I haven't, but I will surely be watching for any suggestions. I love Alfredo sauce, too!

I can't find a recipe for Almond Milk Alfredo, but I found this vegan recipe made with silken tofu.

1 package (12 oz.) extra firm silken tofu
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 cup ground flaxseed (flaxseed meal)
1/2 – 1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
olive oil and sea salt to taste

Directions:
Cook pasta according to package directions.
While pasta is cooking, combine all sauce ingredients together in a food processor. Blend until smooth.
When pasta is finished cooking, drain, rinse and return to pot. Toss in a light amount of olive oil to evenly coat the noodles. Salt lightly if desired.
Combine the sauce with the pasta until the desired pasta/sauce ratio is reached. This recipe makes enough to generously coat 14 oz. box or bag of dried pasta.

used almond milk recently to make a mac & cheese recipe and it was great. Of course with an Alfredo sauce it may not be quite as thick as creme. Good luck!

I've never had any issues using almond or coconut milk in replacement of dairy milks. If something doesn't thicken up use a bit of cornstarch.
