I came up with this simple cheese in the process of making something else entirely; one of those happy accidents. I really like the mildly sweet, nutty flavor that the coconut adds. Bring on the bagel!

Cashew Coconut Cream Cheese [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Vegan

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cashews, soaked overnight, rinsed, & drained
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, soaked for ~15 minutes, drained
  • 1 tbsp. sweet white miso
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. agave nectar
  • pinch salt

Preparation

  1. Add all ingredients to the bowl of a food processor and process until very smooth.  You’ll need to stop the machine and scrape the sides every few minutes.  This will get smooth – it just takes time and patience.  I prefer a food processor here over a high-speed blender because it’s so much easier to scrape out the cheese once it’s smooth.
  2. Line a mini-loaf pan or other small/shallow dish with a couple of layers of cheese cloth.  Scrape the cheese into the dish, pressing down so that the cheese gets into the corners.  Press down the cheesecloth over the top, place in the refrigerator and place something heavy on top of the cheese/cheesecloth.
  3. Let the cheese rest in the fridge for 24+ hours.
  4. Carefully remove the cheese from the pan.  Take off the cheesecloth and schemer a big schlab on a bagel!

I was into my 30s before I began running and working out, but I was still missing something: diet.  The animal products I was consuming were undoing the benefits of all of that physical activity.  Today my body runs on a plant-based, low-fat, low sugar diet that keeps me healthy and strong. I’m sharing – via An Unrefined Vegan - what I've learned by offering simple, delicious and nutritious recipes that nurture body, soul and conscience.

I've made the break from dairy milk, but haven't found a cheese to replace with yet. This gives me hope. It's a long journey, but worthwhile!
