What’s Inside: Looking for the best dairy-free cheese sauce? Hereare three recipes to make on repeat. Plus, they’re Paleo, Whole30, and AIP!
The Best Cheese Sauce Is Dairy-Free!
When I first eliminated dairy from my diet many moons ago, I felt a lot of things. I felt way better, I saw less skin breakouts and irritations, and my digestion improved, to name a few. But, I also felt a dairy-shaped gaping hole in the depth of my soul. And so began the search for dairy-free substitutes to be able to enjoy the foods I missed most like mac and cheese, ice cream, and, of course, a good ol’ cheese board.
Just getting started on AIP (or need a refresh)?
Here's an easy 1-week meal plan using some of my most popular AIP recipes to make it stress-free and delicious.
This post is all about the sauce, though, because cheese sauce can be used in so many different ways. Between pouring it on veggies, gluten-free pasta, veggie noodles, and using it in casseroles, it’s become quite a staple in my fridge because it’s easy to make and delicious!
The three best dairy-free cheese sauces highlighted in this post are my go-to’s, and two of them are AIP-friendly, meaning they’re nut-free, vegan, and packed with veggies. This is also a great way to get kids or picky eaters to consume more veggies (in a sneaky way).
