    Wink Any thoughts on almond cheese

    I have been totally dairy free since going primal 6 weeks ago. I feel great but a friend of mine has just brought up the subject of almond cheese. I have not tried it but was just wondering what the general consensus was on the subject. I always find the information that you all share very enlightening so thanks for your feedback.

    Almond was not intended to ever be made into cheese. Imagine the amount of processing and the chemicals added to make a nut into cheese...no better than soy cheese IMO. Run, don't walk away from it.

    I agree with Damiana -- you'd be better off with real, whole milk, raw cheese once in a while, unless you're sensitive to dairy.

    Ditto - I used to eat that stuff (assuming you're talking about store bought), until I started paying attention to the ingredients; then I ended up throwing it out and not even finishing it.

    I've made it. It tastes good. You can add any seasonings that you want. I use the almond meal left over from making my own almond milk, lemon juice, salt and agar agar or unflavored beef gelatin. I don't see any difference eating homemade almond cheese or eating almond butter.

    Agree, neither is fit food
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    If you've made it yourself using pronounceable ingredients, then that's great. I'm talking about the processed and packaged stuff, though.

    I guess I never even considered eating the store-bought version. I was just looking for a more palatable way to eat the left over almond meal from making almond milk. It just seemed like a waste if I threw it in the garbage. Now I sometimes just feed it to the chickens.

    Wait! You found a use for the almond meal leftover from making almond milk? Does it work with coconut meal leftover from making coconut milk?

    Not sure. Although, you know how fine it is after making the milk, couldn't you just dry it and use it again as a 'breading' say like for shrimp or something? I've also dried the almond meal in my dehydrator and used it to top salads, yogurt, etc..

    If you find a tasty way to repurpose the coconut meal, let me know cuz as of now, I'm feeding that to the chickens too. I did think about putting it in some primal ice cream recipe but then thought that I wouldn't like the texture. I suppose it could be used for coconut shrimp
