Macadamia Cheese Spread

This cheesy-flavoured spread made from macademia nuts is SO delicious! If you soak your macademias, this can be ready within minutes. Store in an air-tight container and enjoy for breakfast or lunch or as a dip with some vegies. You can use pitaya powder from Just Blends (Australia) or Raw Nice (Europe) to colour this spread without nasties – or simply use water from boiled red cabbage with a splash of lemon to use it pink (explained in my post How To Naturally Colour Your Food here)
