This blueberry cream cheese spread is light, fluffy, and perfectly spreadable. Try spreading it on bagels or using it as a fruit dip.
I absolutely love a good cream cheese schmear! There was a point in college when about 90% of my diet was Einstein Bros. Bagels on campus. I love just about any flavor (like scallion cream cheese). My berry-loving kids are particularly fond of blueberry cream cheese spread.
It is fluffy, smooth, and creamy. And it remains soft and easy to spread even after refrigeration! Plus, it only requires 4 ingredients and 1 bowl! Add this to your breakfast menu, and thank me later. 🙂
Cream cheese softened to room temperature. Regular, full-fat cream cheese will be the creamiest. Bringing the cream cheese to room temperature will make whipping fast and easy.
Blueberry preserves give you all the blueberry flavor without making the cream cheese watery. Fresh blueberries tend to lose their juices and make the spread watery.
A spoonful of sugar makes it nice and sweet. If you want the blueberry schmear to be less sweet, you can omit the sugar.
Heavy cream whipped with the cream cheese makes it light and fluffy. Plus, it helps it remain spreadable.
Fresh blueberries are totally optional, but they make a nice topping. They look especially nice if you’re serving this to company or for a holiday breakfast or brunch.
How to Make Blueberry Cream Cheese Spread
First, let the cream cheese soften at room temperature for about an hour.
Add the blueberry preserves and continue to whip until they are incorporated. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides to make sure everything gets mixed in.
Serve immediately, garnished with fresh blueberries. Or refrigerate for later.
Store in a tightly closed container (a pint deli container works great) for up to a week in the fridge.
