13 Store-Bought Vegan Mac and Cheese Brands

Add these delicious plant-based macs to your shopping list ASAP!

Sure, we love a homemade mac moment, but there’s something so nostalgic about whipping up a boxed mac from the pantry or heating up a cheesy pasta meal from the freezer. Whether you like to mix in frozen peas, pair with steamed broccoli and vegan chicken nuggets, or dowse in hot sauce, you need a tasty plant-based mac to lay the foundation. For the right creamy pasta base, check out these 13 store-bought vegan mac and cheese brands.

Howl

Chef-derived vegan mac and cheese, coming right up! These deluxe, creamy cashew-based cheese sauces are such a plant-based foodie vibe. Get in on the tasty eats and find Howl vegan mac and cheese in sharp cheddar style, spicy chipotle, and roasted garlic & herb varieties—there’s a little something for just about everyone!

Chickapea

Specializing in chickpea pasta, Chickapea didn’t hold back on the dairy-free mac and cheese. The Chickapea Vegan Mac comes with a creamy pumpkin and sweet potato sauce—we love a plant-forward cheese mixture!

We’re obsessed with Field Roast Chao Slices, and our love for the vegan mac and cheese burns just as bright. Find both Creamy Mac ‘n Chao and Chili Mac ‘n Chao entrees in the freezer section. We like to stash a few in our home and work freezers for when life calls for a cheesy comfort meal ready in minutes.

Banza

It’s the chickpea pasta we love in a creamy, plant-based cheese sauce. The Banza Plant-Based Mac features a dairy-free cheddar cheese powder ready to be mixed with non-dairy milk and vegan butter—don’t mind if we do. The nutrient-dense mac and cheese contains over 12g of plant-based protein, making it a satisfying choice. Word on the street is that Banza recently launched a Plant-Based White Cheddar Mac exclusively at Whole Foods Market and online platforms.

We love whipping up a box and mixing in steamed veggies for an extra serving of plant-based goodness.
