Carrot Cheesecake Ball

1 (8 oz.) can crushed pineapple
1/4 cup dry coconut flakes (optional)
1/2 cup finely shredded carrots
1/2 cup raisins
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese
1/2 of an 8 oz. package light cream cheese (this is important for texture.)
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. ginger (powdered works best here)
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup graham cracker crumbs

Drain a small can of crushed pineapple, and soak up excess juice with paper towel. Set aside.

Mix your dry ingredients and toss in the carrots and raisins. Mix the pineapple, coconut, vanilla, and cream cheeses. Add dry ingredients, (you might prefer slightly more sugar than I do) form into a ball and roll in graham cracker crumbs.

Serve with graham cracker, carrot sticks, or whatever you think would go with this. Enjoy!
