One of my favorite things growing up as a kid was fettuccine alfredo. But as I grew older, I started to notice that eating it made me feel terrible. I would get extremely bloated and usually have a terrible stomach ache. There was just too much cream and my body couldn’t handle it. So I decided to make a dairy-free version, and that’s how I came up with this Dairy-Free Coconut Fettuccine Alfredo.

Instead of cream, we use coconut milk in this recipe, so it’s still pretty creamy, but it also has a very mild coconut flavor which I think tastes so delicious!

Ingredients for Dairy-Free Coconut Fettuccine Alfredo:

  • Gluten-free Fettuccine of choice – I used Jovial Foods Brown Rice pasta. This brand does have eggs in it, so if vegan be sure to find another one. You could also use a normal non-gluten-free Fettuccine as well if you’re not concerned with gluten.
  • Coconut milk – I use Native Forest Simple Organic Unsweetened
  • Garlic cloves
  • Chopped onion
  • Ghee or other cooking oil
  • Nutritional yeast – I use Sari Foods because it’s non-fortified
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • Thyme
  • Lemon
  • Almond flour
  • Optional: parsley for topping

How to Make Dairy-Free Coconut Fettuccine Alfredo:

First, start by making the pasta according to the package.

In a separate pot while the pasta is cooking, sauté the garlic and onion on low in the ghee for 2 mins (or other healthy cooking oil), then add coconut milk, nutritional yeast, spices, and lemon. Mix together.

Then add almond flour to the coconut milk mixture and mix together. I used a whisk to make sure there were no chunks. Bring it to a simmer.

When pasta is done cooking, pour coconut milk sauce on top, and top with parsley if desired!

I recommend serving immediately once the sauce is done.
