3 Ingredient, Low-Carb, Blender Alfredo Sauce
I’ve been making my 3 ingredient, Blender Alfredo Sauce since I was in college and first started cooking. Initially I tried to make a classic alfredo sauce on the stove top which required constant supervision and lots of [expensive] ingredients. None of those aspects of alfredo sauce were appealing, even though it tasted great. Around that same time, I began dabbling in eating low-carb and let’s just be honest… alfredo is like gravy when you’re eating low carb! I started experimenting with easier sauces on the stove top, but it still took lots of stirring and baby sitting to be sure it melted, without burning. Then I got an amazing blender that goes so fast that the blades actually HEAT up sauces and soups while it’s blending. And almost immediately I started making my alfredo in my blender. My 3 ingredient, low-carb, Blender Alfredo Sauce is stupid-simple. I don’t think it’s possible to mess it up. In fact I don’t even measure the ingredients (except to write this recipe) so don’t feel pressure to meticulously measure your ingredients either. And just because it’s quick & easy, you won’t be sacrificing any flavor. This alfredo sauce is simply outstanding, you will LOVE it. Of course I recommend that you use the highest quality dairy you can, preferably using cultured cream cheese made from organic pasture raised cows 🙂 And even if you don’t have a fancy blender that will heat your sauce, just blend everything together then heat it in a pot on the stove. We love this alfredo sauce served over spaghetti squash and topped with a few of my Artichoke, Chicken and Broccoli Meatballs (recipe coming soon). Although this is an amazing Low-Carb meal, we aren’t low carb every meal or every day… though we always do avoid heavy starch meals and try to cycle our eating pattern through out the week. What’s your favorite way to enjoy alfredo sauce??
- 1 cup Cream Cheese
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons Ghee or butter, softened
- 1 clove Garlic
- Combine all ingredients in your blender, and process on high until completely smooth. (if you love garlic add it, if you don't feel free to leave it out)
- If you have a high powered blender such as a Blendtec or Vitamix, refer to the manufactuer's directions for using it to heat a sauce/soup or transfer to a small pot and heat over low just before serving. You can add a little water to thin it out, if it's too thick after heating.
