The hardest thing I found in going Raw was giving up cheese, even though in my head I often put myself in the shoes of the cows and think would I like my boobs attached to a machine all day and my little baby taken away from me! Sorry for the buzz kill there! So what is the alternative! It's RAW Cheese and it's pretty darn good!

This is the simplest recipe and the closest recipe to making cheese that tastes good cheese. You can add different flavours to this base recipe, like a pesto, sun dried tomatoes, red peppers etc..  and it will store in the fridge in a sealed container for about two weeks – good luck trying to keep it for that long though.

  •  2 cups of (soaked over night) Macadamia Nuts or a mix of macadamia and cashews is also lovely
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon of probiotics


Place mixture into a cheese cloth and put on top of a sieve so the excess water drains out. Place a bit of weight on the top so it helps push the water out.

Cover and leave at room temp for 24 hours.

Then remove and mix with a pinch of salt and Squeeze of lemon and 2 tea spoons of nutritional yeast.

Place in a mold and you have RAW cheese, you can place it straight into the fridge or you can also place it in the dehydrator and it will form a rind similar to what dairy cheese does.

And there you have it... RAW cheese.
