a bowl of vegan Cashew Cream Cheese and some crackers

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cashews, soaked
  • 1 cup cashew pulp (from cashew milk)
  • ¼ cup coconut milk (solid part from a can of coconut milk)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ lemon (squeezed juice)
  • probiotic powder from 2 capsules or 2 tbsp of probiotic plant-based yogurt
  • salt and Pepper
  • optional: chives, dill etc.
  • optional: 1 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes for extra cheese flavor

Directions

  1. Place cashews in a medium bowl and soak for a minimum of four hours or overnight.
  2. Drain and rinse cashews and place in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients except for the probiotics and herbs.
  3. Blend until very smooth, scraping down the sides with a spatula.
  4. With your spatula spoon cheese mixture into a glass container that has a lid. Stir in probiotics and cover.
  5. Let sit out on the counter (unrefrigerated) for about 36 hours to give it the tangy flavor of a dairy cream cheese. If you don’t want to wait that long, add 2 tbsp of plant-based probiotic yogurt instead of the capsules and enjoy after cooling in the refrigerator.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1-2 weeks.
