Although I think I have tried every store-bought vegan cream cheese, I have never found one I like. Despite my efforts, I am always left with an after taste that leaves me disappointed. So, I decided to make my own skinny vegan cream cheese.
In an effort to experiment with many different mixes of ingredients, I think I found a combination that tastes like cream cheese with only 4 simple ingredients. In fact, I have posted my Carrot Lox and Vegan Cream Cheese Bagel recipe before, but this time you can pick your flavors.
First, I love Dave's Everything Bagels and Trader Joe's Everything Seasoning. So, I decided to combine my two loves into one fabulous breakfast. In order to make the perfect bagel, I had to come up with a thick and creamy skinny vegan cream cheese.
Another wonderful thing about this recipe is its versatility as a base, making it easy to give it any flavor you want. For instance, if you like your cream cheese fruity, blend with fresh fruit and a little vanilla. If you like it savory, simply add everything bagel seasoning. Then, the possibilities are endless.
Then, you can turn your bagel into a skinny vegan cream cheese open-faced veggie sandwich. To do this, simply pick your favorite bagel toppings. For example, I used spinach, tomato, red onion, capers, and everything bagel seasoning.
As you can see, the possibilities are endless. And if you are worried about the calories, Skinny Vegan Cream Cheese Recipe is made from raw cashews; no different than a smear of nut butter.
