Herbed Cream Cheese, RAW

Mmmmm, yeah I did :)
I had some raw bagels that Lolo had given me when I visited her. They were from 'LIVE' raw restaurant, & they were begging for some cream cheese :D
I put on my creative pants & went to work. I figured a cheesy herbed cream cheese would be nummy: I figured right. Also, I added in celery to reduce the fat, while also cutting the need for added sodium. Ooooooo, look at me go ;) Fantastic on top of the bagels, it was even more awesome in a recipe that I'll share in another post!

Enjoy, Rawkstars ;)

3/4 cup cashews, soaked
1/4 cup water
1/2 bunch chives
1/2 bunch oregano
3 tbs nutritional yeast
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup celery, chopped

1) In a food processor, process cashews until finely chopped. Add in water, chives, oregano, nutritional yeast, & garlic. Continue to process until creamy.
2) Lastly, add in the celery. Process until well-combined & a smooth texture is created. 
3) Store in a jar in the fridge, until cooled. Serve on bagels, crackers, etc.

peace, love, food <3

How long does this last in the fridge?

I stored it for about a week. I used some of the leftovers on raw zucchini/cucumber noodles :D
