Alfredo Sauce:

  • 1 cup Daiya mozzarella shreds
  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut milk (from a carton, not canned)
  • 2 Tablespoons Gigi’s Everyday GF Flour Blend (gum-free) OR similar gum-free blend like King Arthur GF Multipurpose Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon dairy-free butter substitute
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of pepper

For serving:

  • ½ pound shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons Earth Balance buttery spread
  • Salt and pepper
  • Gluten-free pasta



  1. Prepare gluten-free pasta according to package directions.
  2. Prepare the sauce by placing all sauce ingredients in a saucepan over medium-low heat and whisk to blend in the flour. Warm until “cheese” melts and continue to stir.
  3. Allow the mixture to come to a low boil, and cook, stirring, 1 to 2 minutes, until the mixture begins to thicken. Turn off heat. Mixture will thicken slightly as it cools.
  4. Cook shrimp in a skillet over medium-high heat in 2 tablespoons melted Earth Balance for 3-4 minutes until shrimp are pink. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Do not overcook.
  5. To serve, plate pasta, top with sauce and place shrimp on top. Garnish with fresh dill and a lemon wedge if desired.
