I’m not going to lie. I really want to take a bath in this cheeze sauce.
I know. Fake cheese can’t taste good. It can’t! …I know. I used to feel that way too. But everything changed when Silk Pure Almond Milk entered the picture.
Low calorie, vegan, low fat, AND drop dead delicious? I want to meet these Silk people just so I can shake their hands (which is code for run up and hug them super enthusiastically).
Thanks to our favorite miracle ingredient, I could create a vegan ridiculously low calorie “cheese” sauce that is much better than that neon stuff from the blue box we all know and love.
As if it could get any better, it’s just as easy as the blue box too! Just boil some pasta, and throw some ingredients in a pot while you wait, whisk, and BOOM. Best (and healthiest!) mac and cheese you’ve ever tasted.
P.S. Dear Spell-check, “mac” is a real word, thankyouverymuch.
P.P.S. I don’t need no stinkin’ spacebar.
