Flavored Cream Cheese - Making Your Own

We are big whole wheat bagel fans around here, and the flavored cream cheese is a favorite, especially the strawberry kind. One of the issues I find, though, is that the stores don't sell non-fat strawberry cream cheese, and it is more expensive to buy the flavored kinds. I can make it for less, and I can custom the fat content according to what I want it to be!
Place non-fat cream cheese (1-2 blocks), 2-3 strawberries, and powdered sugar in a food processor. I would begin with only 1-2 tbsp. of powdered sugar, and add to taste. Some like it sweeter, some like it more on the tart side. Puree until smooth.
Place in a jar and use it for weeks!
