Egg Fast Alfredo Sauce – Low Carb Keto Nirvana

Whether you are doing an Egg Fast or simply living your every day, healthy, low carb keto lifestyle, and are looking for a quick and easy, down and dirty recipe for Alfredo sauce, makes no difference! This 2 minute Alfredo Sauce from Fluffy Chix Cook is the low carb bomb! You’ll find yourself looking for ways to use this simple sauce again and again: veggies, over meats, over low carb Psylli Induction Pasta, on Beefy Alfredo Noodles, on eggs. (Yes, eggs!) Use it often, it’s a winner recipe. You’ll find yourself using it weekly.

We’ve known since our old LCF days (a low carb support forum), and Linda Sue days (Linda Sue is a low carb living recipe legend), that the secret to creamy sauces was cream cheese and heavy cream. And we have lived long and prospered on that one trick, alone.

It didn’t take long to switch over to using chicken broth in place of cream, when wanting to cut the calories in a recipe. (Relax, you may be one of the fortunate ones who only have to count carbs, not count calories…this fluffy chix does not share your good fortune. Calories, in addition to carbs, do count.) So we’ve been adding broth to thin out cream cheese for a long time. (It makes a super quick cream of chicken soup base for all kinds of dishes)!

But a big round of applause goes out to Mellissa Sevigny, of I Breathe, I’m Hungry blog. Most of you know my friend’s recipe and photography prowess! Thanks to her inspirations from the Egg Fast dishes (Mellissa and the Fluffys Egg Fast from time-to-time): Fettuccine Alfredo and Egg Fast Frozen Custard, where she made cream out of cream cheese using only cream cheese and water. Incon-theib-able (said with my best “Catheelian” aka Castillian accent)! Mellissa used mascarpone cheese and butter to achieve a drool-worthy Alfredo and used cream cheese, water, egg yolks and flavorings to make a frozen custard (which I’m totally wanting to do now)!

We couldn’t resist. We HAD to know. Could it be done? We threw caution to the wind to see if cream cheese and water really do thin down to anything remotely resembling a classic Alfredo. And it does! It does! It so freaking, does! The reward? A boat load of Alfredo Sauce (about 5 tablespoons) only costs you 2g of carbs and 228 calories. Sweet! And the recipe doubles, triples and quadruples like a little champ.

We love this sauce on low carb keto Psylli Induction Pasta and on Eggs Florentine, or used anywhere a delicious Alfredo Sauce or white sauce would come in handy. We can think of so many applications! (Hello steamed broccoli! My, aren’t you the pretty today?)

This Alfredo is an amazing Egg Fast friendly recipe. You won't believe how delicious Egg Fast Alfredo Sauce tastes. You'll simply be looking high and low for the cream. Now, it's completely possible to enjoy Alfredo in under 2 minutes flat!

Ingredients

Instructions

Notes

  1. I love this sauce! When I saw your recipe I knew I could tweak it and make enchilada suizas. With the psyllium wraps I made Sunday night! Instead of parm cheese I used mount. jack. I sprinkled paprika instead of the nutmeg and all spice. I used just a tad of chopped picked jalapeños also. I smeared 2 wraps with the sauce and then rolled them up with sprinkled Monterrey jack cheese in the middle. I spooned some more sauce on top and sprinkled some jack cheese on top. I nuked until cheese was melted…….yummy!!! I could eat this daily!

    • Have you seen our sour cream enchilada sauce? It’s honestly what I use to make Enchiladas Suizas! 😀 But your tweaks sound divine!!!!! So it’s a 2nd sauce!!!

  2. sounds really creamy and yummy … I make a single serving of ‘alfredo sauce’ using 1/4c almond milk, 2T parmesan, 1T heavy cream, 1tsp minced garlic, 1Tbacon grease or butter a couple shakes of crushed red pepper flakes and sometime add 2c spinach, but it always goes great with meats etc. not a thick maybe as using cream cheese but I still love it, feeling decadent. thanks for sharing I WILL use your recipe too!

    • Thanks for sharing!

  3. Another way to use cream cheese! Thank you Lord. And Fluffys.

  4. Where’s the allspice?
