Health benefits of bone broth
The bone broth in the base of this healthy Alfredo Sauce is so good for you. You can make it from scratch at home in your slow cooker or Instant Pot or you can buy all natural bone broth by the carton.
Bone broth is nourishing for your gut, provided necessary nutrients for healthy joints, helps your skin and hair grow strong and healthy, boosts your immune system, and even gives your metabolism an extra push.
It’s a fabulous ingredient to include in your cooking whenever possible for both its rich flavor and many health benefits.
Health benefits of garlic
Garlic is a low calorie, high benefit food that has so many health benefits you could almost call it a medicine.
Studies have shown daily garlic consumption to help protect against getting sick, to help lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and to improve your overall health.
This recipe uses fresh garlic for the tantalizing flavor it adds to your healthy homemade Alfredo, but those health benefits sure are an awesome bonus, aren’t they?
How Do You Make Healthy Low Carb Alfredo Sauce?
The first step is to melt your butter and sauté freshly minced garlic cloves in it. This recipe uses five garlic cloves because, well, you can never have too much garlic!
Once your garlic is fragrant, add in your heavy cream and bone broth. Stir this very well to fully blend the butter, garlic, heavy cream, and bone broth together.
Once it’s all stirred together thoroughly, add in the parmesan. Then reduce your heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
What do you use as a low carb Alfredo Sauce thickener?
Traditional Alfredo sauce uses flour or some other thickening agent to get that thick and creamy consistency Alfredo is so well known for.
However, this recipe allows the broth and cream to reduce in a gentle simmer and as that happens, the creamy garlic cheese sauce thickens naturally.
That’s what allows this Alfredo Sauce to stay low carb. By using heavy cream that thickens as it reduces, you eliminate any starches that would be traditionally needed.

Making Creamy Garlic Parmesan Alfredo Sauce At Home
If you happen to have some leftovers or just prefer to cook in large batches when you make your low carb Alfredo Sauce, what is the best way to keep it tasting delicious? No worries, even that is easy!
Storing Low Carb Alfredo
Simply let your sauce cool. Once it’s room temperature, pour the low carb Alfredo into an airtight container for keeping in the refrigerator.
That’s it! Use it within several days so it doesn’t go bad. With so many amazing low carb Alfredo Recipes to choose from, that shouldn’t be too hard to do!
How To Reheat Low Carb Alfredo
Pull your low carb Alfredo Sauce out of the fridge and heat it in either the microwave or in a pan on the stove. However, the best result will be on the stovetop. When you reheat it, whisk it all together and cook it slowly over low heat. Turning the heat up too high can cause the sauce to scorch and also separate.
So now the only thing you have to decide is which Alfredo Sauce meal you’re going to try first!
