I would suggest tofu, but you said soy allergy, right? Hmmm. Could you blend some cornstarch into the coconut cream to thicken it up a bit?

I make a macadamia cream, but I don't think it would be sweet enough. I use it in my vegan whoopie pies.

Try coconut butter. it is more of the consistency with cream cheese.

The coconut milk "whipped cream" is a possibility but I'd have to just put it on top as it is too soft to really make a layer in between the pretzel crust and the jello top. The original recipe combines cream cheese & cool whip and sugar and it's a little thicker so it makes its own layer. Whipped coconut cream, by itself, just wouldn't hold up. But, I'm keeping it in mind if I find no other solution. I would just dallop it on top.
Thanks for the suggestion and the link!

The recipe is for waffles but there is a dairy, soy and gluten free topping recipe on here as well. Will this work?

I can't use vegan cream cheese because it is made from soy.
The rest of the dish (jello & pretzel part) I've got figured out with suitable substitutions...it's that sweet creamy center that is posing problems. I need to eat fairly clean as I have a lot of food intolerances. I don't know the ingredients in Cool Whip off the top of my head but I'd probably bet money that it may have soy in it or something else I can't have. That's why I'm trying to find a creamy, sweet filling that I can make from scratch with natural ingredients.
Thanks for your input! It's so appreciated!

I would think maybe you would want to replace the cream cheese with a vegan cream cheese (purchase at Whole Foods). As far as the Cool Whip goes, that's a dairy free product.

Are you able to get gluten free pretzels? Or something similar for the crust?

My family also loves the strawberry Jello pretzel dessert (actually they call it salad- I call it dessert)

Coconut cream or cashew cream might be a good substitution. It would taste different, but it might be good. I am thinking it won't be tangy like cream cheese.

I want to make Strawberry Pretzel Jello for Christmas ( a family favorite!) but I can't have gluten, dairy or soy any longer. I need help replacing the cream cheese/Coolwhip combo in the middle of this jello dish. Has anyone ever used any sort of coconut cream type product? Or possibly cashew cream? Any ideas would be helpful!
Thanks! It's far too delicious to never eat again!
