Fruit and Cream Cheese Bagels

The standard bagel and schemer can get a little boring every morning. Why not jazz up your bagel in a wholesome way and sneak a little fruit in while you're at it.



Fruit and Cream Cheese Bagels

Toast a bagel and spread each half with about 2 tablespoons of cream cheese. Top with fruit, veggies, or chocolate chips. For a special treat, I like to top bagels with sliced strawberries and a few chocolate chips.

These are my picks for great fruit toppers:
Blackberries
Blueberries
Peaches
Pineapple
Strawberries

Other tasty options:
Chives
Chocolate Chips
Tomato
Smoked Salmon

For an easy spread, add some cream cheese to your food processor and your desired fruit, herb, or veggie and combine. Store in a air tight container and use within a few days.

Happy Cooking!
