Easy Dairy Free Cauliflower Mac and Cheese {vegan + paleo}

YOU. GUYS.

Easy dairy free cauliflower mac and cheese is in the HOUSE and it has got me all 😭 over here cuz I’m so excited to share it with you.

Because a good recipe for mac and cheese is never something you should keep to yourself.

I mean, you can MAKE mac and cheese and keep it for yourself – that’s pretty standard practice around our house. But the recipe, well that’s something that get’s better the more you spread around the cheesy-comfort-in-a-bowl LOVE.

Easy dairy free cauliflower mac and cheese is the healthiest and most delicious way to satisfy your comfort food cravings without any regrets!

I have to be honest with you, this is not reaaaaal mac and cheese. Like the kind with noodles and actual cheese. But I’m guessing you already figured that out cuz you guys are smart like that.

I just knew you would get understand where I’m going with this one 😉

This is a cauliflower dish dressed up like mac and cheese for those days when you just really neeeeeed some comfort food in your life, but wanna keep it healthy and guilt free.

And also spoiler alert – the sauce doesn’t taste exactly like cheese, really it’s more reminiscent of cheese. But I’m pretty sure it’s about as cheesy as you can get without being actual cheese. And it does satisfy exactly the same thing that real cheese does.

Is that weird? Maybe. Awesome? Absolutely.

Especially when draped over tenderly steamed cauliflower and loaded up into a bowl for all the comfort and zero regret.

Like literally none. Says the girl who has eaten three (small…ish) bowls of it in one sitting.

This is, essentially, a mac and cheese for everyone.

My dairy free / gluten free / keto / paleo / vegan / health minded peeps – I have definitely got you covered with this one.

😍😍😍

Super excited to share some details on my favorite plant based Seattle scoop shop, Frankie and Jo’s.

Besides being a company that you wholeheartedly want to stand behind (read more about their mission HERE) they have also totally nailed that illusive perfect plant based scoop.

Unlike a lot of scoop shops that primarily serve regular ice cream, with a plant based flavor or two on the side, plant based ice cream is the only thing they do, and they do it SO well.

They use all plant and vegetable based ingredients for their ice cream, organic ingredients whenever possible, and everything is gluten free. EVEN THEIR WAFFLE CONES. That’s right, even their waffle cones. 

That’s a game changer, friends. Amirite?

how to make green juice with a blender

For YEARS I thought that since I didn’t own a juicer (hellllo only-so-much-cabinet-space in my kitchen), the only vibrant and healthy green juices I would be enjoying were the $7 one’s from fancy AF juice bars. Which, I admit, I do totally love. But unfortunately, my budget does not.

And so I finally got to thinking..

Can you make a delicious green juice without a juicer? 

And the answer, obviously, is YES! Otherwise this would be a pretty pointless post, right? 

And I ain’t here to waste your time, no way. Not with delicious green juice on the horizon.

Delicious and vibrant green juice without a juicer is possible with this easy blender recipe!

How do you do it? With a blender! And it’s actually really easy. 

Can I get a hell yes for small kitchen victories + one more way to use your beloved vitamix! (or blendtec.. or ninja, or kitchenaid… don’t wanna leave anyone out 😉)

And believe it or not, it ends up being just a biiiit more economical than a daily run to the juice bar. 

Okay maybe a lot more economical.

I haven’t done the exact math, but based on a rough estimate: one batch of this recipe will run you about $7, which is about the same price juice bars charge for one juice 12-16 oz juice.

This recipe makes about 3-4 times that and is just as delicious.

BOO. YA.
