This is a dairy free, nutritious, and delicious cheese, that is easy, fast, and guilt free, not to mention it doesn’t harm any animals or our planet. It can be a spread on morning toast or sandwiches or a dip for veggies, fruits, and chips. It can even be used as cream cheese.
Make sure you use unsalted and raw almonds that have been soaked for at least 24 hours and use a high power blender. Regular blenders will not work. You can also add your favorite fresh herbs and make it even more incredible. I’ve given you two versions so you can pick and choose or make both. The first one includes nutritional yeast, which is a great source of B-12, among others. But they are both full of powerful nutrition and flavor.
Your family & friends won’t believe you made this tasty vegan cheese!
