Guiltless Alfredo Sauce

My husband loves alfredo sauce but it is soooo bad for you! 
I found this recipe at Our Best Bites and now I make it at least twice a month! 
The recipe makes more than we can eat for one meal so I freeze half each time I make it. 
It is easy to thaw (leave it in the fridge all day and then reheat) 
and still tastes good the second time around. 

Guiltless Alfredo Sauce
recipe from Our Best Bites


2 cups low-fat milk 
1/3 cup low-fat cream cheese 
2 tbsp flour 

1 tbsp butter 
3 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup parmesan cheese


Pour milk, cream cheese and flour into blender (I used my Magic Bullet and it worked perfect!). 
Blend until smooth. 

In a medium sauce pan, melt butter then add garlic. Simmer for about a minute. 

Add milk mixture and bring to a simmer (stirring constantly). 

Once simmering, reduce heat and allow to simmer without stirring for about 2 minutes. 

Take off heat and add parmesan cheese. 
Stir until smooth. 

Cover and let sit for about 10 minutes before using. This allows it to get nice and thick! 

Pour over some chicken and noodles or use as a dipping sauce.

  1. Yummy - homemade alfredo is easy to make and it tastes so amazing. Wonderful recipe :)

    If you’d like, I wanted to invite you to share your best recipes over at my new party, Recipe Sharing Monday at Jam Hands. I’m going to be featuring my favorite submissions during the week and I’d love it if you’d join in the fun. :O)

  2. Love this idea. While I really enjoy it, I usually avoid it because of the health reasons. Thanks for the great tip!

  3. Oh, I am so glad I found this. I am coming over from Jam Hands. I have a favorite Alfredo recipe that I just made last night, but it has a whole stick of butter in it. Printing this one out to use next time I want to make Alfredo Sauce. Thanks for posting this.

  4. I'm so glad to see that you linked up this week! Thank you so much for sharing this at Recipe Sharing Monday. I hope to see you back next week!
