Ingredients

Instructions

  • Measure out your coconut oil, then melt it for 10-30 seconds in the microwave. Don't let it boil or get too hot.
    ⅓ cup coconut oil
  • Strain a package of tofu, then press the tofu for 10 minutes to get excess water out, with a tofu press or heavy books. You can also squeeze the water out over the sink, if you're in a hurry. Don't worry about breaking it, since we will be blending this up.
    1 package (14 ounce) extra firm tofu
  • Add tofu to a food processor or blender. Then add all of the other ingredients. Blend until smooth. You will need to stop it a few times to scrape down the sides.
    1 package (14 ounce) extra firm tofu, ⅓ cup coconut oil, 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast, 1 teaspoon salt
  • Place the cream cheese in tupperware and let it set in the fridge for at least 4 hours. It will firm up when chilled.

Notes

Add in some fresh chives, green onions, dill or any of your favorite herbs after blending.
This will last about a week in the fridge.
