Dairy-Free Mac & Cheese

This dairy-free take on mac & cheese is the original’s healthier cousin. Cashews, combined with nutritional yeast, yield a cheesy consistency that makes for the ultimate comfort food. As an added bonus, nutritional yeast provides vitamin B12, which is typically only found in animal foods. You can also enjoy this versatile sauce as a dip or in our cauliflower mash all with the help of your Nutribullet. This Dairy-Free Mac & Cheese is so silky, rich, creamy and cheesy that it will fool even your most discerning, veggie-sniffing child.
