3 Mouth-Watering Homemade Cream Cheese Spreads

At one of our recent planning meetings, Brittany (our awesome Production Manager) shared a brilliant idea to do a blog post about how to make your own flavored cream cheese spreads. I thought it was a great idea because…..#1 everything tastes better with a cheese…and #2 by adding your own flavors, you control exactly what goes into what you’re eating. No filler ingredients here!

Turns out Brittany’s idea was a smashing success! We could NOT stop snacking on these spreads, and actually ate way too much, if we’re being perfectly honest. 😉 Best of all…it’s an incredibly simple process to make these homemade cream cheese spreads! Grab a block of cream cheese, one or two other ingredients, and prepared to delight your tastebuds!

3 Homemade Cream Cheese Spreads

Tomato Basil Spread

Ingredients:

  • 1 block of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • a handful of fresh basil leaves

Mix well to combine.

We found that a blender works great for this!

Onion and Chive Spread

Ingredients:

  • 1 block of cream cheese
  • 1 Tbsp dried chives
  • 2 Tbsp fresh green onions, sliced
  • 1 small shallot, finely diced

Mix well to combine.

Strawberry Spread

Ingredients:

  • 1 block of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp strawberry jam

Mix well to combine.

Use your homemade cream cheese spreads on bagels, as a dip for crackers, as a sandwich spread, or any other delicious use you can come up with!

All three of these spreads were absolutely delicious, and disappeared quickly! My favorite part of these cream cheese spreads is that they are totally customizable. To create your own, start out with one ingredient, add it to your cream cheese to taste. Once you’ve dialed in the perfect amount of your first ingredient, you can start experimenting with adding other flavors.
