Treeline Aged Artisanal Nut Cheese is a Solid Dairy-Free Option

6

You can slice it, you can grate it, and most of you can enjoy it with abandon thanks to the pure ingredients in Treeline Aged Artisanal Nut Cheese. The cute little boxes house airtight packages with chilled, perfectly shaped, dairy-free hard cheese wheels. They are each made with insanely simple ingredients, which primarily consist of cashews and water. But it’s the addition of probiotics and the “aging” time that cause the cultures to work their magic and create pungent flavors.

Treeline Aged Artisanal Nut Cheese is a Solid Dairy-Free Option

In terms of texture, these Treeline’s vegan cheese wheels are relatively smooth and creamy, but with a slight ground nut vibe. And though they are labeled as hard nut cheese, I’d describe the consistency as a cross between firm and soft cheese. It’s just barely solid enough for easy grating (it does crumble a touch), but it’s still quite forgiving to the bite with a melt-away taste.

Classic

Despite the basic name, this variety has smoky, full-bodied flavor with lightly salty and gently pungent notes. Unlike the Treeline Soft Cheeses, their dairy-free hard cheeses are void of lemon, allowing a little more cohesive depth in the overall experience.

Cracked Pepper

This taste is quite similar to the Classic, but instead of a smoky flavor, it’s spiked with the fresh mild heat of cracked black pepper.

Bite of the Best

Bold and funky (in an authentic, savory sort of way), you only need a little bit to make a big impact. I loved slicing these very thinly and sprinkling them over salads and pastas galore. That small touch really elevates an average dish into something special. The Cracked Pepper variety does have a nice spicy bite, too.

Like any other fine cheese, this aged dairy-free nut cheese is a luxury in taste, texture, and price. But the versatility (it grates and slices!) and pungent taste (just a little will do it) make it an indulgence worth trialing. We likened it to a quality Parmesan, but with a gentler consistency (it still melts in your mouth rather than crumbling) and it’s own uniquely pungent flavor flair. I also liked the very short ingredient list and the fact that it actually contains probiotics. Just be sure to use or freeze it within one week. We discovered that it doesn’t last the full 2 weeks in the refrigerator like the package states, but it does freeze very well.

  2. Just wanted to share a comment from reader Michelle S. via our Facebook page on Treeline Cheese: “I have tried a lot of vegan cheeses that people have recommended as “delicious” and most of them are so bad, I cannot even eat them! This is one of the few that I have liked. In fact, I would call it AMAZING! I only tried the Herb-Garlic so far and it is so delicious! I could easily serve this to cheese lovers and they would not know it was vegan! It is really that good! I am going to go buy every kind they have now! I found it at Rollin’ Oats in St. Petersburg, FL, but they only had 2 or 3 flavors. After wasting so much money on horrible vegan cheese products, I was only willing to risk buying one. smile emoticon According to their website, they have lots of amazing sounding products that I cannot wait to try now! I am SO excited to discover this brand!”
