Vegan Cream Cheese

With only 5 ingredients, it is pure, natural and easy to prepare.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup organic, raw cashews
  • 1 ½ tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil (first cold pressed is best)
  • 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed, organic lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon of Himalayan sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon of water to blend (plus extra water when processing)

Method:

Add all ingredients and combine in a food processor. Blend until it has a smooth, creamy texture. I usually will let it process for several minutes. As it processes, slowly add a tablespoon at a time of water so that is reaches the consistency that you like best.

Get creative! Add some fresh herbs to the “cream cheese” if you like.

This is great as a spread on bread or fruit.

This recipes yields about 2 ounces of creamy “cheese”
