I’ve been wanting to share my favorite savory breakfast tacos with you guys for so long and they are finally here. We are making tacos with Handsome Brook Farms!

But you’re not just getting tacos today. You are also getting a game-changing plant-based cream cheese recipe that is made out of COCONUT MILK! Yup, that is right. Coconut “Cream Cheese” is officially happening.

Before we get into the recipe details for the coconut cream cheese though, let’s chat more about the breakfast tacos and what I like to put in my savory brekkie tacos!

We have tortillas, lox, avocado, greens and of course the eggs! Aka the main star of any breakfast taco. I kid you not when I say that Jordan and I eat eggs a handful of days/meals throughout the week. I love the healthy fats and protein they easily add to my eats and they are just so versatile and simple.

I am very particular about the eggs I keep in our kitchen and have been since I started eating the yolk again a couple years ago. After doing my research and taste-testing various eggs, I am amped to share my go-to egg brand with you babes.

Handsome Brook Farm! 

And now let’s get into the “why”..

It’s no surprise when people tell me that they get really overwhelmed and confused when they are trying to pick out eggs. There are so many terms like cage-free, pasture-raised, etc. And not many know which to buy.

I personally love eating Handsome Brook Farm’s eggs because I can actually trust the eggs I am getting. It is a guarantee that their eggs come from organic-fed, pasture raised hens. They are fed an all-natural diet, which gives their eggs their trademark golden-orange yolk that you want to look for.

Handsome Brook Farm is certified by American Humane and I love that all of their eggs are pasture raised. Their hens get ample space to roam around and enjoy themselves. They get fresh air, sunshine and aren’t stuck in a cage or tight space. They work with a series of small family farms with smaller flocks and ensure that their farmers get their fair wage they deserve and work hard far.

I used their store locator to find where I can get their organic pasture raised eggs by me! Now you know why my egg yolk’s are always so pretty in color 😉

Now let’s make some TACOS and Coconut ‘”Cream Cheese” aka next level dairy-free, soy-free cream cheese.

Savory Breakfast Tacos + Coconut “Cream Cheese”

  • Author: rachel mansfield
  • Cook Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: 2 tacos 1x
  • Category: grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free
  • Cuisine: breakfast, tacos


  • Coconut “Cream Cheese”:
  • 1 13 ounce can of full fat Coconut Milk (or around 13 ounces – chilled in fridge overnight)
  • 1/2 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • Breakfast Tacos:
  • 2 Handsome Brook Farms Organic Pasture Raised Eggs
  • 2 tortillas of choice (see above for brand I used)
  • 4 tablespoons of wild smoked salmon
  • 1/2 avocado, diced
  • 1/2 cup spinach


  1. Coconut “Cream Cheese”:
  2. Using a can opener, open the coconut milk can and scoop out solids into a medium-sized bowl (leave liquid in can, we may use)
  3. Let the solids sit for about 5 minutes to soften a bit
  4. Add garlic powder, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper and lemon to bowl and whisk with hand mixer until fluffy for about 3 minutes (if not softening, add just a tiny bit of the coconut water from the can)
  5. Once cream cheese is fluffy and mixed well, pour into a tupperware of choice and leave in fridge for about 5 days
  6. Breakfast Tacos:
  7. Grease a cast-iron or medium-sized pan and turn to medium/high heat
  8. Crack two eggs onto the pan and turn the heat down to LOW and cook for about 3 minutes so the egg white is cooked but the egg yolk is going to stay runny
  9. Meanwhile, heat tortillas how you prefer and add to plate and add avocado, lox and spinach
  10. Add eggs on top then add cream cheese!
  11. Enjoy immediately!

    1. hi rosie! i definitely recommend using a hand mixer. it was very hard to make without one but if you don’t have one, some muscle and a whisk/spoon will have to suffice! 😉

  1. Hi Rachel! This cream cheese recipe is a Godsend since I just gave up dairy because my newborn is having reflux ☹️ Quick question – when you wrote to leave the cream cheese in the fridge for five days, does that mean it’s good for five days or if it needs to stay there for five days until it’s ready to be used? I’m thinking it the latter since it needs to culture but wanted to check just in case. Thanks!! Nicole

    1. hi nicole! nope, it needs to be USED within 5 days. it does not need to culture as this is meant to be a quick and easy dairy-free coconut cream cheese! enjoy! xx

  2. This cream cheese is the best!! Right now I’m obsessed with toasting some of your paleo bread and topping it with this cream cheese and avo or sauteed mushrooms and YUMMMMM
