Kite Hill

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

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?
