If you’re cutting back on dairy, nut cheeses are a healthy delicious alternative to dairy cheeses. They’re also so easy to make! I recommend adding in the water in smaller amounts and slowly adding more to suit your desired consistency. The amount of water required will vary depending on how long you soaked the nuts. The more high-powered your blender the better, to really turn the nuts into a smooth consistency, or you can use a food processor.
Macadamias are such a healthy delicious nut that are high in monounsaturated fatty acids, fiber, protein, vitamin B1, calcium, magnesium and manganese.
Note: This will keep for up to 2 weeks in an air-tight container in the fridge.
You can store these balls in organic sunflower oil which doesn’t solidify in the fridge like olive oil will. Add 1 tsp of whole peppercorns and a few tsp of thyme. Another option if you don’t want to make them decorative balls is to simply store this as a cream cheese in an air-tight container to use as a spread.
