Tofu Cream Cheese


Tofu Cream Cheese


Tofu cream cheese is a good substitute from cream cheese. It has low calorie that will contribute toward your nutritional goals.

One 2-tbsp. serving of tofu cream cheese contains 85 calories.

12.3 oz. extra firm silken tofu
3 1/2 Tbsp. cashew butter or 5 Tbsp. raw cashews, finely ground
4 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. liquid sweetener (optional)

Place the tofu in a clean tea towel, gather the end up and twist and squeeze for a couple of minutes to extract most of the water.
Place into a food processor with the remaining ingredients and process for several minutes until the mixture is very smooth. You may have to stop the machine and loosen the mixture with a spatula once or twice.
Use right away or scrape into a covered container and refrigerate. It firms up with refrigeration.

Makes 2 cups
