Meltable Vegan Mozzarella

Perfectly recreating the gooey creamy goodness of regular mozzarella, this recipe is completely vegan, contains a fraction of the fat and ZERO cholesterol.
Melts completely at room temperature, so keep it in the freezer where it could last forever (until you taste it, then it disappears in a flash).
Takes less than 20 minutes to make (and a few hours to "set"), so what are you waiting for?

  • 1 cup plain coconut yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbsp miso paste
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder


  • Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Transfer the blended mixture to a small saucepan and cook over a medium heat for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. You’ll want to keep a close eye while it cooks. After about 2 minutes, stir mixture constantly.
  • After 3-5 minutes, the mixture will begin to thicken. Continue stirring for another 1-2 minutes until it becomes very sticky then remove from the heat.
  • Pour the mixture into a freezer-safe container with lid, and freeze overnight.
  • Remove from freezer. Working quickly to avoid the cheese melting, cut it into pieces that are a suitable size for your food processor. Then place into your food processor and use the shredding function to grate it.
  • Place grated cheese back into the freezer until ready to use, then use it to top your pizzas, nachos, quesadillas or any other way you use shredded cheese!

    I just made this delicious, homemade vegan mozzarella cheese for the first time! ? I think it took me awhile to get around to making it, because I thought it would be difficult? So not true! I had all the ingredients on hand, and it was sooooo easy to make. The flavour and texture were both fantastic! So glad I made it, and will make it from now on❤️.

    Thank you so much Gabrielle, for all your delicious recipes❤️❤️❤️
