While shopping at Trader Joe’s this morning, I was lured to the sample booth by a heavenly, enticing aroma…Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Spread, served on Cinnamon Swirl Bread. Ummm…YUMM!!!!! Both me and my 19 month old son gulped our samples down faster than you can imagine. God, it was good! But, after looking over the products that hey used to make it, this pumpkin cream cheese recipe would not have been very weight watchers friendly. So I headed home to make my own lighter version. And I was ultimately successful! Creamy and sweet and full of pumkin-y goodness, each serving is just a 2 Point Total. Serve some on top of a 1 Point Cinnamon Bagel for a FABULOUS WW snack idea! Though it’s not an official one of Weight Watchers Fall Recipes, this Cream Cheese Pumpkin Spread Recipe can be used in so many ways, I’m sure you will all just go crazy experimenting with it. Enjoy!
