    These look fabulous! Have you tried these using something besides almond meal? Just wondering, as I can’t have nut flours 😦

  2. Great idea re graham cracker crust since my husband can’t tolerate almond flour. Yum!

      Yes try it with gf graham crackers…they are nice little treats. My girlfriend makes a non gf version that she freezes (without the fruit) and then takes out and adds fruit whenever she has unexpected company. I would think you could do the same with these.

    Wow, they look great. I was wondering, is there any way to make these lactose free as well?

    Here’s a link that is great for substitutions.

    From the book Clean Eating here’s their’s I’ve used it and it’s not a bad subitute. It is suppose to have the same consistency and very close in taste to cream cheese. Have done it with Coconut Milk yogurt and it worked nicely, but did have a bit of different taste, but still good!

    cream cheese substitute
    1 Tub of low-fat plain yogurt
    Cheese cloth (you can find this on the same aisle as parchment paper)
    colander to drain
    mixing bowl

    Place the colander over the mixing bowl. Wet the cheese cloth and drape over the colander. Dump the yogurt onto the cheese cloth so that the yogurt can drain through the cloth. Leave overnight in the fridge.

    The next morning put only the cheese left in the cheese cloth in a tupperware bowl to store. Discard the liquid left in mixing bowl.

    You can eat it straight (like cream cheese) and you can also mix spinach and other flavors into it for a great dip.
