This Probiotic Vegan Cashew Spread makes making your own vegan cheese spread easy. Use cashews and probiotic capsules for a dairy-free delicious spread.
When the weather turns colder and the seasons change, we are all more at risk for illness. In this time we like to give our systems a bit of help with supplements, such as Vitamin C, Zinc and also probiotics.
Now I am not one that enjoys swallowing pills, and I only seldom like fermented foods. Like, I love yogurt, and sourdough, but hate sauerkraut or pickles.
So getting enough probiotics, for me, is a challenge. I can only have non-dairy yogurts, hate pickles and can’t have any dairy. Oh, and the thing about swallowing pills, I also try to avoid that.
So I love easy solutions that help me get my daily dose of probiotic bacteria. Enter this Probiotic Vegan Cashew Spread.
Now you know we are all for easy recipes. We hate spending half the day in the kitchen. But making this recipe takes little actual time. Most of the time is just waiting for the cashews to soak and for the probiotic bacteria to do their work.
That said, if you’re willing to play the waiting game, this recipe will bring you a delicious vegan “cream cheese” spread, full of healthy gut bacteria, with little effort. And you can always make a double batch if you will turn into a heavy user, like us 🙂
And by the way, try adding also some fresh chives or other herbs in just before serving, and you will turn this Probiotic Vegan Cashew Spread from delicious to fabulous!
