Strawberry Cream Cheese

So after picking loads of strawberries (17 pounds to be more or less exact), I obviously needed plenty of reasons to use them. Here is one, very simple thing I made with them: strawberry cream cheese.

It really is quite easy, as you only need strawberries & cream cheese, and a smidgen of powdered sugar. Try this:

1. Allow 8oz. cream cheese to be at room temperature, so it is not so hard to mix.
2. Puree 1 to 1.5 cups of strawberries, adding 1 Tablespoon (or so) to the liquid.
3. Mix puree into cream cheese thoroughly.
4. Taste to make sure you like it. Add more strawberries, if necessary, but remember, the more you add, the thinner your cream cheese will become.
5. Enjoy on whatever you wish! (I did refrigerate mine before doing this because I like my cream cheese firmer than it was after mixing strawberries in.)


  1. I've never thought to make my own flavored cream cheese. I'm going to have to try this! thanks.

  2. Sounds delicious! Great idea.
