Spero Foods embraces plant-based cream cheese but they make it even more eco-friendly! While nut-based cheeses are greener than dairy, they require a lot of water to produce. Sunflowers are the best of both worlds! Plus, people with nut allergies can generally eat sunflower seeds because they are not a tree nuts. However, do check with your doctor before experimenting if you have serious allergies!
What is Spero Foods?
Spero literally means to hope or to believe, desire, or trust. This is accurate because Spero hopes for a better world that is greener and healthier. And they want us to trust that their product is a step closer to this vision!
“People want plant-based dairy. But, today, plant-based dairy is prohibitively expensive due to the use of nuts as the primary ingredient.
I created Spero Foods because I wanted everyone to be able to eat clean dairy alternatives that actually taste good.
At Spero, we make dairy from seeds.
Why seeds? Almonds/cashews (nuts), which comprise the majority of the dairy alternatives industry today, will never create cost comparable products with dairy because they are too expensive and they’re hard to scale. They take too much time, space, water, and human labor. Seeds are 7-8x less expensive and grow 50-70x faster than nuts.
By using truly scalable ingredients and cutting-edge, patented technology, Spero is the first company making plant-based dairy cheaper than traditional dairy products, taking dairy alternatives mainstream.”About Spero

Okay yes, the company is great and the founder is cool, but what about the cream cheese? Well… it’s delicious! Spero Foods cream cheese is amazing because of the flavors! They are all rich and tasty, each one is significantly different and it’s better than any other nut or dairy cream cheese I’ve ever tried. I love that they have all the expected flavors but also the rare ones like strawberry and chocolate.
Finally, as you can see, the prices are also amazing. I bought the 8-flavor variety pack which has been wrecking havoc on my diet. This isn’t because these cream cheeses are unhealthy. They are actually pretty great with only 80 calories per serving. But when it’s this delicious, you tend to have a second serving if not a third and sometimes even a fourth.
The main ingredient in Spero Foods cream cheese is sunflower seeds. This makes these healthier as well as more eco-friendly than other nut and dairy cheeses. But they also only contain a total of six ingredients! They keep it simple with just organic sunflower seeds, water, coconut oil, salt, spices and probiotic cultures!
Spero Food’s Vegan Cheese is delicious! The flavors are all so different and on top of everything else, it is really well priced! The only reason I haven’t ordered more yet, is because I am trying to eat less calories. This stuff is so addictive and poses a major threat to diets because it is too good not to devour. Check it out for yourself and keep an eye out for their special offers and sales!
