I was swooning over this Sweet Pink Berry Bagel all morning. I used my homemade Double Berry Jam and some creamy tofu cream cheese to make this delightful bite. Swipe some of this pastel pink spread on a multigrain bagel, pair it with some fresh orange juice, fruit or a cinnamon latte and you have a very cheery morning. Get this easy recipe and give your bagel a sweet pink makeover..
Double Berry Jam. One of my favorite things to do with fresh ripe berries is to make jam. It always breaks my heart to take perfectly ripe fresh fruit and boil it – but at the first bite of jam I never have any regrets. So there are two parts to the recipe. The jam and then the very simple cream cheese blend.
The flavor in this spread is bright and tart with a sweet cream accent. I guess you could call it a berries and Cream kind of bagel.
Cream Cheese. I used a vegan tofu based cream cheese – but you could sub with whatever cream cheese you keep in your fridge.
