Vegan Raspberry “Cream Cheese”

I am often asked about vegan cheese substitutes, and although there are commercially made ones, a lot of them have additives.   I got a question the other day about vegan cream cheese, and ended up giving the woman a recipe of my own for it because it is easy to make and so much better than anything you can buy.  I thought it others might find it useful  as well, so I thought I would share it!  Here I have made raspberry cream cheese, which is delicious with fruit or spread on toast or crackers.  You could also however leave it plain and use it like regular cream cheese for cold summer dishes or flavor it with another fruit or even herbs.
