This cultured vegan cream cheese is a great alternative to conventional dairy spreads. Rich in healthy fats and proteins thanks to the cashews and macadamia nuts, probiotics help it obtain a thick, spreadable consistency and give it its a slightly tangy taste. Feel free to experiment with mixing in fresh chopped herbs for a more savory spread, or cinnamon for a sweeter take.

Preparation

  1. Cover cashews and macadamia nuts in ½ cup water and leave in refrigerator for 48 hours. In a separate container cover dates in ¼ cup of water and leave them to soak alongside nuts.
  2. Line a 4×4 pan with cheesecloth (or a clean linen kitchen towel).
  3. Remove nuts from refrigerator and sprinkle the contents of probiotic capsules over nuts and stir.
  4. Combine soaked nut mixture and soaked dates (along with soaking liquid) in a blender and blend until completely smooth. If mixture is too thick to blend, add a tablespoon or two of water.

Ann's Tips and Tricks

When buying probiotics in capsules or powder form, make sure it’s not a pre + pro brand that’s been blended with pre-biotics. You need pure probiotics for the cheese to set.
