Rawlfredo Sauce

Yes, I made that up. I find it fun 🙂 It’s a raw Alfredo Sauce. Because I love creamy delicious sauces but my health cannot afford to indulge in them often, I have created my own. It tastes amazing on zucchini pasta, as a dip or pretty much anything you would normally use a creamy alfredo sauce on. I love coming up with recipes like this because as a french woman, butter and cream are part of my heritage. I do not want to give them up. Nor do I want to give up feeling amazing. So I can eat this kind of sauce anytime I want, and feel like I am staying true to my roots, and indulge in the real stuff on occasion.



  • 1 1/2 cups cashews (dry measure), soaked at least 4 hours
  • 1/8 cup lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic ( I would have added more if the kids weren’t eating it)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 TBS nutritional yeast
  • 1 TBS fresh parsley (optional)


  • Put everything in the blender and blend on high.
  • Adjust water according to desired consistency. This one came out pretty thick, which I really like.
