Vegan Cheddar Cheese Dip

Today I was in the mood for old-fashioned cheese dip! Tangy and rich, this tastes just like sharp cheddar cheese cheese, except it is 100% dairy-free, made with luscious coconut butter, lemon, nutritional yeast, and carrot. It tastes especially satisfying with raw vegetables, Gluten-Free No-Cheese Crackers or Paleo Sesame Seaweed Crackers! You can store in the refrigerator for 4 days, or freeze for longer periods of time. You’ll nee a food processor. Makes 1 1/4 cups dip.
