Keto-Friendly Alfredo Sauce Recipe

Keto-Friendly Alfredo Sauce


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Pinch of nutmeg (optional)
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


Prepare the Ingredients:

  1. Grate Cheese:
    • Grate the Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses if not pre-grated.
  2. Mince Garlic:
    • Mince the garlic cloves.

Make the Alfredo Sauce:

  1. Melt Butter:
    • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the unsalted butter.
  2. Sauté Garlic:
    • Add minced garlic to the melted butter and sauté for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Be careful not to let the garlic brown.
  3. Add Heavy Cream:
    • Pour in the heavy cream, stirring continuously to combine with the butter and garlic.
  4. Simmer:
    • Allow the mixture to simmer gently for 2-3 minutes, letting it heat through.
  5. Add Cheese:
    • Gradually add the grated Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, stirring constantly until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.
  6. Season:
    • Season the Alfredo sauce with garlic powder, salt, black pepper, and a pinch of nutmeg if desired. Adjust the seasoning to your taste.
  7. Simmer and Thicken:
    • Let the sauce simmer on low heat for an additional 2-3 minutes to allow it to thicken. Keep stirring to prevent sticking.
  8. Garnish:
    • Garnish the Keto-Friendly Alfredo Sauce with chopped fresh parsley.


  1. Serve Hot:
    • Serve the Alfredo sauce immediately over your favorite low-carb pasta, zoodles (zucchini noodles), or grilled chicken.


  • Cheese Varieties: Feel free to experiment with different cheese combinations based on your preference. Some recipes use cream cheese for added creaminess.
  • Consistency: If the sauce becomes too thick, you can thin it out by adding a splash of heavy cream until you reach the desired consistency.

This Keto-Friendly Alfredo Sauce is a rich and creamy low-carb alternative to traditional Alfredo sauces. Enjoy the indulgent taste without compromising your keto lifestyle!
