In this short guide, I’ve put together a list of the 5 best vegan Alfredo sauce brands that you can find in-stores or online. If you don’t have the time or the energy to make it at home, these non-dairy Alfredo sauces might be just what you’re looking for.
But first, let’s answer this common question…
Is Alfredo sauce vegan? The answer is, usually not. Alfredo sauce typically is filled with dairy in the form of cream, making it unsuitable for a vegan lifestyle.
But not to worry! The brands we found make great substitutes…
Don’t have time to read? Here’s a quick summary of the products we recommend.
|Victoria Vegan Alfredo||B|
|Daiya Deluxe Cheeze Sauce Alfredo Style||A|
Victoria Vegan Alfredo
I wanted to start with the most common brand.
This one you can find in Whole Foods and even some Walmart’s.
There are mixed reviews on this one. Most say they don’t like the taste and would prefer to make their own, but convenience wins the race because it’s easy to find.
The price point is about average for a vegan sauce, even though it looks more expensive than what you would see from a brand like Bertolli.
This sauce comes in a variety of flavors as well, so even if you don’t like the original, you may be able to find one you do.
Cashew cream (water, cashews), fresh garlic, salt, black pepper, non-dairy lactic acid, rosemary, raw sugar, natural cocoa butter flavor, corn starch, gum acacia, xanthan gum. Contains: tree nuts
Daiya Deluxe Cheeze Sauce Alfredo Style
This is another one that may be found in Whole Foods, it really depends on the store.
But as far availability it isn’t too hard to find, and it can be bought online. This is a “cheese” sauce, so it has somewhat of an alfredo flavor but still can be a little too cheesy.
It is good, very thick if you prefer that style of sauce, and is a little more affordable than Victoria Vegan.
Daiya makes a variety of cheese-like sauces but this is their only alfredo flavor.
Filtered Water, Tapioca Starch, Non-GMO Expeller Pressed: Canola and/or Safflower Oil, Coconut Oil, Vegan Natural Flavors, Sea Salt, Pea Protein Isolate, Tricalcium Phosphate, Cane Sugar, Lactic Acid (Vegan), Xanthan Gum, Titanium Dioxide (A Natural Mineral), Yeast Extract, Spices, Onion, Garlic.
Parmela Creamery Nutcheese Alfredo
Now this one is exceptional. I personally like it a lot and I can’t find one bad review on this online.
It is sold in some stores, but most people just buy it online.
It has incredible flavor, nearly tastes like the real thing. It’s not nearly as expensive as Victoria Vegan, and though it’s not as convenient to find in a pinch, you can also just buy extra and keep it on hand.

In addition to its amazing taste, it boasts being completely plant-based, dairy, GMO, gluten, soy, and cholesterol-free.
It comes in three flavors: Classic, Rose, and Mushroom.
Cashew cream (water, cashews), Cashew nut cheese (cashews, water, sea salt, lactic acid, cultures), White wine, Olive oil, Sea salt, Potato starch, Cane sugar, Nutritional yeast, Garlic, Black pepper, Locust bean gum, Organic natural flavor, Basil, thyme, Oregano, Yeast extract, Cultures.
Nona Vegan Alfredo Sauce
Ok, this sauce is supposed to be cream of the crop when it comes to vegan alfredo.
It’s a Toronto-based company, so it’s mainly only sold in Canada, but a few Whole Food markets in America stock it. And When I say few, you could probably count them on two hands.
If you live in a big city you might get lucky and catch a few of these babies, and if you do, STOCK UP.
From what the Canadians say this is a thick and creamy sauce, that might very well be the best thing you’ve ever tasted.
These can also apparently be used as dips. They have alfredo, cheesy, and carbonara-style sauces.
The ingredients are as follows:
Water, Cashews, Sunflower seed oil, Arrowroot powder, Basil, Onion powder, Garlic powder, Oregano, Sea salt, Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), Xanthan gum
Le Grand Alfredo Sauce
This one is half good and half bad.
There are some seriously mixed reviews on this one.
With Le Grand you either love it or you have it, there seems to be no in-between.
Some say the consistency is perfect others say it’s too watery. It’s sold in Whole Foods and Fresh Market, so this might have to be one you pick up and try for yourself.
What’s great about is that there are loads of whole foods in the ingredients including beans, kale, and mushrooms.
Water, coconut milk (coconut extract, water, guar gum), organic navy beans and/or organic lima beans, kale, dried shiitake mushrooms, fresh garlic, sea salt, fine herbs, spices.
If you’re just going vegan, or even if you’ve been at this a while, then you know finding vegan alfredo sauce in the stores can be difficult. Most resort to just making it themselves, which is a great alternative, but also time-consuming. Being vegan shouldn’t mean that you can’t have foods you want because of finding what you need in the store, or because you can’t make it yourself.
