Since avocados are nature’s butter why not let them make your homemade vegan cream cheese more luxurious? I combined them with a thick cashew cream to add some heft and added in my favorite garlic herb combination. You can use the base and make your favorite flavor like walnut agave, olive or strawberry.

  1. This is tasty. I would describe it as more of an avocado spread than a replacement for cream cheese, but it still tastes good on a bagel. However, do NOT try to make this in a regular-sized blender. Nothing of this thick consistency in this small amoun is ever going to work. I added 1/2C water to try to get it moving but was not successful. It just sticks to the walls. Use either a mini food processor or a 8-oz smoothie maker and save yourself the hassle.
