Healthy Alfredo Sauce

I never “really” liked alfredo sauce because it doesn’t like me!

But, for some insane reason, I would still eat it.

Alfredo sauce is so creamy good that it’s hard not to eat it even though we know it’s the worst pasta sauce EVER!

With 1,000 calories per cup, I don’t think alfredo sauce likes any of us.

And, alfredo sauce REALLY doesn’t like you if you’re dairy or lactose intolerant like me and my family.

That’s why every time I couldn’t resist but indulge in alfredo sauce, I would totally regret it.

The sharp stomach pains would set in, bloating and even gas…  It was painful, embarrassing and instantly added weight to my thighs.

It was all because I was so focused on the instant gratification of how good food tasted.

I kept convincing myself that “it wasn’t that bad” and I continued to eat stomach bloating alfredo sauce.

Good thing this was years ago and I know better and actually “do better” now.

FINALLY!  Alfredo Sauce that’s Dairy Free and even Gluten Free

This Alfredo sauce is the healthiest EVER because it’s creamy and fat burning at the same time.  This recipe is even okay for those on an autoimmune protocol.  🙂  (By the way, if you want to learn more about autoimmune conditions then you absolutely don’t want to miss the Betrayal movie that will answer every single one of your autoimmune questions!)

I NEVER thought that was possible!

IT IS!!! I came up with THE BEST Dairy-Free Alfredo sauce that’s fat burning to help flatten your tummy instead of bloat it!

My team and I came up with THE BEST Dairy-Free Alfredo sauce that’s fat burning to help flatten your tummy instead of bloat it!

You just have to see it here to believe it:

Not only was this DELICIOUS but this was THE FIRST TIME, I enjoyed every bite of my alfredo pasta plate, slept like a baby and still fit into my skinny jeans in the morning.

I found these small round spaghetti squash at Mothers Market that made perfect edible bowls, a NO carb pasta and a 100% veggie pasta.

I had to take this picture to show you the golden buttery color before I mixed in the coconut milk.

This buttery goodness is dairy free ghee.

Arrowroot flour is the secret ingredient that keeps this sauce gluten free and thick and creamy.

Today, arrowroot is used most often as a thickener in food. It serves as a gluten-free, healthier alternative to cornstarch, as it’s both GMO-free and vegan. Also beneficial for sensitive digestive systems, arrowroot is one of the easiest starches for the body to digest. –   Boost Immunity & Soothe Digestion with Arrowroot

 

Slowly stir in the arrowroot flour so that it doesn’t clump up.

Pack in more broccoli if you want too.

The alfredo sauce was so creamy that I added 5 almost 6 cups of broccoli to this dish.

To save time, I did some meal prep and steamed a ton of broccoli the night before.

I didn’t think that a healthy alfredo sauce existed!  But, YES it does NOW!!!

Dinner prayer was actually, “Thank God Mom FINALLY made a creamy pasta we can eat!”

One of our community members, Marilyn, suggested just making the sauce to use it for a side dish so that the kids (and even adults) can dip their steamed veggies in it!
