Flavored Cream Cheese

I get bored with the same old plain cream cheese and the store bought flavors are not usually very tasty (or very limited choice) so I did some searching for different recipes to make at home that can be used for appetizers, crackers, fresh fruit and fresh veggies as well as bagels :-) Here are a few choices:


Cherry Cream Cheese

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tsp. milk
  • 1/2 tsp. teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped maraschino cherries

Beat first ingredients together until fluffy and then fold in the cherries.

Coffee Cream Cheese

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-1/2 tsp. instant coffee

Beat all ingredients together until light and well blended.

Orange Cream Cheese

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. grated orange peel

Beat all ingredients until smooth.

Pineapple Cream Cheese

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 8 oz can unsweetened crushed pineapple, drained

Mix both ingredients until blended

Ham Cream Cheese

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt or powder
  • 5 oz deli ham, chopped
  • 2 large green onions, thinly sliced

Combine first three ingredients until smooth and then stir in the ham and onions.

Jalapeno And Cilantro Cream Cheese

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened

  • 3 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 3/4 cup fresh cilantro, minced
  • 4-1/2 tsp. ranch dry salad dressing mix
  • 3 tsp. jalapeno pepper (or more to taste), chopped

Blend ingredients until smooth.
