Basil Pesto

This recipe is oil free and dairy free! YAY. Vegan pesto is very difficult to find in a grocery store so I came up with this delicious recipe so that we can all still enjoy pesto without having to eat dairy or excess oil.

What could I replace the avocado with? My daughter and I are allergic but want to try the recipe. TIA 🙂

You could just add a little more cashews in place of the avo and it should still be ok

Jenn T October 19, 2020 - 6:17 pm

If I keep the avocado, can I use white beans instead of cashews?
