If for whatever reason you do not consume dairy, I bet you have searched around for plant-based cheeses that have that similar delicious flavor. In my opinion, cashew-based cheeses are the best option, not only are they delicious but they deliver loads of healthy nutrients. Check out this easy plant-based cheese recipe that you can use on potato wedges or french fries, nachos, sandwiches or any dish you wish.


For fries

  • Pack of frozen French fries or make homemade potato wedges

For dairy-free cheese

  • ½ cup peeled and chopped carrots
  • ½ cup chopped yellow potato
  • 1/3 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup cashew milk made in the NutraMilk
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch cayenne

For cashew milk

  • 1 cup (150g) cashews
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt (optional)


  • Start by making fresh cashew milk with the NutraMilk:
    • Place cashews in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 3 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Open the container lid, add water and replace lid.
    • Press Mix (do not change the default Mix time).
    • Press Start.
    • Press Dispense.
    • Press Start and open spigot to fill your storage container.
  • Cook french fries according to package instructions.
  • While the french fries are baking or frying, steam or sauté the carrots and potatoes until quite tender, about 20 minutes.

  • Place raw cashews in the NutraMilk and process for 2 minutes. Then add the cooked vegetables to the NutraMilk, followed the cashew milk, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, salt, and cayenne. Process until smooth.

  • Pour the cheesy mixture into a medium pan and bring it to a bubble over medium heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for about 5 minutes, whisking often, or until it thickens to your desired consistency.

  • Serve with french fries or potato wedges. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. If it thickens too much, simply reheat with enough milk to reach your desired consistency. Enjoy!
