Does anyone know of a low-fat vegan spread recipe for making at home? I've been using Tofutti, but I just realised it contains 28% fat, and also has added sugar.

I don't want too vegetabley or beany or spicy a spread/pt, because I like to have it for breakfast so I don't want it to be very strong. Just something that can be used like cream cheese... Most of the recipes I found online are more like pt (which is lovely, but more for lunch/dinner).

I live in Finland in the countryside so I can't get "mock" things like vegan mayonnaise etc. very easily. I can get tofu and vegan milk and cream though.

I'd be grateful for any ideas! If not, I'll just have to start experimenting with silken tofu...

Here's a breakfast tofu spread.  It DOES have peanut butter in it, but I think you could cut the fat by using low fat peanut butter or not using all six tablespoons. 

I have a tofu cookbook in one of my moving boxes and I recall a few spreads recipes that sound like they'd be good for breakfast.  If I find it, I'll let you know. 

Edit:  Here are two more I found.  The berry one sounds really good.

How about tzatziki?

Is there too much fat in tahini or light blue Keiju? Vegan mayo is easy to make, but it has a lot of oil in it. I can PM you the recipe in Finnish if you want to.

maybe making your own vegan cream cheese? the recipe i use is fairly simple,
3oz silken tofu
3 oz firm tofu
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs vegetable oil
1/4 tsp sugar (optional)

blend until smooth. if you want, you can add other things to it, like strawberries or veggies. scrumpy
