This cream cheese is ideal for making sweets such as tiramisu, cheesecakes and toppings, among others, without having to resort to cheeses of animal origin or industrial vegetable cheeses.

In addition to making any sweet that needs cream cheese, it is also perfect to use as a base when making other vegetable cheeses with more intense flavor or that we want to season with other ingredients.

Notes

  • The warmer the environment, the sooner this cream cheese will ferment, so it will acquire intensity earlier.
  • If you want to get a more intense flavor, we recommend you let it rest for 48 hours. In this way, in sweet recipes the contrast will be greater.
  • Well covered, this cream cheese lasts 2 weeks if we keep it in the fridge, and up to 4 months if we keep it in the freezer.
