How to Make Cashew Cheese


This vegan, Paleo, and dairy-free 'cheese' is easy to make at home from cashews, coconut oil, and water. A great cheese alternative for vegans.


  • 2 cups water, divided
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil


  1. Combine cashews and 1 1/2 cups room temperature water in a bowl. Cover with a clean towel to prevent dust from settling in the water, and soak 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Transfer soaked cashews to a blender. Add 1/2 cup fresh water and coconut oil. Process until smooth.
