Sure, we love topping our bagels with mashed avocado or hummus, but sometimes nothing quite does the trick like cream cheese. From herbed varieties to smoky vegan salmon flavors, plant-based cream cheese is never void of flavor. Here are 12 vegan cream cheese brands you need to try!
Available in Creamy Original and Chive & Onion, So Delicious brand has added vegan cream cheese to their lineup of dairy-free favorites. You can totally go the bagel route or whip up some DIY cucumber sandwiches for fancy afternoon tea.
Made with simple ingredients like cashews, coconut oil, salt, and dairy-free lactobacillus cultures, this tangy cream cheese is a must-try. The creamery offers flavors including Mountain Berry, Pumpkin, and Roasted Garlic.
Offered in Plain, Chive, and Everything flavors, Kite Hill knows how to do cream cheese right. The inclusive brand uses almond milk as the first ingredient in its spreadable cheese products. As for the tangy taste, that’s vegan enzymes hard at work to give you all the cultured cream flavors.
Tofutti, the brand we know and love, offers a soy-based cream cheese alternative. Try the cheesy spread in original, whipped, and herby flavors. Bagels, cream cheese, and carrot lox, anyone?
You love their vegan butter, and let us tell you, their cream cheese delivers, too! Try the classic or be bold and opt for Savory Scallion or Fish-Free Lox. Yep, Miyoko’s offers smoky vegan-salmony cream cheese perfect for Sunday brunch and the weekday morning hustle alike.
TJ’s cream cheese is crafted from coconut oil, giving it hella creamy texture, and with vegan cultures for a tart breaky staple we live for. Speaking of staples, bonus for adding Everything But the Bagel Seasoning. It is an oxymoron we’re willing to live with.
