Laura Friendly Vegan Pumpkin Cream Cheese

With the abudance of pumpkin recipes showing up on my favorite food sites (like foodgawker & foodiecrush), I decided it was time to create a few of my own.

First up, Vegan Pumpkin Cream Cheese. This easy-to-make recipe tastes just like it sounds. Yummy. Cashews, blended with pumpkin, lemon and a kiss of sweetness… DELICIOUS!
