How to Make a Low Calorie Delicious Cheese Sauce

So cheese sauces are great. I use them all the time for cheesy bakes, for making veggies more palatable (curse you bell peppers), and just to eat with a spoon. However, these sauces normally require metric tons of butter and flour and guys, that is not necessary. You really only need a few ingredients and this cheese sauce tastes like heaven. Just don’t eat the whole thing while leaning over the pan ok?


  • 1 tbsp flour (I use white whole wheat but white or even whole wheat works)
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (could substitute for regular but….. calories)
  • 2 oz of any cheese you want (I normally do 1 oz lite mozzarella and 1 oz the cheese I want it flavored as because the lite mozzarella is super low cal and bulks it up. Thank you Trader Joes, thank you!)


Throw your flour in a nonstick pan and start hearing it on medium. When it’s heated, pour in your almond milk and mix, then let thicken stirring every once in a while. When it’s thickened, turn off the heat and throw in your cheese and mix till melted.

It’s that easy guys, it’s that easy. Enjoy!
