Vegan Avocado Alfredo

Before becoming vegan back in May, I really loved me some pasta with alfredo sauce.  So, of course I had to come up with a vegan friendly version!  This is so good that even omnivores can enjoy it too.

Vegan Avocado Alfredo

The avocado gives it the creamy texture that you get with a traditional alfredo.  When it comes to food, avocado makes everything better. 🙂  There is actually a little sauce left over that you can use a healthy dip for your veggies.  This dish is one of the quickest meals I have made so far.

  1. This sounds yummy! I have been considering going vegan but can't seem to find almond milk without a bunch of stuff added to it such as carregeenan. I know I can make my own but like the calcium added to the store varieties. What brand do you use?
    1. I make my own almond milk and take a calcium supplement. I heard Silk almond milk has no carrageenan in it. You may want to look into Pacific brand as well. We get their oatmilk and it has no carageenan in it.
  2. This sounds delicious! I'm excited to try this at some point since alfredo is so yummy but so bad for you. Also, what is nutritional yeast and where in the supermarket would it be located? I'm sure this isn't the stuff in the packets you would find in the baking aisle, right? Thanks for enlightening me, I'm a little new to all this but I'm learning so much! :-)
    1. Nutritional yeast is not like bread yeast at all. It comes in flake form and it can be found in most health food stores. I get mine at Sprouts and it is up front near all the bulk bins. It is very healthy and is also a great substitute for cheese in vegan dishes. It has a cheesy and nutty taste. I really like it. If you try this, I would love to hear how you like it. :)
  3. Thank you for this recipe! I read the ingredients list on my alfredo jar last night, and am not a happy camper! I am willing to give this recipe a try, even though I do not like avacados. Do you think that the avacados are a really prominent flavor in this dish? Thanks again for another great recipe!
    1. Honestly, I didn't think the avocado flavor was strong at all. I tasted the nutritional yeast and garlic mostly. I would love to know if you end up liking it.
    1. I am sorry this didn't work out for you. :( I believe we let the pasta and sauce sit uncovered for a few minutes. If it did not thicken, you could always add a little arrowroot to it.
  4. I'm not vegan but would love to make this recipe since it seems like a really lovely alternative to a delicious but unhealthy dish. I don't have nutritional yeast, can I just use cheese in the recipe?
    1. I also am not vegan, but am trying to sneak some healthy dinners in for my girls. I think this is a winner. I would love to know if you tried this with cheese and if it worked. Otherwise I'll have to hunt down nutritional yeast. :)
      1. Added the cheese and it was great. My 4 and 2 yo daughters ate it all. For the non vegans, I think some diced chicken would be great too.
