Easy Vegan Cream Cheese

Easy Vegan Cream Cheese

As a family of bagel + toast lovers we love a good non-dairy cream cheese, but the truth is they are hard to find, so I made my own! It’s oil free, preservative free, gluten free + dairy free but oh so creamy and delicious. We love a thick layer on sourdough like this with extra fresh herbs and a side of fruit.

  • 1 cup raw cashews soaked overnight and drained
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream **
  • 1 Tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste


  • Soak cashews in water overnight. The long soaking time ensures the creamiest texture! Drain and rinse.
  • Add cashews, coconut cream, vinegar, and lemon juice to a small blender or food processor and process until super smooth.
  • Fold in salt, dill and chives. Taste and adjust salt and herbs to your liking.
  • Pour cream cheese into a small dish or jar that seals well. Seal and chill in fridge until firm.
  • Spread on all the toast + bagels. Enjoy!


** This recipe calls for coconut CREAM, not coconut milk. You can find coconut cream canned OR you can chill a can of full fat coconut milk overnight in the fridge and skim the cream only off the top of the can. You should get about 1/4 cup coconut cream off the top of a standard can of full fat coconut milk!
