The Best Plant Based Sunflower Cheese Spread ~ Spero Foods

 Finding a plant-based cream cheese substitute that tastes good can be hard. Most plant-based cream cheese spreads are made with additives, have a gritty texture, or an acidic taste. Discover a smooth plant-based sunflower cheese spread that is delicious and eco-friendly.

 Having to follow a dairy-free diet due to a severe food allergy can be tough at times. That means having to give up your favorite foods and trying to find dairy-free substitutes that taste good. The struggle is hard! Especially when you discovered your dairy allergy, four years ago, at the age of 52. The removal of all dairy from my diet helped my severe asthma get better and a food allergy blood test confirmed that was allergic to dairy. A year ago I had my first anaphylactic reaction from dipping my hands in milk. 

 Finding food swaps for my favorite dairy foods has been quite the ride. I am thankful for all the plant-based companies that make allergy-friendly food. I quickly discovered delicious vegan ice cream that I enjoyed eating but items like dairy-free chocolate, dairy-free cheese, and dairy-free cream cheese that taste good have been a struggle for the past 4 years. Last year, I finally discovered No Whey Chocolate for a delicious plant-based chocolate bar. Then a couple of months ago at Expo East, I was so excited to discover the best Plant Based Sunflower Cheese Spread from Spero Foods. Now if I could only find a vegan cheese that has the gooey stretchy texture that I miss.

Creamy and Delicious Plant-Based Sunflower Cheese Spread 

 Spero Sunflower Cheese Spread is different from all those other plant-based cream cheese spreads. After discovering Spero's delicious creamy taste and 8 yummy flavors, I discovered that Spero is made with 7 simple ingredients with eco-friendly sunflower seeds. Spero sunflower cheese spread does not contain any additives like enzymes, lactic acid, or sugar.

+ That means choosing sunflowers as our main ingredient, a plant that uses 97% less land than cashews to produce. Save forests. Protect trees. Choose Sunflower Cheese.*

+ That means choosing ingredients that help keep our air pure, clean, and safe for everyone and everything. Like sunflowers, a plant that emits 99% less CO2/CH4 than dairy to produce. Breathe easy. Eat Sunflower Cheese.*

One Taste was all I needed 

 One taste was all I needed to know I finally found an awesome cream cheese substitute. While at Expo East Spero Foods offered me a plate that contained every flavor of sunflower cream cheese that they create, along with small pieces of bagels. I licked the plate clean and then asked for another sample plate. I think that I stopped at the Spero Foods booth several more times during the 3-day event. 

Once I returned home from traveling to Expo East in Philidelphia, I contacted Spero Foods for samples as I knew that you, my readers needed to know bout this amazing vegan cream cheese spread. I was overjoyed when Spero sent me a box of their delicious sunflower cheese spread. I grabbed a package of everything bagels and opened up my favorite flavor of Spero plant-based cream cheese ~ The Smoked Salmon. After spreading my bagel with this delicious sunflower plant-based cheese spread, I enjoyed every bite. 

 The next day I knew that I had to make vegan smoked salmon to enjoy with my bagels and cream cheese. What is your favorite topping to put on your bagel?
