Sadly, Good Planet Cream Cheese Alternative was a short-lived product. Hopefully it returns! For now, you can still get dairy-free cream cheese from brands like Violife, Follow Your Heart, Kite Hill, Daiya, and more.
Just as their dairy-free cheese slices and shreds are gaining widespread distribution, Good Planet has released yet another new product. Good Planet Cream Cheese alternative is rolling out to grocers and David Israel, CEO of Good Planet Foods, feels very confident in the flavor and texture of this new substitute.
The new [dairy-free] Cream Cheese spreads wonderfully on your favorite bagel and is great in countless recipes, like cheesecake, where a person wants the traditional cream cheese flavor and texture but without the dairy.
Good Planet Cream Cheese Alternative is More than a Plant-Based Spread
This is one of the few cream cheese alternatives that is also top allergen-free. It’s made without dairy, eggs, gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, and soy. For richness, they use coconut oil. According to the company, it’s a refined oil, so you don’t need to worry about a coconut flavor.
