Vegan Hemp Seed Alfredo Sauce

Hemp seeds and cashews are blended with an array of flavors and spices to create the best ever vegan alfredo sauce. This sauce is thick, super creamy, and exploding with flavor. This is definitely one that you can "trick" your non-vegan friends and family members into eating!

  • ½ cup raw cashews*
  • ½ cup shelled hemp seeds
  • ½ cup plain unsweetened almond milk*
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
  • ½-1 teaspoon sea salt (I recommend using a full teaspoon if you are not going to salt your pasta!)
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Small pinch of nutmeg (optional)


  • Soak the cashews in warm water for at least 30 minutes to soften. Drain before using.
  • Add all ingredients to a high-powered blend and blend on high for 2 minutes or until super creamy and smooth.
  • Serve over your favorite pasta or veggies.
  • Refrigerate leftovers.


*To make this sauce nut-free, omit the raw cashews and use 1 cup shelled hemp seeds and nut-free plant-based milk.
