Wayfare We Can’t Say It’s Sour Cream



Wayfare We Can't Say It's Sour Cream - a dairy-free sour cream alternative!

Alisa Fleming ~ This is a unique dairy-free sour cream that doesn’t contain a bit of soy. Instead, it the base is made of Lima Beans, Oats, Rice, and Oat Bran. Despite the green of the beans and the tan color of oats, the end result is a white spread that somewhat resembles sour cream. It wasn’t quite as smooth from the tub, but once whipped or blended it took on more of that creamy, spoonable consistency.

I’m not a big sour cream fan unless it is well-dispersed in a recipe, so it would be hard for me to judge on the taste as is, but I can vouch that Wayfare’s We Can’t Say It’s Sour Cream works great in recipes. I subbed it in for regular sour cream in this Sour Cream Bread Recipe and the result was a beautiful, boisterous loaf of bread with a tangy bite.

We Can’t Say It’s Sour Cream also offered a tangy, creamy contrast to salsa for a richer Mexican food topping.

  2. I would like to make an oven baked dish but it needs “cooking cream” and we have a toddler who might have a dairy and/or lactose intolerance/allergy.
    What could I use to replace the cooking cream with?

  3. Hello, my sister in law is getting marry.. I plan to make her a cake but she is lactose. Can i use coconut mile creamy to make icing to replace of the dairy whipping cream. Does anyone has any idea? Thank you,

    Love the idea of using coconut cream! But does it have the coconut flavor? Or are there different kinds that do and don’t?

  5. I was wondering if I can use silken tofu in pumpkin pie as a substitute for cream, or can u suggest something better?

  6. Rosemary McGregor on

    I want to try a recipe for PECAN PIE. I can substitute the butter with coconut oil but what do I substitute 1 tablespoon of cream with which is included in the baking of the filling?

    • If it’s only 1 tablespoon of cream, then I wouldn’t worry too much about it. You could use coconut cream, a little thinned nut butter, milk alternative with a touch of extra oil, etc. That quantity of cream won’t have a major effect on an entire pie.
