Veggie Cream Cheese

I don't know about you, but I LOVE bagels. I especially dig flavored cream cheese. Since becoming pregnant I have become a fan of all natural and try to eat few processed foods. You never know what stuff they put in that cream cheese at the bagel shop to preserve it. You really don't know what they put in cream cheese to preserve it.
Regardless if this recipe is more natural than what you would get at the bagel shop...I'm going to pretend that it is because it makes me feel better about devouring my morning bagel.

Veggie Cream Cheese:
8oz. package of 1/3 fat cream cheese
1 carrot, shredded
3 green onions, minced
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic

Mix all ingredients until well incorporated. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 weeks. I'm sure this would keep longer...but I'm pregnant and can't afford to see how long it will stretch.'s 9pm and I am jonsing for a bagel.
