Clean Mac & Cheese

Mac n Cheese


So, my mom used to throw together MAC and CHEESE for us all the time.  She never bought the boxed mix for us and I used to get so mad.  But now, I totally understand why.  That powdered cheese, is not really cheese.  It’s so artificial and synthetic, it’s almost disgusting to even think about!

So here is my version of a TOTALLY CLEAN AND KID-approved Mac & Cheese!!!  And so simple it’s almost embarrassing!

Here’s the ingredients:

2 cups of uncooked BROWN RICE pasta (penne is preferred)

1 cup of shredded cheese (cheddar or Mexican for a little flair)

1/2 cup of Organic 2% Milk

1 pouch of BUTTERNUT SQUASH (or you can make your own puree or buy babyfood)

1 tbsp of coconut spread (or butter if you can’t find the coconut spread)

Salt and Pepper to taste!
1.  Cook the pasta as noted on the box.

2.  Then just mix it all together!  It’s really that simple.

Watch your kids, and your husband GOBBLE this right up!  And don’t tell them about the sneaky VEGETABLE!




Look at the cheesy goodness!  My mouth is watering.  So glad I have leftovers for lunch!

CONTAINER COUNT –  1 yellow, 1/2 green, and 1 blue
