Creamy Cashew Cheese Dip

This¬†¬†creamy vegan¬†cashew cheese dip is delicious, I’m addicted to it. This dip is a great alternative to dairy dips and is really simple to make. This dip is full of vitamins because of the ingredients used and its easy to digest. It’s also versatile to use, I’ve had it with vegetable sticks, with my sweet potato pita bread, as a side with dinner, you name it and I’ve probably had this dip with it.

Nutritional yeast is an inactive form of yeast used as a food, I picked some up in my local health food store but you can also find it in some supermarkets now too.
