Cashew Cheese is amazing! I would, however recommend using a super powerful blender because my food processor left a few small lumps of cashews. The taste was still amazing but it was like eating chunky peanut butter rather than smooth.

Go ahead and experiment with various ingredients to flavor your cheese.

ENJOY!
