Cashew Cheese
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 3-5 servings
  • 1 cup cashew nuts (make sure they are raw and not roasted or seasoned)
  • Optional - ½ teaspoon probiotic powder - (See Notes)
  • Optional - ½ lime juiced or 1 -2 tsps
  • Optional - a dash of sea salt
  1. Soak the nuts overnight in enough water to submerge them and a pinch of salt (7+ hours). Cover with mesh or let a lid sit lightly on top. (See Notes on Soaking)
  2. Drain the water from the cashews with a strainer, rinse and add to the blender. Add enough fresh water to cover up to about ¾ of the nuts.
  3. Add probiotic, lime juice, salt and blend, stopping occasionally to scrape the sides if needed. Blend to desired consistency, I try to get it as smooth as possible.
  4. See optional fermentation notes, or Serve and enjoy.
