It’s the foundation of my Mac ‘n Kees both the original and extra creamy versions and is used to make the Ol’ Linstead Keeza.

By varying the consistency:

  • Increasing or reducing the amount of water used;
  • Substituting the water for coconut milk/cream or some other dairy-free milk substitute; or
  • Tweaking the amount of nutritional yeast used

there are countless variations that can be made.
