Other egg replacer
2 tsp vanilla powder

2 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp Himalayan salt
½ C. crushed pineapple
1 C. unsweetened coconut
2 C. grated carrots (2)
¼ C. chopped walnuts
3 C. spelt flour

4 passion fruits
½ C. of water
¼ C. tupelo honey
1 Tbsp arrowroot

Vegan Cream Cheese
Ingredients
1½ cups cashew halves, soaked for 12-24 hours, rinsed
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
3 Tbsp water
Preparations
Place cashew halves in a glass dish and fill with filtered water. Cover and place in the fridge to soak for 24 hours. Then, drain and rinse the cashews with water.
Drop the soaked rinsed cashews in a blender or food processor and add 3 tablespoons of lemon juice plus 2 tablespoons of water and work up to 3 tablespoons if needed. The water is in the recipe just to help the mixture get as smooth as possible in the blender.
Blend for 2 minutes or so, until it’s as smooth as smooth can be. Set aside for a couple of hours.
Drape a tall plastic container with cheesecloth. Spoon the creamed cashew mixture onto the cheesecloth. Pull up the sides of cheesecloth and tie with a piece of string or twine.
Hang the cheese bag on a kitchen utensil and rest it inside a pitcher. It just has to be extended in the air so that the extra liquids can drain from it.
Leave in a warm place for at least 24 hours. Then, remove from the hanging setup you’ve created, remove cheesecloth and serve as is or add flavors such as herbs or vanilla.

To make this into frosting, add some tupelo honey to get it to taste sweet. Or use Daiya vegan cream cheese.
