This is THE recipe!  You can fix your family a very quick, simple and deliciously healthy Alfredo sauce. As a bonus it is also Low Carb, and lower in fat than other Alfredo sauces.  All you do is blend, heat and eat.

Easy Blender Alfredo Sauce

We eat a lot of Alfredo sauce, and I’ve been so disappointed with other recipes not only involving a bunch of ingredients, but being very oily. With this easy four ingredient Alfredo sauce, if you have any leftovers, they will be just as yummy upon reheating. It is quick and so good, without the grease of other Alfredo recipes.

4 ingredients

RECIPE:

Makes about two cups:

1  8oz package regular cream cheese (You can use light, but I’m not sure how it would turn out with  “fat free”)
3/4 cup chicken broth ( I use 1 tsp “better than bullion” chicken paste mixed with 3/4 cup water)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese (YES, the kind in the green shaker bottle is fine)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder or 2 garlic cloves (not the entire bulb)

 

Place all ingredients in magic bullet or other blender.  Blend on high for about 30 seconds.

Place in sauce pan on medium heat until mixture is heated through. In this case, I browned chicken and then heated the sauce with it.

 

Chicken Alfredo Sauce
Serve plain, as a sauce for Pasta Primavera  or over cooked chicken.

Alfredo Sauce - no label

You can serve it on your favorite pasta.  We serve it with Low Carb pasta from Dreamfields. Here is an expose on that product. If you eat it, try checking you blood sugar an hour after to see how it affects your body.  Some find it does not raise their blood sugar and some may find that it reacts similarly to regular pasta.  Remember, cook it only to the al dente stage (firm to the teeth) and avoid leaving it in tomato based sauces.

 

 

 

I discovered this basic recipe to make Alfredo Sauce from an old Kraft food magazine, and adapted it with the blender for use in any recipe requiring Alfredo sauce.

    Looks great! I never would have thought to use cream cheese! I have one I’ve made a few times, but it’s SO high in calories. It’s all heavy cream and butter. 🙂 But SO yummy. NOT something for every week, that’s for sure 🙂

    As the only vegan in a home full of omnivores, I am always on the lookout for quick and easy recipes to make dinner time easier. My family will love this sauce, and I will love that it only takes a few minutes to make!

    This is awesome. I’m all for easy. I’m not a big fan of cooking anymore but being a caregiver to my parents I have to cook and I am always looking for quick and easy. Thank you.

      Thank you for stopping by – I love my Magic Bullet – I wore my first one out after 14 years of almost continuous use. We use it almost daily. This is so easy to make with it. You could even heat it, right in the cup, in the microwave if you wanted to.

    Alfredo on pasta is my son’s FAVORITE food of all time. I’ll have to give this version a go and see if he likes it, it’s much simpler than my regular recipe.

    I will have to try your recipe 🙂
    But I’ll replace the broth to a veggie one (we don’t eat chicken/meat with dairy)
