Can I Use A Dairy-Free Alternative to Cream Cheese?

In case you’re looking for a dairy-free alternative to cream cheese, there are a few options you can try:

  1. Cashew cream cheese – Cashew cream cheese has a rich, creamy texture and a mildly sweet flavor. It can be used in all the same ways as traditional cream cheese, which is perfect for this recipe.
  2. Almond cream cheese – Almond cream cheese is made from almonds that have been soaked and ground into a smooth paste. It has a mildly nutty flavor and can also work with this recipe.
