Since I have not been able to have dairy in over five years, raw cashews have become very good friends of mine. Well here it is… Who doesn’t love cream cheese? I mean, let’s be serious here people… Cream Cheese is (was, okay it still is even though I can’t eat it anymore) delicious!! So since I can not eat the dairy filled kind anymore, I was sooooo happy when I figured out that I can make it! Yay!!
Yes, okay, alright, it may not be identical to the real thing… Nope, it’s better!! Well since I haven’t had the real thing in more than five years, yes this is better! Many people have tried it that have more recently gone off of dairy and they love it too! I hope you will…
