Vegan Cream Cheese: made with cashews and non dairy yogurt, it’s easy to make and the best vegan substitute for real dairy cream cheese! Spread it on bagels, bread or as a dip for veggies and crackers! 4 flavour options! Gluten free, No tofu!
Ok Vegans you are going to love my homemade vegan cream cheese recipe!! It’s incredibly simple to make with all healthy whole food ingredients and it’s soft, creamy, little tangy and super cheesy! And takes 15 minute to prepare!
What's vegan cream cheese made of?
I used cashews and dairy free cultured coconut yogurt for the cream cheese base and some miso and nutritional yeast and spices for and extra cheesy flavour. It is really delicious! And there’s no tofu folks!
I have 4 different flavour variations for you! Regular, Garlic & Herb, Sun Dried Tomato & Pesto and a Fruity blend! Perfect breakfast, snack or for the holidays on a vegan cheese platter with vegetables and crackers! My favourite!- smeared on a toasted or fresh Everything Bagel (bagels and schmear) SO GOOD!!
Can I use it for baking?
Honestly if I’m going to use vegan cream cheese for baking I will buy it. The brands I usually use are Daiya or Kite Hill. I haven’t tried Violife, go veggie or tofutti brand as of yet!😊 I purchase them at Walmart for the most part but Trader Joe carries them as well. Check out my vegan cream cheese frosting recipe here
Can you freeze vegan cream cheese?
It will keep covered in the fridge for 7- 10 days and freezes well for 1-2 months!
How to make Vegan Cream Cheese:
Add cashews to a pot cover with water and boil for 10 minutes (this softens the cashews). Drain well
Add the cashews to your food processor along with the yogurt and rest of ingredients. Process until smooth and creamy. Stop to scrape down the sides a few times as you go. this will take a few minutes.
Enjoy right away or cover and chill in the fridge first (chilled is better in my opinion😊). Lovely spread on bagels, bread or as a dip with crackers and veggies ! For different flavour options and full recipe ingredients and instructions see recipe card and notes section below
