Mimosa Cream Cheese Spread for Bagels or Toast

Share this Recipe!

Creamy orange champagne flavor is created with this delicious Mimosa Cream Cheese Spread. You won’t just want it on bagels. 

I wanted something new and festive or fun for our New Years brunch this year and so I created this Mimosa Cream Cheese Spread. I love a good Mimosa and thought it would be a great flavor to create in a cream cheese spread.

Perfect for a brunch or special breakfast!

I really wasn’t sure how it would turn out, since the champagne syrup I made was originally for frosting and not cream cheese but I hoped it would have the same results, and it did. I was so incredibly pleased.

It was actually fabulous. The flavor of the champagne and the orange really came through. It surprised me that I didn’t need to do more. It was perfect from the first bite.

Let me just tell you how terrific this Mimosa Cream Cheese Spread is on homemade bagels. Or toast. Or in a dessert wrap on a flour tortilla. Spread on flatbread. Or pretty much anything because I have to secretly admit I even smeared some on a waffle. haha It was actually really good.

And I might have used my finger to lick off some too because seriously it was becoming addicting. I loved it.

I did use a tiny bit of food coloring to create the orange tint but it isn’t necessary if you want to leave it out.

This Mimosa Cream Cheese Spread was a huge hit and we will definitely be making it again. Again and again. And again.

If you want to try to make your own bagels, I used this awesome homemade bagel recipe. It’s perfect for brunch or to make ahead for busy morning breakfast or afternoon snacks. You will love them too!
