Homemade Alfredo Sauce: Whole30, Paleo, Vegan

This homemade Whole30 Alfredo sauce is super creamy, with a garlic and cheese-life flavor, except it’s completely Paleo, vegan and dairy-free. It’s cashew based, and only takes a few simple ingredients and a few minutes to whip up. This paleo alfredo sauce goes great over chicken, veggies or vegetable noodles, in casseroles and more. It’s a much healthier alternative to store-bought alfredo, with no additives or sugar!
