Violife Dairy Free Pizza Cheese


Violife Dairy Free Pizza Cheese

I have suffered cheese envy for many years but now thanks to the popularity of Vegan alternatives, I am enjoying embracing this food group once more. As time goes on the quality of alternatives is improving. My latest find is Violife thanks to my local independent organic store. Seriously I was like a kid on Christmas morning and have gone into cheese overload. Que making lots of pizza and dusting off the sandwich toaster.

Violife Dairy Free Pizza Cheese

Violife is the cheese of my dreams, it melts like snow on a warm day. In my world, that's pretty amazing. It also has a nice creamy taste, I dare not say whether it's as good as dairy cheese because my memories are a bit dusty. However, I think it is pretty similar to Vegusto No Moo Melty.

Violife is also available in blocks, slices and creamy (aka spreadable) in a variety of flavours. Since drafting out this post I have gone ahead and bought the Tomato & Basil slices. I paid £2.10 for the pizza cheese but I have seen it in another store for a few pennies cheaper. Violife is suitable for vegetarians & vegans, dairy, lactose, gluten, soya and palm oil free.

UPDATE: Tesco Extra Stores stock Original in block and slices.

  2. I love Violife and it's the reason I was able to make the final switch to veganism.

  5. Must agree this is the best vegan cheese in the uk. I can even eat it on a sandwich uncooked which is a big thumbs up :) it's the most similar tasting to real cheese. I'd say like Edam in texture and smell. Yum!

    1. same here I can have cheese on crackers once again, none of the others I like unless cooked. That's probably a good description, I did love Edam as a kid probably explains why I like it so much :)

  6. I love this stuff, usually buy it when I pop into Planet Organic and also have been buying the tomato slices - probably should stop myself from eating so much of it, but now I really want to try a grilled cheese sandwich haha. The price is also great compared to lots of other vegan cheese brands x

    1. This was an old blog post that got republished by a Blogger hiccup when I was editing. Since writing I've tried a few more flavours and I like the tomato slices. Before Violife I was consuming very little DF cheese, couldn't find one I was happy with.
