Dairy Free Cashew Cream Sauce

I am constantly soaking cashews on my counter, come over my house and I will show you. But really, they are so versatile. Cashews make for a creamy consistency and I find they pair nicely in recipes with nutritional yeast flakes. I use cashews for all sorts of things like this Alfredo sauce and my all time favorite cream cheese which can double as a spreadable cheese.

This dairy free cashew cream sauce has 4 simple ingredients. I am 99% sure all 4 of these ingredients are in your pantry.

Another great feature of this sauce is that it is ridiculously affordable. I know there are alfredo sauces you can buy in a jar already made and they don’t compare to the taste of this homemade one. Plus they are usually around $7-$8!

What you will need

  • Food processor
