Super Easy Cashew Cheese

Don’t get me wrong, I love cheese, but the reality is that it’s not the most nutrient dense food selection. If you buy good quality organic cheese, then it’s a great occasional treat, but not something to rely on for your daily protein or fat intake. Right now I’m having a break from dairy all together, so I whipped up this Super Easy Cashew Cheese as a pizza night is not complete without it. Just perfect dolloped on top of a chicken and pesto pizza with a sweet potato crust (recipe coming soon). Enjoy.


  • 1 cup raw cashews*, soaked until soft
  • ¼ cup water, ideally filtered
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • The juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • Sea salt, to taste


  1. Once cashews are soaked and drained, simply blend all ingredients in your Vitamix** until smooth.
  2. Transfer into an airtight container and store in the fridge for 5-7 days.

Perfect dolloped on pizza or baked potato, or as a dip, spread or dressing. What will you start with?

*Cashews provide the creamy texture needed for this dairy free cheese, so the same result won’t occur with other nuts.

**If you don’t own a Vitamix, please try your high speed blender but unfortunately I can’t guarantee the same result.

    Wow! Never thought of cashew cheese until I came across this post! I made your chocolate crackle bar and it was yum! Didn’t turn out to be as good looking as yours though… LOL
