Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese...WAY Better

We always have Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese in our fridge.  My kids are major bagel eaters, especially Tristan, who would eat a bagel every single morning of his life, if I’d let him.  It’s great on your other breads too—english muffins, toast, etc.  Try mixing it with cinnamon-sugar for a sweet topping, or in your dairy-free cream cheese frosting!  Yum.  Spread it on sandwiches instead of mayo or butter.  My kids love cream cheese and jam sandwiches, cream cheese, turkey, and tomato sandwiches, and cream cheese sandwiches! 

Use it on tea sandwiches for parties—with almost half the fat of traditional dairy cream cheese, your guests will love you for it.  I made smoked salmon and Tofutti cream cheese tea sandwiches for an adult party and the platter emptied fast!  (Mmm…thinking about cucumber and Tofutti cream cheese sandwiches).

Add some garlic powder and dried dill for an easy and tasty veggie dip!

Anywhere you’d normally use cream cheese, Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese will do the trick.  It has more of a whipped cream cheese texture, as it does come packaged in a tub.  But the flavor is really similar to the dairy stuff, and if you’re spreading it on something anyway, you can’t tell the difference in texture.

The cream cheese comes in many varieties, including French onion, herbs and chives, smoked salmon, garlic and herb, and garden veggie.  SO good.
