Let's Make It
Reserve 2 Tbsp. carrots. Mix remaining carrots with reduced-fat cream cheese; spoon into cucumber shells.
Top with reserved carrots.
Cut each cucumber half into 5 pieces to serve.
Let the kids make cucumber "boats" instead! Just fill the cucumber shells with the cream cheese mixture as directed. Then, add snow peas for the sails. Decorate with other cut-up fresh vegetables as desired to resemble colorful sailboats.
How to Seed Cucumbers
Use a small spoon to scrape the seeds from each cucumber half. This will leave the space needed for the cream cheese filling.
