Cheese sauce is one of those foods that never fails to satisfy. Thick, gooey, and of course, cheesy, this keto cheese sauce can be whipped up very easily. Serve it on vegetables, with your favorite keto nachos, or even just on its own as a dip. No matter how you enjoy this cheese sauce, we know you’ll be going back for more.
Here are a few tips to make sure that this is the best keto dip you have ever tried. First, make sure you use unsweetened almond milk. Not only does sweetened almond milk add unwanted carbohydrates (this is a keto recipe after all), but it will completely throw off the flavor of the sauce by adding sweetness.
Next, make sure you shred your cheddar cheese yourself. Not only does freshly grated cheese result in a better flavor, but it also allows you to avoid all the starchy additives that can be found in pre-shredded cheese.
If you manage to refrain from eating all the sauce in one go, it also makes great leftovers. Simply add a tablespoon of heavy cream when reheating to keep the sauce at the right consistency, and you are good to go!
This keto cheese sauce recipe couldn’t be easier to make. Simply throw everything in the pot, stir until it melts down, and serve! The sauce is best served piping hot to make sure the cheese stays melted. We love to eat ours with bell peppers, broccoli, or our favorite low-carb chips!
