Creamy Mayo Cheese Spread Recipe
For this easy, quick, delightful cream cheese spread recipe you’ll need one tub (230g) of plain, medium-fat cream cheese. ½ cup of sour cream, ½ cup of Hellmann’s Original Mayonnaise, salt and pepper to taste. All you need to do is combine all of these ingredients in a food processor and mix on a low-speed setting until they are well combined. The spread should be set and not runny, but we recommend covering and putting in the fridge for 1 – 2 hours before serving to help it set well.
