Instructions
  1. Take your cashews and put in bowl. Cover with several inches of cool, filtered water.
  2. You can add 1 tsp of salt, which helps to breakdown anti-nutrients.
  3. Let soak overnight.If you don’t have time, just soak in filtered water for 1-2 hours.
  4. Next, take your almonds and dates and blend in food processor till the mixture starts to clump together.
  5. Put your crust mixture into a tall glass.
  6. Push your crust down so it’s tightly packed and evenly distributed, creating a nice foundation for your cheese.
  7. Next, drain your cashews and put in a food processor or powerful blender. Add your 8 tablespoons of liquid or softened coconut oil.
  8. Then add your honey, lemon juice, lemon rind, vanilla extract, salt and blend well. You might need to blend for a long time to create a smooth, creamy texture and breakdown all the cashews.
  9. Taste your “cheese” and add xylitol and/or natural food coloring to suit your needs. Both are totally optional.
  10. Carefully pour or scoop your cheese into your glass, on top of your crust. Use a spatula to smooth out the top so cheese is evenly distributed and looks pretty.
  11. You can dust the top of cake with dried coconut flakes or lemon slices.
  12. Put in refrigerator and let set for about an hour or two. Serve immediately.
  13. You can store leftovers in fridge for 1 week or cut individual pieces and store in freezer.
