Alfredo Sauce

I found several recipes for homemade Alfredo sauce online but all of them are high in fat and calories. Most call for cream, so I am wondering what I can substitute for the cream in order to make the sauce healthier without compromising the creamy texture that Alfredo sauce is known for. Anyone?

I have had some success at using low-fat milk, reducing the amount of butter, and using some Wondra (superfine flour) to thicken it. You may need to add extra garlic for flavor.

Yup, same here. I've used low-fat milk, still using the butter, some olive oil, and some flour to thicken it. I love alfredo sauce over my pasta.

Very interesting. I thought my alfredo days were long gone when I started to eat healthier. I'm going to try to make it with low-fat milk and flour. Does it still have the same flavor?
