Ingredients

  • 8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufch√Ętel), softened
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shredded carrot plus 1/4 cup, divided
  • ½ cup diced pineapple
  • ¼ cup golden raisins
  • ¼ cup chopped toasted pecans
  • ¼ cup toasted unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Carrot greens for garnish
 

Directions

Step 1

Whisk cream cheese, honey, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl until combined. Stir in 1 cup carrot, pineapple and raisins.

Step 2

Coat a large piece of plastic wrap with cooking spray. Scoop the cheese mixture onto it. Using the plastic wrap to help you, form the cheese mixture into a ball, then completely wrap in plastic. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 2 days.

Step 3

Just before serving, combine pecans, coconut and the remaining 1/4 cup carrot in a small bowl. Turn the cheese ball out onto a serving plate and form into a carrot shape. Coat with the pecan mixture. Garnish with carrot greens, if desired.

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate for up to 2 days.
