Now on to cream cheese mixture. In a mixing bowl, place coconut butter, lemon and lime juice, plant milk, vanilla, sugar and lemon zest. Blend together with hand held mixer on high for 5 minutes, until completely smooth.
In seperate bowl whip cheeses until smooth on medium for 3 minutes, add coconut butter paste to bowl with cheese mixture and mix until fully incorperated. Now beat mixture on medium speed for another 3 minutes. Next pour in melted coconut oil and mix until well combined. Fold in vegan whip cream.
