This lightened-up cream cheese spread is packed with herbs and ripe avocado. It makes for the perfect schmear and is a great St. Patty’s Day breakfast!

Ingredients

8 ounces cream cheese, soft
1/2 ripe avocado
2 tablespoons fresh parsley
1 tablespoon fresh chives
1 tablespoon fresh basil
1/2 lemon, juice only
Pinch of salt
Bagels for serving

Directions

  1. In a food processor, add herbs (parsley, chives, basil) and pulse a few times to chop. Then add softened cream cheese and avocado.
  2. Start your food processor and add the lemon juice as it runs until the spread is light and fluffy and combined well. Season with a pinch of salt.
  3. Serve on toasted bagels.

IF you don’t have a food processor, you can dice the herbs very finely and mash together the spread with a fork, but it won’t be quite as combined.
