It’s amazing how many vegan cream cheese alternatives are now available, but I’m always excited to see a new one emerge. Everyone has their favorite, and Vitalite Dairy-Free Cream Cheese substitute is sure to win some people over. It has a formula that’s very similar to Sheese, a popular U.K. brand. But this particular spread is bound for the U.S. and Canada.
Vitalite Dairy-Free Spread has Cream Cheese Style in the U.S.
Unlike Vitalite Dairy-free Shreds, Slices, and Crumbles, their cream cheese alternative is spreadable and made with a base of soy. Since it is a vastly different product from the rest of their cheese substitutes, we have isolated Vitalite’s dairy-free cream cheese style spread in this informational post. Please leave your unbiased rating and review below if you get the chance to buy and try it!
This product is technically labeled as a “plant-based creamy original spread,” not as a cream cheese alternative. But in the U.K., Vitalite Spread is a butter alternative. To avoid confusion, we refer to this product as a creamy cheese style spread.

100% my favorite.
Definitely cheesy, almost like a spreadable brie. The texture is perfect! It’s not whipped definitely more of a packaged cream cheese. There is some liquid on top but it’s flavorless and didn’t affect anything. It has that slight funk that comes with a real cheese and is very savory. This is way better that violife or vevan. There is not an aftertaste just wonderful cheesiness. Because it is so savory I would not put this with like cinnamon sugar but is great with some sweeter flavors like blueberry or chocolate chip bagels.
