Healthy Fettuccine Alfredo Sauce

Quick finish this sentence I loooove fettuccine _____!
The sauce is so good and creamy and just delicious right?

Unfortunately, it's also not too healthy and very fattening especially when it's from a jar, which is where most of us get our Alfredo sauce from.

However, the other day I was on Instagram and saw someone post a healthier version of an Alfredo sauce made out of avocado.

Let me be the first to tell you I used to HATE avocado as a child but now I love them! There are super healthy and versatile as this recipe proves.

To make healthy homemade avocado sauce you'll need:


  • An avocado
  • Plain Greek yogurt
  • Plain soy/ almond milk ( or regular milk)
  • A lemon/ lemon juice
  • One tooth of minced or crushed garlic
  • Salt
  • pepper
  • Olive oil
  • A blender

Place the peeled and pit free avocado in the blender, add garlic SLOWLY, quarter cup of plain Greek yogurt, table spoon of olive oil and blend until smooth. Add in milk to make consistency smoother.

You will have to scrap the sides and bottom to make sure all of the ingredients and equally blended.

Add salt and pepper to your liking and enjoy!

*garlic is a great healthy spice but a very strong one too. Make sure to add it at your liking. I love garlic and the first time I made the sauce it was way too garlicky*

Turn your avocado "Alfredo" sauce into a dressing by adding vinegar to it and enjoy it on a salad. You can also use it as a dressing for a sandwich.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

  1. HISTORY OF ALFREDO DI LELIO CREATOR IN 1908 OF “FETTUCCINE ALL’ALFREDO”, NOW SERVED BY THE GRANDCHILDREN, ALFREDO E ISA DI LELIO, AT THE RESTAURANT “IL VERO ALFREDO” IN ROME, PIAZZA AUGUSTO IMPERATORE 30

    With reference of your article we have the pleasure to tell you the history of our grandfather Alfredo Di Lelio, who is the creator of “fettuccine all’Alfredo” in 1908 in restaurant run by his mother Angelina in Rome, Piazza Rosa (Piazza disappeared in 1910 following the construction of the Galleria Colonna / Sordi).
    Alfredo di Lelio opened the restaurant “Alfredo” in 1914 in a street in central Rome, after leaving the restaurant of his mother Angelina. In this local spread the fame, first to Rome and then in the world, of “fettuccine all’Alfredo”.
    In 1943, during the war, Di Lelio sold the restaurant to others outside his family.
    In 1950 Alfredo Di Lelio decided to reopen with his son Armando his restaurant in Piazza Augusto Imperatore n.30 "Il Vero Alfredo" (“Alfredo di Roma”), which is now managed by his nephews Alfredo and Ines, with the famous “gold cutlery”” (fork and spoon gold) donated in 1927 by two well-known American actors Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks (in gratitude for the hospitality).
    See also the site of “Il Vero Alfredo” http://www.alfredo-roma.it/.
    We must clarify that other restaurants "Alfredo" in Rome do not belong to the family tradition of "Il Vero Alfredo" in Rome.
    We inform that the restaurant “Il Vero Alfredo” is in the registry of “Historic Shops of Excellence” of the City of Rome Capitale.
    Best regards Alfredo e Ines Di Lelio
