I am so excited to share with you my latest find. We have been trying to bring more excitement into our mornings lately, and these new Sweet PotaTOASTS from the makers of CAULIPOWER have made breakfast so much fun!! You can make this sweet potato toast right in your toaster oven. 

It is so quick and easy. You can top it with my homemade maple cinnamon cream cheese and sweet, ripe bananas, or top this sweet potato toast with a more savory topping like eggs or hummus. These Sweet PotaTOASTS swap out for the bread, so use them anywhere you would use bread!! It is like eating a superfood toast!! Are you ready to see how easy this homemade cinnamon cream cheese spread is? Whipped cream cheese for bagels may be the norm, but wait until you try it on sweet potato toast!!

Recipe Step-By-Step Directions:

Adding cream cheese and maple syrup in a food processor.

Step 1: Remove the cream cheese from the refrigerator and let it warm up a bit. Add softened cream cheese and maple syrup to a food processor. If your cream cheese isn’t warmed a bit, it will still blend, but you will need to blend it longer.

Seasonings in the food processor.

Step 2: Add in the ground cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. These seasonings will add some great flavor! Last, add the 2 TBSP of whipping cream. This whipping cream adds some creaminess to the schmear.

Blending cream cheese in a food processor.

Step 3: Add the lid and lock it in place. Blend the ingredients together until the cream cheese is whipped and creamy! This sweet cream cheese spread is ready to enjoy or chill it for later!

Recipe FAQ:

What is the best cream cheese to make a spread or schmear?

I prefer to use full-fat cream cheese. Let the block of cream cheese come to room temperature so it blends easily without lumps.

What is the best type of maple syrup?

I always use 100% real maple syrup. Grade A or Grade B maple syrup both work well. Always check to see if your maple syrup is gluten-free if you are not using 100% maple syrup.

How do you store homemade cream cheese schmear?

This homemade cream cheese will keep fresh for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. I recommend storing it in an airtight container.

  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • teaspoon ground ginger
  • teaspoon ground cloves


  • Allow cream cheese to warm to room temperature
  • Place all of the cream cheese spread ingredients into a food processor and blend until whipped.
  • Spread the cream cheese schmear on the toast and top with sliced bananas and a honey drizzle



  1. I recommend using full-fat cream cheese instead of low fat. It spreads better and is creamier.
  2. This cream cheese schmear will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container.


Please know that every gluten free flour blend has a different starch to grain ratio. If you use a blend I didn’t test, you may need to adjust your moisture levels in your baked goods.
