Easy Vegan Chipotle Aioli! This vegan chipotle sauce is spicy, smoky, creamy, tangy, and absolutely delicious. It’s so easy and requires just 6 ingredients and 5 minutes to make.


  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk or unsweetened soy milk (may use water if needed)
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce + 1 Tbsp of the adobo sauce
  • Salt to taste



  1. Soak cashews in hot water for 15 minutes if not using a high-speed blender like a Vitamix.
  2. Once the cashews are ready, drain and add them to the blender along with all ingredients. Blend on high until smooth and creamy. If it’s too thick you can add a little more almond milk or water until you get the consistency you desire.
  3. Serve right away or store in an airtight container. Leftover sauce can be store in the refrigerator for up to a week.


Prep time does not include soaking for cashews.

Try sprinkling a little smoked paprika on top to add an extra layer of flavor.
