Vegan whipped cream substitutes – all made from scratch at home! If you’re vegan or can’t eat dairy – like me – you don’t have to buy vegan whipped cream substitutes: They’re usually full of additives and don’t taste very well.

You can use aquafaba as vegan egg substitute for cakes, as binder for vegan burgers, for vegan mayonnaise or vegan cheese, for vegan marshmallows or vegan marshmallow fluff, to make vegan mousse and vegan buttercream, as vegan whipped cream substitute or vegan ice cream base, for vegan chocolate-covered marshmallow cookies, for fluffy vegan waffles and crepes – you can even make vegan meringue or a vegan pavlova with aquafaba!

Vegan Cream Cheese/ Queso Fresco Alternative

Vegan Cream Cheese/ Queso Fresco Alternative

Today I’m sharing with you an easy, vegan, nut-free and tofu-free cream cheese alternative made with just one ingredient! For a long time I’ve been looking for a vegan cream cheese or queso fresco alternative that tastes good and which I can use for baking and raw for dips or ice cream. Because it has a neutral flavor it can be used for sweet as well as savory recipes! Yay! 😀 The vegan substitute – homemade tofu – made with boiled soy milk that is curdled with lemon juice, is alright but this one is even better I think. You can use it to substitute quark, curd, ricotta, cream cheese, queso fresco, cottage cheese, farmer’s cheese in non-vegan recipes and tofu in vegan recipes – if you don’t like the taste and texture of tofu.
