  • 2 1/2 cups macaroni noodles, uncooked (Use gluten free if needed)
  • 1 15oz can butter beans, drained
  • 2 cups dairy free milk (we like oat for this)

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 cup vegan parmesan cheese (we use Violife for this recipe)
  • 2 cups vegan shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 oz vegan cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup Buffalo sauce, more to taste


  • Bring a salted pot of water to a boil.
  • Cook macaroni noodles according to the package. Drain noodles once done and set aside.
  • While noodles cook, add all remaining ingredients to a high powdered blender.
