Who doesn’t love creamy, cheesy Alfredo sauce?
Anyone watching their weight, that’s who!
My go to has always been a quick sauce with butter, cream cheese, milk and Parmesan, then I decided to make a”skinny” version using Greek yogurt. The Greek yogurt replaces the cream cheese, and using a low fat milk helps reduce calories even more but you don’t notice the difference!
It is super delicious! All the boys loved it and my Mom happened to be over while I was cooking so she taste tested too and gave it a thumbs up. I served it over some pasta with broccoli and leftover grilled chicken, but anything you use Alfredo on, this would cover it!
This Greek yogurt Alfredo sauce is super creamy and really easy to make! It’s perfect for a weeknight dinner or to dress up for a special occasion!
A couple of things before we get to the recipe.
First, this recipe uses chicken broth, you can easily swap that out for vegetable broth to make this vegetarian, it tastes just as good! I often swap for my homemade vegetable bullion and it adds a great flavor.
Second, you can make this ahead of time if you are preparing your meals for the week. It keeps in an airtight container in the fridge. It does get pretty thick once it’s chilled but when you heat it up it will go back to the right consistency. You may need to add a splash of milk to get it nice and creamy again.
I’ve been asked if you can use whole milk or half & half for this recipe. You sure can, but that really defeats the purpose of healthy-ing up this Alfredo sauce… it does make it super creamy though.
This is delicious over any pasta, or a great sauce to add to veggies, chicken, even fish. We really haven’t found anything that we don’t like it on!!
