Vegan Boursin is delicious. It's available in health food stores.

Trader Joe carries vegan Boursin. Oh my ! Can't tell the difference. No one was the wiser at my luncheon.

We are trying out a new Swiss cheese recipe. Its base is both raw cashews and blanched almonds. Can't wait to dig into it at lunch time tomorrow and give it a try.

Does any one have other recommendations about a non-dairy mozzarella substitute? I have become lactose-intolerant. I don't care whether the product is vegan. It seems like Target is a good place to shop for vegan products.
I am also looking for good pizzas with cheese substitutes. It does not have to be gluten-free.

LOL - yes, it's hard to please everyone. Getting the mission - "make something that tastes just like milk, cream, cheese, yogurt, etc - but it can't have anything actually derived from animals, or made by genetic engineering" - that's a pretty tall order, even for food scientists!

365 non-dairy mozzarella is available at Whole Foods. That's their house brand. If you do not have a Whole Foods, it's available on Amazon.

Target may have Daiya, the original non-milk cheese. Near me, Walmart also has it. They also have frozen pizza with vegetarian/vegan cheese.

Let me know what you think!

Target has a store brand non-dairy mozzarella that isn't half bad.

There is also this which as far as I know is the only liquid/pourable non-dairy cheeze. It was pretty good when I used it in a baked ziti, but kind of pricey

I bought some Violife shreds at my local Food Lion. It is made from coconut oil and potato starch. I plan to make a pizza from scratch. I want to see if the Violife passes the husband test.

I live too far from a Target or Whole Foods to make them everyday shopping options.

How does one ship the liquid product from Amazon? Doesn't require refrigeration?

Violife is the brand we recommend. It's the best tasting mozzarella-like cheese we have tasted. We buy the Violife Just Mozzarella Vegan Perfect Pizza Cheese shreds.

Thanks. I made a pizza using the Violife shreds and the usual other toppings. My husband said he could not tell the difference. I also thought the taste was very acceptable. I am on the way to living with lactose-intolerance, although I crave ice cream.
