Dairy-Free Chipotle Cashew Cheese
Prep time
Total time
Years ago, Navitas Naturals submitted this recipe to our site. I decided to give it a spin, and am updating the recipe with a few changes. One modification is the additional option for nutritional yeast. I felt that this ingredient added more depth, cheesiness, and balance to the flavors.
Serves: 8 servings
  1. Put the cashews in your food processor or high power blender and process until powdered. I use the single-serve cups on my Ninja blender.
  2. Add the lemon juice, water, nutritional yeast (if using), garlic, ½ teaspoon chipotle powder, and salt. Process until smooth. If it is too thick for your machine, you an add more water, as needed.
  3. Taste and blend in more spice or salt, if desired.
  4. Transfer the mixture to an airtight container and refrigerate for 3 hours or more. It will thicken quite a bit as it sits.
  5. Keep leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
