Ingredients description

1 cup basic cream cheese (see recipe below)

2 Tbs. raw honey

1/3 cup dried cranberries

1/3 cup chopped walnuts

 

Basic Vegan Cream Cheese

2 cups raw cashews (for smooth ‘cream cheese’ texture)

1 cup filtered water to soak cashews

1/2 - 1 tsp. probiotics powder (depending on potency)

1/2 -1 tsp. salt

1-2 tsp. nutritional yeast

1-2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice

Directions

Mix cream cheese with honey in a food processor until smooth. Add in cranberries and walnuts. Pulse until ingredients are finely chopped and mixed, but not smooth.

Top vegetables, crackers, or apples with Cranberry Walnut Dip, then drizzle the Cranberry Salad Dressing (see below) over the top.



Basic Vegan Cream Cheese

Soak raw nuts for 4 hours. Rinse and drain nuts. Place nuts and water in a Vita Mix blender, and blend until very smooth. Gently mix in the probiotics powder. Pour mixture into a nut milk bag or a cheesecloth and close the top and twist until the bag is wrapped around the cheese mixture tightly. Secure top with rubber band and place bag in a strainer. Put strainer over a bowl, and put a heavy weight on top of the cheese to press the liquid out. Leave on the counter at room temperature for 24 hours.

 

After the cheese has cultured, take it out of the nut milk bag and mix in the salt, lemon, and nutritional yeast. Start with minimum amount of salt and nutritional yeast, and add more according to taste.
