Festive Cranberry Pear Cheese Dip
8 oz organic cream cheese, softened
4 oz organic goat cheese softened ** (I used garlic & herb but plain works too)
1 pear, peeled and finely chopped
⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 cup shredded organic cheddar cheese
⅛ – ¼ cup chopped dried cranberries
½ cup finely chopped toasted pecans
Optional ingredient: 1 scoop Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens powder
**1 scallion, chopped (add if using plain goat cheese)
- In a food processor, add cream cheese, goat cheese, cayenne, pear, and collagens powder (if using). Process up well.
- Add in cheddar cheese and cranberries. Pulse just to combine.
- Scrape mixture into a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours.
- To make dip into a ball, spread out finely chopped pecans onto a large piece of parchment paper. Form cheese mixture into a ball and place on top of pecans, pulling up the ends of parchment paper to help coat. OR, simply place dip into desired serving bowl and top with chopped pecans.
- Serve dip with favorite veggies or GF crackers and enjoy!

Organic cream cheese – Cream cheese is made from cream, water, and a starter culture from lactic acid bacteria. It only has around 2 grams of carbs per ounce which makes it a popular keto-friendly food.
Goat cheese – Unlike cow’s milk cheese varieties that grow stronger and more pungent with age, cheeses made with goat’s milk get milder and sweeter as they mature.
Pears – The Bartlett pear in North America is the same variety that is called the “Williams” in many other parts of the world. Bartletts found in grocery stores are usually green and will change to yellow as they ripen at room temperature
