Vanilla Bean Whipped Cream Cheese
This vanilla bean whipped cream cheese is perfect on a bagel, english muffin, or your morning toast! And it’s so easy to make!
What do you like to eat for breakfast? Cereal? Eggs? Bacon? Bagels?
Every once in a while I really get the craving for a bagel and cream cheese. Especially a toasted blueberry bagel. Although cinnamon raisin is a close second. I really love everything bagels but…they wouldn’t be good with this cream cheese. And my son is allergic to sesame seeds, so they’re a no-go.
Usually I opt for eggs and vegetables for breakfast, but like I said…every once in a while that bagel craving hits, and I want some perfectly fluffy, spreadable cream cheese on that bagel.
Who wouldn’t want that in their life??
This whipped cream cheese is the answer.
