    From the girl who doesn’t like mac & cheese, I am certainly on some mac & cheese kick over the past few months.

    Now don’t get all crazy on me, I used to eat Kraft mac & cheese all the time as a kid but I don’t really enjoy cheese all that much. Unless we are talking sheep’s or goat’s milk, I try to stick with my non-dairy alternatives.

    After making that 5-ingredient Creamy Squash Pasta, Cauliflower Mac & Cheese and Vegetarian Buffalo Mac & Cheese, I wanted to whip up one that had a bit of a flare to it. Aka something GREEN and delicious and flavorful.

    For this dairy-free Green Goddess Mac & Cheese, we are using cashews, ripe avocado, basil leaves, nut milk and Bonafide Provisions Revitalize Drinkable Veggies to create the most flavorful and dreamy sauce. I love that this recipe is ready in less than 15 minutes and is so creamy and satisfying for lunch or dinner. Plus it is filled with healthy fats thanks to the cashews and avocado and some greens from basil and Bonafide Provision’s Revitalize Drinkable Veggies.

    You have likely see Bonafide’s Drinkable Veggies in your local grocery store. For me it is in the beverage section. Unlike their traditional bone broth. which is in the freezer. They have 5 deliciously nourishing flavors and everything is filled with organic veggies and their bone broth. Today we are using the Revitalize flavor that is a blend of spinach, spring pea, lemon, mint, asparagus and their chicken bone broth. The lemon and mint added help with digestion and I love the subtle flavor it adds to the blend.

    Bone broth has been a huge part of my daily eats and life ever since I started eating meat again last year. I am biased and love Bonafide Provisions and how they offer a variety of products. If bone broth scares you, definitely try their drinkable veggies first. You can drink them cold or reheat and have as a warm beverage or soup.

    Would the avocado and basil be blended with the cashews?

    I’m new to all these cooking methods! I recently started cutting out processed foods and sugars. Can you explain the cashew soaking process? What do you add to the recipe…just the water from when you soaked them? The actual cashews?

    Any replacement for the drinkable veggies by any chance? I have regular bone broth but I’m assuming that won’t work :(. Would love to make this tonight!
