Carrot Cake Bite with Cinnamon Kefir Cheese Frosting

Delicious Carrots from Eat Fresh Organic box. They call out for Carrot, Apple and Ginger Juice (I also added the Yam leaves I got in the box and Coconut Water Kefir) and of course Carrot Cake Bites for the Kids snacks! With a batch of fresh Kefir Cheese in the fridge I set to work!!

however it is briefly described in the pictures above. The longer you leave the kefir to sit and separate the ‘dry-er’ your cheese will become.

Mix the ingredients together and because these are for lunch boxes I put the frosting on the inside.
