I can’t wait for The Vegan Roadie Dustin Harder’s (@theveganroadie) new book, Epic Vegan: Wild and Over-the-Top Plant-Based Recipes. I’m sharing his recipe for Crab Rangoon Pizza, which includes homemade vegan cream cheese. But if you’re pressed for time, or just hungry, you can swap in your favorite store-bought!

Dreamy Creamy (Vegan) Cream Cheese

By BakeandDestroy Published: May 31, 2019

  • Yield: 1½ cups

Tip from Dustin: The thickness and tanginess of the cream cheese increases slightly when refrigerated overnight or over a couple days, but it is delicious when eaten straight away too!



  1. Add the cashews, milk, lemon juice, sauerkraut, miso, onion powder, and salt to a high-speed blender. Start blending on low speed and gradually increase the speed as more of the ingredients break down. This will take some time to get a nice smooth texture, but I promise you, it’s worth it!
  2. Periodically stop and scrape down the sides of the blender to make sure all of the ingredients are being incorporated. Be patient, and blend until smooth and creamy—it will take several minutes and some stopping and going.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the scallions, if using, until well incorporated. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
