We recently had the chance to try all three flavors of the new allergy-friendly Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet Shreds! We shared them with extended family and friends and the reviews were overwhelmingly positive. I’m excited to have discovered another tasty, widely-available dairy-free shredded cheese option.
Tasting Notes for Vegan Gourmet Shreds
These Vegan Gourmet Shreds are not only dairy-free and vegan, they’re also soy-free and made with Top 8-free ingredients.
We served the Fiesta Blend as an accompaniment for a fajita night. The jalepeno peppers made the Fiesta Blend Vegan Gourmet Shreds a bit spicy for some of the children, but the adults enjoyed it. Our two newly dairy-free guests said they planned to look for Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet Shreds in stores where they live.
The Mozzarella was excellent on some Summertime Tomato Melts from Family Feasts for $75 a Week by Mary Ostyn. Those of us who know the taste of dairy cheese noted the tangy cheese flavor in the mozzarella that is sometimes missing from dairy-free cheeses. Note that this variety doesn’t melt quite as readily as the others, but still offers a relatively cheesy consistency.
This variety was great on grilled turkey burgers. These shreds melt and stretch just like dairy cheese! And again, the cheddar has that elusive cheesy tang, making it appealing to dairy cheese eaters and non-dairy eaters alike.
A quick search of the Follow Your Heart website turned up seven stores within 25 miles of my little town that carry Follow Your Heart products, so hopefully they should be easy to find near you, too.

What Others Are Saying ...
Our entire family, immediate and extended, enjoyed this dairy-free and soy-free cheese alternative. Many comments were made about the perfect cheesy tang. The only qualm is that a couple of the varieties required extra coaxing to melt.
