How to Make Strawberry Cream Cheese
If you have 10 minutes then you have enough time to make this AND eat it up! Go ahead and give it a try… You will never eat plain cream cheese again!
- Soften, mash and mix: Let cream cheese soften. Mash the strawberries and mix together with the cream cheese and add the sugar. I used my kitchen aid mixer and it worked great.
Change it Up
This strawberry cream cheese is so easy to change up! Here is a list of other fruits that you can use instead of strawberrries! Make them all so that you can have a new one every morning!

This cream cheese is great to make and use all week! Just make sure that when you are done that you put it in an airtight container and keep it in your fridge. It can last in there for 10 days!
