the instant cream cheese recipe you need!

When I was a kid my brothers, sister, and I would make it our after lunch ritual to make mini, self-assemble, five minute cheesecakes. To do this all you need is your favorite cracker, your favorite jam, and cream cheese! Spread a little jam over your cream cheese on a cracker and you instantly have some crunch with some smooth… cheesecake!

Hands down my favorite crackers are Simple Mills almond flour crackers. They taste legit and trust me when I say they don’t taste like they are healthy for ya! The only problem you might run into is… trying not to eat the whole box. Good luck!! By the way, they totally make amazing kid-style cheesecakes! 🙂

P.S. My favorite variety is the Sun Dried Tomato and Basil Almond Flour Crackers, YUM. The best news: these almond flour crackers are available in Safeway’s across the Pacific Northwest- so don’t walk, RUN.

      Oh Patricia! My goodness, looks like my brain was working faster than my hands for forgot to type the hour part! 🙂 Yes, it’s 1 hour a least. I soak them overnight if I can, but an hour works too. Just fixed this on the recipe.

    I’ve a food allergy to cashews, but not to almonds or walnuts. Could I use soaked walnuts instead to make this dreamy and creamy delight?

    Bonjour, si vous ne lisez pas le français, j’ai ajouté la traduction plus bas.
    Je suis très contente de trouver cette recette de fromage à la crème sans lactose. Merci !
    Ma question portait sur les amandes naturelles en remplacement des noix de cajous, mais elle a déjà été posée. Je crois bien que je vais l’essayer en petite quantité. Par contre, je n’ai pas d’huile de noix de coco puis-je utiliser d’autres sortes d’huiles ?
    Bonne journée 🙂

    Hello, excuse my English, it’s a tranlation….
    I am very happy to find this recipe for lactose-free cream cheese. Thank you !
    My question was about natural almonds instead of cashew nuts, but it has already been asked. I think I’ll try it in small quantities. On the other hand, I do not have coconut oil, can I use other kinds of oils?
    Have a good day 🙂

    It was super lemony – like, over powering. Do you think it would be possible to leave it out or cut it and replace with more water?

    Hi Kaylie, is that 2 cups dry measured and then soaked or is that cups after they have soaked? Not sure if cashews swell with soaking like chickpeas do or just soften so I thought I’d make sure my measure was accurate.

    Hi Kaylie, I am allergic to most tree nuts including cashews but not to macadamia or Brazil nuts…. which of the two if any can I substitute for the cashews? Thanks

    If my cashew cream (plain) has soured, is it bad to use? It is over a week old.
    Thought it might make a more authentic cream cheese taste? I did use the water because it seemed too thick, would that make it sour?

    Can’t wait to try this, looks amazing. Do you think this would work if I added strawberries to make strawberry “cream cheese”?

    I have been looking for an easy dairy free cream cheese option for my bagels, and I love this recipe! I added strawberries to mine and it was delicious! The kiddos even liked it!

    Would this work in a cheesecake recipe? I love cheesecake, but dairy years me up inside. I really wish that I could find a good dairy free substitute that would work in cheesecake.

      I haven’t tried this recipe in a baked cheesecake, but I have lots of raw cheesecakes on my blog using a similar base. To view them, just search “cheesecake” into my search bar on the website an d lots of easy recipes will pop up! 🙂

    Hi there! Wondering how well this would do heated, if you’ve ever tried. I have a Vegan friend and another who is allergic to dairy and saw this and thought I could make a hot spinach and artichoke dip using this as part of it. But I don’t know how this faux “cream cheese” would hold up to being heated.

    This alternative cheese sounds great unfortunately we have a cashew nut allergy in the house, do you think macadamias would work too.

    This is soooooo good! I paired it with your bagel recipe. I did want to note that I added Himalayan sea salt & it made a huge difference. It cut the sweetness of the cashews and eliminated the lemon flavor without affecting the tartness. The taste is almost indistinguishable from dairy cream cheese. I’m in love! The other non dairy cc recipe I used involved 2 days making homemade rejuvelac! The whole process truly took 5 minutes as I always have soaked almonds and cashews on hand.

    Thank you so much for this great recipe!!
    I know it will taste wonderful because “Seven Day Adventists” have tons of dairy free recipes also using cashews and they are simply delicious! Please keep posting healthy alternatives. We really need them! 😊

    Hello Kaylie,
    Could I use this “cream cheese” to make cheese cakes? I have a bad dairy allergy (not IBS) but love to make and eat cheesecakes. Would this work?

    Even after soaking the cashews overnight -nearly 24 hrs.- when I used my Vitamix it cane out smooth but still very slightly chunky. I added another Tablespoon of water to help the mixture rotate more in the food processor. Is it supposed to be slightly chunky or is there anything else I could do?

  17. 70
    Genevieve

    I added a couple more tablespoons to my batch until my vitamix food processor could be put on level 7. The mixture got warm and finally became smooth. Yum!

    Hi, I just made this and I agree that 1/4 cup lemon juice makes it too lemony. If you leave out the lemon juice you have to replace that liquid with another liquid, I’d use water. Also, I cannot use straight coconut oil so I used “Chosen Blend” which is a combination of avocado oil, organic safflower and coconut. It is a liquid oil and does not have a coconut flavor. It worked. I have to say that it never got as creamy as dairy cream cheese, it stayed gritty but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Oh, I too added a pinch of himalayan salt to cut the lemon flavor. I would make this again.

    Thank you! Just made it ! It’s great can’t wait for breakfast tomorrow! Now I have a full can of coconut cream . I don’t know what to do with it. Do you have any recipes that have coconut cream in them? Don’t wanna waste it.

      Hi Ashley, soooo many!!! my bacon garlic spaghetti squash casserole, spicy whole30 noodles, and dairy free cream cheese bars are a few of my faves 🙂

    I was just wondering if this recipe can be turned into a veggie cream cheese once it’s all blended together? By let’s say adding peppers, green onion, carrots, etc.

    In the recipe ingredient list is says coconut cream. But in the comments people are saying they used coconut oil. Which should I use?

    I just made this. It is yummy. The addition of coconut cream is genius. It tastes like cream cheese. I used lite coconut milk because I wanted to cut the fat but it was still great. Thank you
