Key Lime Pie Spread

Sharp and pungent, this was inspired by a key lime cheese ball I sampled a while back. It was a bit on the mild side, and of course contained sugar, so here’s my version! Healthier, and with just a bit more punch, but ridiculously simple to make.

1 package cream cheese (8oz.)
2Tbsp Key Lime Juice
1Tbsp+ Splenda (or other brand of sucralose)
1Tbsp+ Stevia (powdered or granulated)
1/4tsp Cardamom

Mix the ingredients vigorously in a mixing bowl until the consistency is smooth and flavours have melded. Refrigerate until serving. If you want, shape into a ball and sprinkle with fresh lime zest, garnish with kiwi slices, or cover in graham cracker crumbs. It’s delicious on crackers, cookies, or fruit, and makes a terrific carrot cake frosting.
