If you’re for the best vegan whipped cream brands then you’re in the right place! In this guide, we’ll list our favorite brands along with the answers to common questions about store-bought vegan whipped cream products.
But first let’s answer this important question…
Is whipped cream vegan? The answer is unfortunately not. Most of the time, whipped cream is made completely from dairy, hence the “cream”…
But luckily, there are several non-dairy varieties of whipped cream and the list keeps on growing.
PS: Be sure to read to the very end because there’s a video you’ll want to see on the subject of vegan whipped toppings.
