Wow...I was so impressed with this amazing recipe from Cassidy whose blog is Cooking Gluten and (Dairy) Free.  If you are dairy free this is a recipe you will want to check out.
As I was making this recipe - I could hardly stop tasting it - it was that good.
Remember my steal of a deal blender?
I did not think this blender had the capacity to smoothly whip up this vegan cream cheese.  It did take a bit of time, and I had to scrape down the sides a few times, as well as add a bit more liquid to the recipe than what it called for.  It turned out super smooth and delicious.  If you have a VitaMix or BlendTec blender it will be super easy to make.
This cashew cream cheese is delicious on it's own, or with crackers, as a dip for vegetables and even as a spread on sandwiches.
If you are looking for an alternative to cream cheese - this is a must try.  Thank you Cassidy for such a great recipe!

  1. Dang you are hitting on some great things these days. I love cashew cream cheese. The first time I used something similar was a cashew sour cream recipe from GF girl that I used in a wild rice dish. Thanks too for the link to another great blog.

  2. Cassidy's cashew cream looks delicious, but her recipe calls for 'coconut creamer'... I googled it, and I still don't know what that is... We have cans of coconut cream... is that the same thing?

    1. Janet - I do not know what Coconut Creamer is either. We have cans of coconut cream too. I just used Soy Milk, and it turned out fabulous. I am sure Almond milk would work well too.

  3. I love the idea of using cashew cream in sandwiches! Bet it was delicious!
    ps: There's a brand "So Delicious" that makes coconut creamer to be used in coffee or any recipes. I think that's what Cassidy must have used in her recipe. Just thought to share it with you and Janet 🙂
