I just got this off Deb's discussion board:

Healthy Cream Cheese Recipe
By Dr. Ben Kim on July 31, 2008 Healthy Dressings
If you enjoy cream cheese, I encourage you to give the following dairy-free and healthy cream cheese recipe a try. It calls for sweet cashews, a touch of fine olive oil, lemon juice, and fresh herbs as an optional ingredient.

Cashews are rich in a number of health-promoting nutrients, including magnesium, copper, tryptophan, and healthy fatty acids. A diet that is rich in high quality cashews can help keep your teeth and bones healthy, and help prevent high blood pressure.

Eating cashews with a carbohydrate-rich food - like apples - in the evening may help promote a good night's rest due to the high tryptophan content of cashews.

Best of all, this dairy-free cream cheese is far healthier for your cells than cream cheese that's made with dairy. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!


2 cups raw, organic cashews
3 tablespoons cold pressed, extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Green onions or chives (optional)


Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend into a smooth cream. Add just a few tablespoons of water at first, and add an additional tablespoon at a time as you blend until you reach the consistency that you're aiming for.

If you enjoy cream cheese with fresh herbs, add a heaping tablespoon of green onions, chives (or any other fresh herbs that are readily available) to the mix before you blend.

This healthy cream cheese can be used as a spread on your favorite bread. I especially enjoy eating it with Fuji apple slices as an evening snack.
