Hi there! Making vegan cream cheese is actually quite easy and delicious. Here's a simple recipe you can try:


  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked in water for at least 4 hours

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened non-dairy yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 cup water (or more, as needed)


  1. Drain and rinse the soaked cashews.

  2. In a food processor or high-speed blender, blend the cashews, yogurt, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and salt until smooth.

  3. Slowly add in the water, a little at a time, until you reach your desired consistency.

  4. Transfer the mixture to a container and let it sit at room temperature for 24-48 hours to allow it to culture and thicken.

  5. Once thickened, store in the fridge for up to a week.

You can also add in herbs, spices, or other flavorings to customize your cream cheese. Enjoy!
