Tofutti has a non-hydrogenated Better than Cream Cheese which we highly recommend (look for the yellow label). Most of their cheese alternatives contain hydrogenated oils, but lately they have released non-hydrogenated versions of the Better Than Cream Cheese and sour cream. This simple cream cheese icing recipe came from “Elegant Dairy-Free Entertaining” by Patricia Morales Fine.
It’s simple, sweet, and perfect for cakes and cupcakes!
