Healthy eating can take a little prep work to make it feel simpler sometimes, but thankfully it doesn’t take hours to do.  These little cream cheese cucumber bites are prepped and ready in 5 minutes and can wait in the fridge until you are ready to devour them.  Perfect little bites when you’re a bit peckish but don’t want to ruin your appetite before a meal.  Or your kid’s appetite for that matter.

Recently Zoe’s started to be my little kitchen helper too.  She loves sitting on the counter mixing things, pushing buttons on the food processor, or sampling as I go along.  When I made these bites she was very eager to try the cream cheese mix.  Then try it again and again.  Girl likes her cream cheese!

I don’t blame her.  I recently picked up this new to me product at Chuck’s when it was on sale a couple weeks back.  It’s a goat’s milk and cow’s milk cream cheese spread.  The goat’s milk adds a nice little tang to what you’d expect in a traditionally cream cheese.  It was truly a marriage between cream cheese and goat cheese and heavenly paired with crunchy cool cucumber.

These bites are so quick and simple to put together.  You could easily add all the ingredients between a couple slices of bread with a little prosciutto tucked in for a more substantial meal, but for me, I kept them as little snacks to munch on.  I hope you enjoy them like we have!
