This cashew cheese is fluffy and airy, yet heavy, creamy and full of flavor, it is the perfect combination of textures. You can shape it in a bowl, or you can whip it like a dip. You could also make a cheese log and sprinkle crushed nuts on top.

Anything you can do with regular cream cheese you can do with this cultured cream cheese. To learn more about how to make the fermented cheese base please check out the cultured cashew cream cheese base!

Cultured Cashew Cream Cheese can have many different flavors, a little bit of shallot, freshly cracked pepper, cayenne and you have a killer cheese spread.

Or you could go a different route by adding walnuts or pecans, cranberries or figs and a little bit of maple syrup. Any kind of cream cheese you desire can be recreated with simple fresh ingredients.
