With only five ingredients, Miyoko’s Cashewmilk Cream Cheese is the closest thing we’ve found to homemade dairy-free and vegan cream cheese. But unlike most recipes that use acidic ingredients to add tang, Miyoko’s Creamery cultures their cream cheese alternative for a more authentic flavor. And over the years, they’ve whipped up some new flavors, including Scallion, Vegan Lox, Everything, and now, Cinnamon Raisin.
Miyoko’s Cashewmilk Cream Cheese is Now in 5 Organic, Vegan 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 variety, for spreading on bagels, whipping into frosting, and creating “classic” dairy-free cheesecakes. But it is a little coconut-forward and sour in flavor, and might not work perfectly for every cream cheese need. Nonetheless, it’s thick, rich, and will provide a nice consistency whether served cold or baked.

What Others Are Saying ...
The texture is so off. It does not spread well, kind of gummy, and has a weird sour taste. I’ve been dairy-free for years and have tried a lot of “cream cheese” This ain’t it!
Sour Tangy Grossness
Don’t understand the craze. It is like lemon paste
However we love the pepper jack shreds which are not lemony or acidic tasting at all
Very sour. The worst vegan cream cheese I've tried.
It tastes sour and almost spoiled although I only opened it a few days ago. I’ve tried pretty much all the vegan cream cheeses and my favorite is Kite Hill. I always do my best to support vegan businesses but this is a really bad product.
Having the Sensational Scallion spread on a bagel this morning. Yuck! Way too acidic (sour) tasting; almost tasted likes it’s spoiled. If this is the best brand, I would hate to taste the worst. I will say this is our second time trying Miyoko’s. There won’t be a third time.
I think the cultures made it way over powering. Even the plain version. I was so upset because Miyokos is usually highly recommended. So far I enjoy Tofutti cream cheese, and hopefully will try Kite Hill next.
Tangy creamy flavorful
This is for people that like some cultured tang in the flavor… Absolutely delicious to me.
Tastes nothing like vegan cream cheese
Tastes like lime and coconut. It’s not good. My kid hated it and he’s eaten tofutti and kite hill. I’ll probably use it as an additive to cooked recipes because I don’t feel like wasting 6 dollars.
This is actually very good! I have it every morning with my toast!
better on Ezekiel bread than bagels
I went in w such high expectations & tried the plain variety – as someone who *loves* sour, I’m not sure if sour is what one is looking for when it comes to cream cheese! the coconut-overtone is correct and I discovered that it tastes waaaaay better on Ezekiel bread than on bagels! prolly because bagels tend to be on the sour side – you need something more nutty to balance the taste. I may try a flavored variety but not going to go out of my way.
I loved it reminded be of regular cream cheese
