Best Vegan Sour Cream

1 rating

Vegan sour cream is a dairy-free alternative to traditional sour cream made from plant-based ingredients such as soy, almonds, or cashews. It has a similar tangy flavor and creamy texture as regular sour cream but is suitable for those following a vegan diet or who have a dairy allergy. It can be used in the same way as traditional sour cream, in dips, dressings, and as a topping for soups and chili.

For this recipe, we will be using cashews for our base and it will require a high-powered blender. We also recommend soaking your cashews for at least 4 hours before blending. 

Use this recipe to make our famous Homemade Ranch! Simply substitute whole milk with your favorite milk-substitute for a yummy vegan dressing!
