Alas, many cream cheese spreads for bagels are not gluten free. They also often have lots of sugar or other unhealthy ingredients that I try to avoid. Gluten free does NOT mean healthy! I whipped up the following recipe, which easily lasted a week for us, eating some every morning on our bagels.
GF Blueberry Cream Cheese Spread
12 oz cream cheese
6 oz fresh organic blueberries
1/2 to 1 Tbsp organic honey or agave nectar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (GF)
1/4 c. chopped almonds
I put everything into a mixing bowl and beat it thoroughly with an electric mixer. I would have used my food processor, but it is still packed in a box in our old house because we haven't finished moving. The mixer worked well because it left chunks of blueberries, which would have been more finely mixed with a food processor. Personal preference. Chunks or no chunks. Very tasty! Next I'm trying a goat cheese spread...stay tuned.
