Carrot spread can be a delightful replacement for cream cheese on morning bagels, toast, or even muffins. It also is a lovely dip served with toast points, crackers, or crudités, and it makes an interesting condiment for sandwiches.
Ingredients
  • 3 large carrots
  • 4 oz Neufchâtel cheese
  • 1 Tsp orange juice
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
Instructions
  1. Puree carrots
  2. Blend ingredients together in a bowl
  3. Chill for 1 hour before serving
Notes
If Neufchâtel is problematical for you to purchase, you can substitute cream cheese. For a slightly sweeter version you can substitute mascarpone cheese instead.

And yes, not only does carrot spread taste awesome, Neufchâtel has approximately 33% less fat than cream cheese. Tasty and healthy, what’s not to love?
