Dairy Free Cream Cheese

     This is a wonderful recipe that I tried from the GFCF recipes yahoo group.  The recipe comes from Christel Church.  She apparently even won an award for the recipe!  I can see why,  it is scrumptious on an Udi's bagel! Yum! Yum!


  1. In a bowl, empty the non-chilled can of coconut milk.  
  2. Open the two chilled coconut milks, remove only the solid white coconut milk.  Place into the bowl with the non-chilled can. 
  3. Add the sugar, vanilla powder, and vanilla extract.
  4. Whip for 3 minutes
  • After you have whipped it, you can use it as whipped cream or frosting.
  • If you leave in the refrigerator for three days, it becomes cream cheese.
  • You can freeze it, to make ice cream.
Cook's note:
  •  I did taste mine once it was done, and decided I wanted a little more sugar.  You can play with that.   
  • Keeps in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks.  Freeze what you don't use. 
  • This is easily mixed with strawberry jelly to make a strawberry cream cheese.

  1. brilliant! We have been trying to figure out how to make strawberry cream cheese, tried several ideas, none really tasted good, this looks like it would be great. Thank you.
