  • 1/2 cup raw cashew butter or macadamia nut butter

Preparation

  1. In a food processor or high-speed blender, combine the coconut meat, cashew butter, sea salt, lemon juice, and probiotic powder, and blend until smooth.
  2. Scoop into a bowl, and cover. Let sit out overnight, until it is tangy (give the probiotics a chance to work).
  3. Once it is tangy, mix in the cranberries, and place in the refrigerator until chilled. Once chilled, scoop onto a sheet of plastic wrap, and use it to shape into a log (kind of rolling it on the inside of the plastic).
  4. Spread out pecans on a plate, and then roll the cheese log in it using the plastic to assist you so it does not stick to your hands. Place in the refrigerator for a few hours to firm up before serving.

Notes

Keeps for about 1 week in the refrigerator.
