Cream Cheese

You won’t believe how simple it is to make vegan cream cheese at home! It features a handful of simple and affordable ingredients, like tofu, nutritional yeast, salt, and vinegar. Use this versatile spread for bagels, toast, snacks, and more!


Start by opening the pack of silken tofu. If you're using regular tofu, remember to drain and press it for a few minutes. Toss the tofu into a blender or food processor along with the vinegar, nutritional yeast, coconut oil, and salt.


Time to mix! Keep the blender going for a couple of minutes, or until you achieve a perfectly smooth and creamy consistency. Don't forget to stop and scrape down the sides a few times throughout to make sure everything is evenly mixed.


Give your vegan cream cheese a taste and adjust the seasonings to suit your liking. Need more tang? Add a bit of vinegar. Prefer an extra cheesy flavor? Sprinkle in more nutritional yeast.


You can leave it plain or personalize your vegan cream cheese by mixing in optional flavorings like chive and onion, dill, strawberry, blueberry, chocolate, or cinnamon and brown sugar.


Once you've achieved your desired flavor, transfer the cream cheese into a container or jar for storage. Place it in the fridge for around 6 hours, or let it set overnight.
