Why you should love this Vegan Herb and Garlic Cream Cheese

If you are like me, you love a perfectly thick and creamy vegan herb and garlic cream cheese. The recipe combines the perfect textures with tons of exciting herb and garlic flavors coming from roasted garlic, Herbs De Provence, and chives!

I have been trying to re-create the satisfying feeling of biting into the perfect cream cheese and this recipe definitely did it for me! It’s perfect for spreading on a toasted bagel or crackers.

A lot of people think that making a vegan cream cheese would be extremely complicated, when in fact it is EXTREMELY EASY. This one is in rotation in my house every week as I’m sure it will be in yours!

You can avoid those strange tasting store bought vegan cream cheeses and swap it for this fresh and delectable homemade version that is easy to prepare and better for your wallet. This recipe makes enough for six servings. Any excess stores very well in the fridge in a Tupperware container.

The only tool you will need for this recipe is a high-speed blender, you can also use a food processor. I like to use a blender for a more creamy cheese.

Many vegan cream cheese recipes call for either cashews or tofu as the base. I decided to do a combination of the two because I find the textures pair perfectly together.
