If you’re a pumpkin spice lover, you’ll love this Vegan Pumpkin Cream Cheese recipe!  

I mix dairy-free cream cheese with seasonal spices, pumpkin, vanilla, and a touch of brown sugar.

Then I use a hand mixer to beat it all together until the cream cheese is light, airy, and silky smooth.

It comes together in just a few minutes and the result is a festive spread with that you’ll want to make all Autumn long.

Spread this Vegan Pumpkin Cream Cheese on toasted bagels, a stack of waffles or serve it with some apple slices and cinnamon pita chips!

Hope you enjoy 😊

Vegan Pumpkin Cream Cheese

Nicole Vranjican
Prep Time 5 minutes
Course Sauces
Servings 10 oz


  • 8 oz vegan cream cheese room tmeperature, I use Tofutti
  • cup pumpkin puree canned
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt I use Morton's
  • 3-4 tbsp light brown sugar


  • Make sure the cream cheese is room temperature (not cold or it won't mix properly) and then add it to a large mixing bowl with the remaining ingredeints and mix well. 
    I like to use a handheld electric mixer for this but you can also cream it by hand with a wooden spoon if you like! I
    Mix until completely blended and the cream cheese is light, airy, and silky smooth. 
    Serve on toasted bagels, a stack of waffles, or with some apple slices and cinnamon pita chips! 
    Hope you enjoy 🙂


Tips for success: 
  1. Start with room temperature cream cheese. This is the most important part of the recipe. If the cream cream cheese is cold, then pumpkin won’t mix into it properly and you’ll have lumpy cream cheese. 
Set the cream cheese on the counter and let it come to room temperature before mixing. 
  1. Make sure you’re using plain canned pumpkin and not canned pumpkin pie filling. They look really similar and they’re generally right next to each other on the shelf at the store so it’s good to double check that the only ingredient is pumpkin.
