Vegan Cashew Cream

Cashew Cream CheeseVegan Cashew Cream is a staple substitute in the plant based vegan diet and it’s easy to make. You can use it in place of ricotta, cream and other types of melted cheese since it has a similar texture.

Depending on how you want to use this vegan cashew cream, you’ll want to blend it differently. For a ricotta texture, blend it until its creamy but slightly lumpy. If you want to drizzle it over pizza or pastries, add a little extra water to the blender and blend until it’s a smooth creamy liquid that pours easily.

You’ll need to soak the cashews for 2 hours to make them soft. Plan accordingly.
