Fluffy, rich, Whipped Blueberry Goat Cheese is served on crusty baguette slices in this simple appetizer. You can whip up this impressive, savory/sweet dip in 15 minutes or less!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 lemon juice (2 Tablespoons) and zest
  • 1 vanilla bead pod (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
  • 4 oz goat cheese softened
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 sprig fresh mint optional

Instructions
 

  • SAUTE blueberries, honey, lemon, and whole vanilla bean pod (split down the center) in a small saucepan over medium heat until bubbling and blueberries begin to burst, 4-5 minutes (See notes if using vanilla extract.)
  • REMOVE from heat and let thicken for 5 minutes until cooled slightly. Discard vanilla bean pod.
  • CREAM together the goat cheese and cream cheese using a handheld mixer until smooth. You can add a Tablespoon of milk or cream if it is too thick.
  • SPREAD the goat cheese onto a shallow serving dish or plate. Pour the blueberry mixture over the cheese. Drizzle with honey and lemon zest. Add mint sprigs for garnish.
  • SERVE with toasted baguette, crackers, or fresh apple slices.

Notes

You can use any ratio of goat cheese and cream cheese. 
If using vanilla extract instead of a whole vanilla bean pod, add extract into the blueberry mixture after you remove it from the heat. 
If making a cheese ball or log, after Step 3 stir together ingredients until just combined. Form shape and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.
