Wayfare Dairy Free Sour Cream has Bean Around for a While


Despite the greenish hue of butter beans and the tan color of oats, the end result of Wayfare Dairy Free Sour Cream is surprisingly white spread. And it does somewhat resemble dairy sour cream. When we tried it years ago, it wasn’t quite as smooth as dairy sour cream from the tub. But once whipped or blended it took on a more creamy, spoonable consistency.

Wayfare has come out with new packaging, but their formula is the same. See the image next to the ingredients below for their current look.

My husband and I were so excited to discover this product. It helps my skin which I believe is due to the Konjac Root ingredient. The texture is nice and the flavor is very good.
Unfortunately, after days of empty shelves at the health food store, this product came back with a small difference in its texture and the flavor is not as good as it was before. Either you changed the recipe or something went wrong with production. Even though the price is still the same, the new container is much smaller.

This sour cream is sooo good. I love it on tacos, potatoes, you name it. I can’t believe how they nailed it. So happy! Don’t try any other vegan sour cream, just run & get this.

I honestly couldn’t believe how delicious this was or that it contained NO nuts, eggs, soy or palm oil. It is so smooth & creamy and no one would suspect it was vegan. FINALLY a replacement for SOUR CREAM. They also make a bowl of vegan NACHO CHEESE!!

  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. My brother is allergic to soy and dairy. If I mixed the dairy free margarine and coconut milk would that work as well?

  4. 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,

  5. Jessica NIelsen on

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

  6. I’m looking for a dairy free substitute for cream of chicken, mushroom, broccoli, etc. as well as an Alfredo sauce.

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

  8. What is the best substitute for oil and dairy. I live both without them. What are some of your suggestions?

  9. 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.
