Oh how I love this classic summer cookout recipe! It may be the middle of winter as I write this, but the summer vibes are calling my name with this vegan coleslaw recipe! I wanted to create this healthy coleslaw because too often I see vegan coleslaw recipes that are loaded with unhealthy dressing ingredients. I focused on creating this dairy-free coleslaw dressing recipe using the cleanest, most natural ingredients I could while also making it nut-free!

How to make this dairy-free coleslaw dressing:

Not only is this entire recipe easy, but they dairy-free coleslaw dressing is super simple and just requires one step, blending! You can make this dressing using any blender, but if you are thinking of investing in a high speed blender like a Vitamix, I really recommend it. I am relatively new to the Vitamix game, and it has completely changed the quality of my dressings and sauces. They come out so smooth now. Honestly, I use my Vitamix everyday, she might be my favorite kitchen gadget. I only bring up the Vitamix for this recipe, because I really think it helps the aquafaba fluff up better than other blenders. This is because of the speed the Vitamix can reach. With that said, if you don’t have money to invest in a Vitamix and Nutribullet will totally do the trick!

Dairy-free dressing:

Since I am vegan (obviously, lol hints the name of the blog), every single one of my dressing recipes is vegan! Over the years I have worked on plenty of vegan salad dressings just like this one that are delicious and whole foods plant based! Some of my all time favorite vegan salads and dressings include:

And more!

What makes this Vegan Coleslaw healthy:

There are thousands and thousands of vegan coleslaw recipes online. I am not here to complete with those recipes. Because let’s face it: vegan mayo is a thing and tastes exactly like regular mayo so coleslaw is a very easy dish to veganize. However if you know me, then you know that that is not my goal.

I did not create The All Natural Vegan to just create vegan recipes (hints the word all natural). I wanted to make this vegan coleslaw healthy by using clean simple ingredients. And I did exactly that. This healthy vegan coleslaw recipe features whole foods plant based ingredients to create a simply delicious vegan coleslaw recipe. This recipe is free of: oil, mayo, refined sugars, gluten, nuts, and of course all animal products!
