Cheese is probably everyone’s favorite food. Let’s be real, it’s amazing. It was by far the hardest thing to give up when I went vegan because it is so addicting.

I am not a fan of store-bought vegan cheeses. They all taste so strange to me and leave a terrible aftertaste in my mouth. So I decided to make my own. Many recipes for vegan cheese call for cashews. While I do love cashews, and they are great of you, I don’t want to eat a lot of it because it is so fattening. This is not the case with this cheese. You can eat tons of this cheese without worrying about the fat content. And you will because it is so good.
