At the beginning of 2014 I made a horrible discovery… I had developed a dairy allergy. I had been dealing with some super annoying and downright uncomfortable symptoms for quite some time and couldn’t put my finger on the problem until I finally connected the dots and eliminated dairy from my diet which literally resolved my issues within weeks. Gone, poof, vanished into thin air. I realized after years of overdoing it on dairy my body had simply had enough and could no longer handle it. That’s when I discovered a whooooole newwwwww world (cue Arielle singing), of dairy free cheese. I dived right in and have never looked back.

While I have yet to make my own cultured dairy free cheese recipe (I’ve toyed with dairy free cheese sauces and cream cheese in the kitch), I have been able to enjoy many recipes from bloggers I adore and tons of the dairy free cheese options available to me made by small local brands in my city.

It seems dairy free cheeses are on the rise as more people shift to plant-based diets or discover that they have a dairy allergy or are intolerant to dairy products. It could also be that many people are now beginning to understand the inflammatory effects dairy has in the bodyand just want to reduce their overall intake. Whatever the reason, I’m glad there’s so many options available when it comes to dairy free cheese!

So, to get to the point here…today I’m sharing 11 delicious and drool-worthy dairy free cheese recipes from the blogosphere for you to try if you are into the dairy-free cheese world or just dipping your toes in the water.
