"This spread is excellent! Great on chocolate chip bagels and blueberry bagels. A keeper for sure, will be making this a lot in the future (especially since it is so easy to make). Thanks for sharing, Lois!"

"This is so good and very easy to make. My husband loves it on bagels. I like the fact it is much heathier than store bought spreads. I have made it many times!"
