easily last for about two weeks
in the refrigerator and this is delicious in a lot of recipes. If you guys have any ideas on how I can use
this cheese, let me know in the comments below. If you like the video, please give us a thumbs
up, subscribe to the YouTube channel and I will see you on the next episode of Headbanger’s
Kitchen. Cheers and keep cooking.

  3. Mixed with garlic and used as the sauce on a Fat Head Pizza.

Mixed with roast veg, bacon, savory spices, hot sauce, and then put on cauli bread and toast like a grilled cheese or during hot weather, use cloud bread.

  5. Can't wait to see what you make with this! I am new to keto and I love all your recipes, a lot of them are really different from what else is out there. Thank you for your hard work!

  6. oh thank you so much !
    I cannot eat cow dairy because I'm intolerant but I can eat ewe or goat and now I can make my own ewe mascaprone as I'm lucky enough to be able to find some ewe cream 😀
    You just opened a whole lot of recipes for me

  7. That is a really fancy chenna. 😛 Can't wait to try it. I made a baked chenna some days ago and it was yummy as well. 🙂

  8. I love all of your recipes! At some point, you should make an update video about your results on keto! I think a lot of viewers are interested about how it's going for you. A tip you may or may not know: people react very differently to dairy, some are totally fine, but others will get knocked out of ketosis from the lactose. If your results seem to plateau, try eliminating dairy for a few weeks. Anyways, can't wait to make my own cheese!

  9. Who knew it was so easy to make, with an ingredient all dairy eating Keto-ers have on hand? Thanks for this! This cheese is hard for me to find, so i do appreciate this. I found a really tasty keto lemon mouse that was really divine. I'd love to see a good keto tiramisu recipe, but even savory recipes, too, if you find some.

  10. great vid once again mate great vid great vid and i can't wait 2 see what u do with that mascarpone cheese my wife used to make a rissoni dish with mascarpone cheese but that won't work it will be interesting to see what u do love coming back to visit your channel and am working on that track i mentioned to u last time talk soon you're Mate Bars from Aussie weight loss channel

  11. how is this different from paneer? just asking coz it seems like that's how paneer is made; or did I miss something.

  12. I made this today and it is delicious. The cheese just melts in your mouth. I had it with a boiled egg for dinner, I took one tbs of the cheese, a little hot sauce, rosemary, crushed black pepper and a little lemon juice and heated in the microwave for 20 secs, it was seriously very delicious and I have so much left. A question though in MFP what is 1 serving of the cheese, is it 1 tsp or 1 tbs? Thanks a ton for making keto more delicious and specially in India. 🙂

  13. omg!!!!..thank you!…I love marcapone cheese….have you made any recipes with it yet!!??…been on keto for 6 months now 🙂

  14. I made Tiramisu using Marscapone as a frosting. Just added some coco flakes, vanilla, and espresso to it then mixed it up, it was realllly delicious.

  15. I used a nice big spoonful of (store-bought) mascarpone in your Keto Chili recipe. Which was soooo good! Gotta make my own mascarpone now, thank you!

  16. i can hardly express how much I enjoy your videos – i had no idea i could make marscapone cheese, and i am a total diy-er…..awesome!

  17. Sorry mate, but mascarpone should not curdle like ricotta. It should be thick and smooth.

    To get a good mascarpone, first up you should use a double boiler so you don't scald the cream;
    Bring it to under boiling-point ~ circa 87-90°C, and no more (use a cooking thermometer)
    Add the citric acid (or lemon or lime juice) and heat for 10 mins on low heat (don't go above 90°C);
    Remove from heat and allow to cool before pouring it into your cheese-cloth.

    Also, you should hang the developing cheese for at least another 24 hrs in the fridge to develop properly (after it's finished dripping whey, which should take the 8-to-10 hours you suggested; then you want the 24 hrs minimum developing time, still in it's cloth) — you'll get a much richer-flavoured, smoother mascarpone that way.

    Good mascarpone is easy, but you can't rush the time.

  18. Hey u r very innovative when it comes to keto recipes… i m into LCHF diet since two months n finding it a little difficult to stick to it caz I m an Indian vegetarian… almost every keto recipe has either egg or meat product in it… a bit relieved after subscribing ur channel coz u have done really good to all vegetarians who r trying to shed down those extra pounds…

  19. weird. here in canada mascarpone cheese is soooooo expensive. for a 500g container its $15-$17 dollars (and canadian money is worth less than US dollars by about 25%). a 500 ml of whipping cream is about $5.00 – im thinking i should make it myself to save money!!!

  20. Wow 😋😋😋great recipe I will make it tomorrow thanks my friend 🤟🏼by the way enjoy your trip

  21. I live in a small town they use to carry mascarpone in our grocery store they stop , guess wasn’t a big seller, and I have these cookies I love to make the filling with mascarpone cheese, now I can make them again, https://peaceloveandlowcarb.com/chocolate-dipped-peanut-butter-cookie-sandwiches/

  22. Hii..Can I use this cheese for your recipe of lemon cheesecake.?I hv already made one with philadelphia according to ur recipe nd it tasted Awwsome..Thnx so much.

  23. Can you use a sous vide machine and just take it out of the machine when it reaches 180? It would save a lot of stirring .

  24. My son Anurag and I love watching your videos!!! My son likes your chocolate cake very much. He also likes "jibber jabber". We cannot think of anything better to watch on YouTube these days! Anurag says"horns up!"

  25. This is awesome! Especially since it's so expensive in India. How different is it to make cream cheese though? Would love a video on that too if possible! Thanks so much!

  26. Bruh i really don’t know what you try here 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️to make ppl fool or ppl are fool when they call your cheese Mascarpone 😅😅😅😅did you guys a round ever see how mascarpone looks like??? I really believe that no one of you did go and google please you will understand why something like that pisst me off !!!!!

  27. Could you please do an video showing how you track your macros and calories when on keto and the easiest way to do it? That's the hardest thing I find about doing keto as I usually dont do either- I just eyeball stuff. Thanks

  28. I think this is wrong. You got something like ricotta, Mascarpone should be creamy and thick. I think your temperature is higher then it should be.

  29. 50 g mascarpone cheese
    1 heaped tbsp chosen sweetener
    1 level tsp cinnamon powder / mix all well.
    Pipe or spoon over your pancakes (almond or coconut 😂) and enjoy
