4 cups macadamia nuts
Water (to cover)
¼ cup probiotic powder (any brand)
1. Place macadamia nuts in the blender. Cover with just enough water to come up to level with the nuts.
2. Add the probiotic powder. Whir in the blender until absolutely smooth (this may take about 10 minutes, so make sure your blender doesn’t get too hot). The consistency should be like cold cream.
3. Place in a mesh bag/cloth napkin and twist until the bag is sealed.
4. Place in a colander and put a weight on the top (I use a plate with a can of something) and put in a very warm place (like your dehydrator or the radiator) for up to 48 hours.

This cream cheese actually tastes like cream cheese, feels like it, and looks like it.
The secret is in the probiotics.
Note: Depending on your taste, you may want to use less probiotic or ferment for less time. Our house is only about 60 F, so it takes 48 hours to taste right.
Also please note: This fermented cream can be used as the starter in place of the probiotic for your next batch. I’d use fresh every 6 batches or so.
