All I say is, being a vegan in 2020 is so much fun! When it comes to spreading, there are countless spreads and dips which present a healthy and delicious alternative to the original spreads such as sour cream and cream cheese! With different combinations of vegetables, nuts, seeds, and seasoning, the choices can be really countless! Here are the 10 vegan spread that are not only delicious, but also incredibly easy to make!
1. Tofu Cream Cheese
Full recipe on Bello! Cute Food!
While regular cream cheese is incredibly delicious, it has a fair amount of fat even for a pretty moderate serving. Per 100g cream cheese, it’s 342 calories. With the fact that cream cheese also doesn’t provide a significant amount of any good-for-you nutrients, they are mostly considered as empty calories.
It’s true that we can choose the fat-free cream cheese, but instead, many different preservatives are added to replace the fat. which is not good either.
So it’s always worthy to make your own cream cheese. After all, we are all we eat! With the magic of onion powder, this healthy version is incredibly delicious! Try it on your bagels next morning!

Pumpkin butter is a new combination for me and I am totally in love with it! With the natural sweet favour and almost silky texture, we can enjoy this butter in many different ways! My personal favourite is spread on the toast and also bake it into cookies!
Added to this, pumpkin is definitely a weight-loss-friendly food because you can consume more of it than other carb sources but with significantly fewer calories. For every 100g of pumpkin, it’s just 26.1 kcal intake while for the same amount of white rice, it’s 130 kcal intake. Added to this, pumpkin is a good source of fiber, which can help curb your appetite and that will be good for your weight loss plan too!

We all know that avocado is full of healthy fat, but it has another great plus – it’s a weight loss friendly food!
