Vegan Cream Cheese (A MYTH?!)

Hello All!!

SO, I just tried a recipe for vegan cream cheese..and it looks like it didn't really turn out..at all :(
The recipe I used it from the cookbook How It All Vegan (pg 86)- and I was wondering if anybody has had better luck with vegan cream cheese and could point me in the direction of a better recipe. Here's the receipe-I followed it perfectly. The only difference here, might be that my food processor is a Magic Bullet. Other than that-I followed it perfectly.

1 cup soft or medium tofu (I used medium)
1/4 cup cashew pieces
2 tsp sweetener (I used raw cane sugar)
2-5 cloves garlic
1-2 tbsp water
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp dried dill

The main problem is that..it's not really thick..it's sort of like..pudding and I cannot imagine spreading it on a bagel and enjoying this animal-free alternative to my beloved cream cheese.

Comments? Suggestions?

Thank-You!!!
