Creamy-Dreamy Herb Cashew-Hemp Cheese [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

OK you caught me… I LOVE creamy spreadable cheese so much that I rarely use it to actually ‘spread’. I eat it with a spoon straight out of the box.

If something is left after my spoon invasion, I use it as a veggie dip. But if you have more self-discipline than I do, you can totally have this creamy-dreamy herby delicious cashew spread cheese on bagels, crackers, sandwiches and more.

The herby flavor and touch of lemon juice gives this vegan cheese recipe the extra delightfulness you’ve been looking for in vegan cheeses.

Who said cheesy yumminess cannot be plant-based?
