Dairy Free Nacho Cheeze Sauce

Dairy Free Nacho Cheeze Sauce motherhood university

This dairy free gem is cashew based and very much like our Mac and Trees recipe. Simply modify the liquid and spices and ta-da!


1 cup raw cashews soaked

1 cup water (less of you want it a little thicker)

1 whole pimento

1 Tbsp lemon juice

1/3 cup nutritional yeast

2 tsp onion powder

1 tsp garlic

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp chili powder


  • soak the cashews (the better your blender the less time you need to soak) at least 10-15 minutes although the Hubby has skipped this step many a time
  • drain the cashews then place all the ingredients in the blender (I’m using a Vitamix) and blend until smooth
  • if you want to add some heat (I’m a wimp) feel free to add you favorite peppers

You can add a can of rotel, add sautéed Gimme Lean “sausage”, diced peppers or pour it over ships as it. My family is addicted to this “cheese” sauce, I hope yours will be too.
