Clotted Cream Recipe - This vegan clotted cream recipe is made with only 3 ingredients! Perfect for tea time with scones & jelly, or indulgent breakfasts.


  • 1/4 cup coconut cream (or use cream from the top of canned coconut milk)
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free cream cheese* (unflavored such as Kite Hill, Trader Joe's, or Tofutti)
  • 1 tsp powdered sugar


  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until it looks fluffy. Add more sugar if desired.
  2. Serve alongside toast, banana bread, or scones.
  3. The clotted cream will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days in an airtight container.


  • *To make this recipe gluten-free, nut-free, or soy-free, choose the dairy-free cream cheese accordingly. Any unflavored variety would work. I like the nut-based Kite Hill brand and the soy-based Trader Joe's one.
  • If you are attempting to make traditional Turkish clotted cream, cream cheese and sugar are not necessary. Refrigerate the coconut cream upside down overnight and skim the thickest portion off the top as shown in the video.
