Cherry Cream Cheese
From EatingWell: May/June 2010
Make your own flavored cream cheese by stirring in fresh, in-season cherries. We like the flavor of black cherries, but any kind will work. Spread this on your morning bagel or sandwich it between graham crackers for a cherry cheesecake-inspired snack.
- 4 ounces (1/2 cup) reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel)
- 1/4 cup chopped pitted fresh cherries or thawed and drained frozen cherries
- 11/2 teaspoons confectioners’ sugar
- Pinch of ground allspice
- Combine cream cheese, cherries, sugar and allspice in a small bowl.
