Dairy Free Spinach Pesto

Prep Time 10 min Serves 1.5 cups     adjust servings


  • 10-15 basil leaves
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder or 2-3 cloves
  • salt to taste


  1. Throw everything in the food processor and mix until combined. Since my food processor’s lid broke and I am waiting for a new one to arrive, I had to use my Vitamix for this. I can tell you it was a bit harder in the Vitamix than the food processor.


Recipe Notes

This recipe made about 1 1/2 cups and should last a couple weeks in the fridge. You can also freeze it for longer storage. Enjoy!
