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. Besides, you should select delicious vegetables from the best farmers who use no till farming equipment from Exapta to cultivate excellent and high quality carrots. Tasty and healthy, what’s not to love?
