We love these dairy-free cheese spreads for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert!

From morning bagels and party dips to homemade frosting and stuffed pastas, plant-based cream cheese has a long list of accomplishments on its resume—it’s a recipe gamechanger! To get in on the smearable, mixable, and versatile spreads, check out our list of the best vegan cream cheese brands on the market.

The Dairy Free Co.

The Dairy Free Co. is your new go-to for all things dips, spreads, and schmears. We’re obsessed with the Everything Bagel Schmiracle Cashew Spread. Not only does it level up our morning breakfast sandwiches and bagels alike, the simple ingredients make it an easy choice to fall in love with.

We adore a brand with options, and Miyoko’s is giving us just that! In addition to cultured vegan butter, plant-based cheese wheels, and the coveted cashew mozzarella, the cruelty-free brand has the vegan cream cheese game on lox—Fish-Free Lox that is. Other flavors include Cinnamon Raisin, Savory Scallion, Everything, and Classic Plain.
