With only five ingredients, Miyoko’s Vegan Cream Cheese is the closest thing we’ve found to homemade. But unlike most recipes that use acidic ingredients to add tang, Miyoko cultures her cream cheese alternative for a more authentic flavor.
Miyoko’s Vegan Cream Cheese Spreads it on Thick with 3 Classic Flavors
All of Miyoko’s products are palm oil-free, but this line up is also completely oil-free. The creamy consistency comes from a paleo-friendly blend of cashews and coconut cream. We’ve got some notes on each flavor, but tell us what you think about this product too! Leave your review and rating below.
This is meant to be the most versatile flavor, for spreading on bagels, whipping into frosting, and creating “classic” dairy-free cheesecakes. But it is a little coconut-forward in flavor, and might night work perfectly for every cream cheese need. Nonetheless, it’s thick, rich, and will provide a nice consistency whether served cold or baked.

I Wondered if Mine Was Rancid
…but apparently it’s supposed to taste like this, judging by the other comments. Wow. Its pungency might come in handy incorporated into recipes which call for that taste. But when one anticipates the familiar neutral flavor of plain cream cheese, this fermented flavor is seriously off-putting. Plainly Classic? No.
Loved all three
I tried all tree of these cream cheeses and loved them! I used my non-vegan boyfriend as a litmus test and he especially liked the Lox style. It is pretty convincing and excellent on bagels or in wraps.
Bad experience, bad replacement.
Horrible. My life long experience for cream cheese has always resulted in a creamy experience. This cream cheese was gritty. And left an awful aftertaste. I was open to trying this product bc of its vegan claim. The product reminded me of the reason why I’m not vegan.
Dunno in what world these taste like cream cheese. Almost unbearably tangy and acidic.
