Easy 3-ingredient Vegan Sour Cream (no cashews)

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

Sure, you could buy vegan sour cream, but this Easy 3-ingredient Vegan Sour Cream comes with probiotic benefits. Also, it doesn’t have refined oil that you’ll sometimes find in the store-bought kinds, so it won’t leave you feeling weighed down.

When you tell people you made this yourself, they might wonder how you managed to milk all of those tiny almonds by hand and still look so put together—you don’t have to say a word. You are as gorgeous as you are resourceful.

No Blender or Food Processor

This recipe involves stirring. You could blend it, but that seems like overkill. There are a lot of vegan sour cream recipes that also use soaked cashews—you’ll want to blend this if you use cashews. I like this recipe because it’s super easy and it satisfies what I would expect from sour cream. However, I haven’t had sour cream for a very long time.

I enjoy this on Taco Night with

Vegan Yogurt

If you are cooking with it, I’d use Kite Hill’s Plain Unsweetened Almond Yogurt. When I made Lux Vegan Yogurt Twice-Baked Potatoes, I found that this produced the best result. Generally though, this is my preferred yogurt for making sour cream.

For the thickest Easy 3-ingredient Vegan Sour Cream, I’d go with Kite Hill’s Greek Style Plain Unsweetened Almond Milk Yogurt.

It’s Alive!

Keep your gut (microbiome) healthy by consuming probiotics. Kite Hill’s vegan yogurt contains the following live probiotic cultures: S. Thermophilus, L. Bulgaricus, L. Acidophilus, Bifidobacteria. These cultures & enzymes are grown on a plant-based medium, read more here.

Here’s an article about The Microbiome, from Harvard’s Nutrition Source.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar is one of the only things with a mother I will eat. The others would be in kombucha & sourdough starter territory.
