Welcome to my copycat Paleo inspired Philadelphia cream cheese spread.
As a food blogger every now and again you have that amazing recipe that you never planned to make or that idea you had and then you spend the rest of the month buzzing thinking just how amazing it actually was.
Well this is one of those moments. It was a Saturday night in late May and thanks to a planned holiday we were doing our recipes in advance for late June and all of July. We were having a KFC evening to make a week’s worth of posts and on top of that we made a couple of really delicious copycat sauces. One of them was our ranch dressing. We ended up with loads left over and put some in the fridge for a future day.
Thanks to the coconut milk in the ranch dressing it was hard like butter and the next day I was having some butter on my toasted teacake (blame the weird pregnancy cravings for that one) and it dawned on me that this ranch dressing would make an awesome butter alternative.
Imagine if you used this on your gluten free crackers instead of butter and how much healthier you could be with it.
The next week I experimented further and made something the closest I could find to a copycat light Philadelphia. I love Philadelphia soft cheese and miss it so, so much. Also because it is egg free and cheese free it actually comes in as an excellent cheap alternative for vegans and paleo followers.
Last night I was watching a TV show about vegan food and how expensive it is and how people are happy to pay that to know it is vegan, but here you have something that you can make really cheap and that you would love.
I just want to spread this on everything now!
