10 Best Vegan Sour Cream Brands

Vegan sour cream—you gotta have it! Whether you prefer more traditional uses (hello baked potatoes, black bean chill, and vegan pierogies!), or you crave unique applications such as homemade spicy cremas or rich baked goods, this cultured, creamy product is a must. Check out our list of ten vegan sour cream brands that taste better than dairy.

The Dairy Free Co.

Dollop Lama Cashew Topping

Made from raw, non-GMO cashews, a proprietary culture, and sea salt, this clean-label, real food vegan sour cream is a must-try. Stay true to its namesake and add a dollop atop all your cruelty-free culinary favorites. Might we suggest veganized chili cheese fries?

Tofutti

Better Than Sour Cream

Tofutti didn’t stop at plant-based cream cheese—they’re bringing us vegan sour cream! This creamy product is made with a variety of non-hydrogenated, expeller pressed oils and tofu. It makes for an excellent taco topping.
