Sour Cream ’n Onion Cream Cheese

A dreamy vegan cream cheese, with a sour cream 'n onion flavor!
Course Appetizer, cheese, dips
Servings 1 cup


  • 1 cup presoaked cashews this is about 3/4 cup raw cashews; soak for 2-3 hours in warm water
  • 1/4 cup plain non-dairy yogurt
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp sliced green onions green portion
  • 1 tsp mild miso ex: chickpea miso
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt rounded
  • 1/2 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp guar gum lightly rounded (optional, see note)


  • In a blender (high-speed is easiest), blend all ingredients until very smooth, scraping down blender as needed. Once smooth, use straightaway or refrigerate in an airtight container for 3-5 days. Makes about 1 cup.


  • Guar Gum Note: The guar gum helps give a slight viscous texture to this recipe, which more resembles commercial cream cheese (dairy and non-dairy). It’s not essential to the flavor, however. So, if you don’t have it, you can omit and simply chill the mix to help it set more before serving.
