  • 24 oz (3 cups) full fat cottage cheese

  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or milk of choice), plus more, as needed, to thin


  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until very smooth.

  2. Add to a saucepan and heat over medium heat.

  3. Heat through, but take care not to overheat because it will begin to separate.
  4. Toss with noodles and parsley.

Recipe Notes

This homemade alfredo sauce is serious goodness, and is very versatile, too.  I like to use it on pizza as a sauce, noodles, baked potatoes, with shrimp.  It's just so dang good and always shocks me how easy it is every time I make it.  My kids can't even tell the difference when they try it.

If you're worried about the saturated fat in the full fat dairy, check out this post so you understand why it' not a big deal to enjoy this sauce, as long as it's part of a healthy, well-balanced diet.

I also appreciate how this sauce stores well.  If, for some reason it starts to separate, you can also just re-blend it and you should be good to go!
