What's the best way of boosting your diet with healthy fats? Apart from my favourite Hollandaise sauce, I've been making this cheese sauce for several years, although I used to eat it with all sorts of high-carb foods like pasta. These days I eat it with real food - vegetables, meat, fish and even fried eggs. With 90% of energy from fat, this recipe is perfect for the Fat Fast!

Ingredients (makes about 1 cup/ 4 servings)

  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream (60 ml / 2 fl oz)
  • 2 tbsp butter, preferably grass-fed (28 g / 1 oz)
  • ¼ cup cream cheese or soft goat cheese (60 g / 2.1 oz)
  • ½ cup grated cheddar or hard goat cheese (60 g / 2.1 oz)
  • pinch salt if needed (I like pink Himalayan)
  • 1-2 tbsp water or more cream if you need to thin it down
Optional seasonings (use some or combine):

When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).


  1. Place the cream and butter into a small sauce pan and gently heat up. Grate the cheddar cheese and keep aside. (photos shown are for 8 servings - double the recipe)

  4. Add grated cheddar cheese and... Keto Cheese Sauce
  5. ... mix until smooth and creamy. If you prefer a thicker sauce, cook for 3-5 more minutes while stirring. If too thick, add a splash of water or cream. Keto Cheese Sauce
  6. Serve over steamed vegetables, fish and meat! If you can't use the whole recipe, only make one serving. The sauce should be eaten immediately or kept at room temperature before serving. Once refrigerated and reheated, the butter separates and the cheese clumps which you want to avoid. Keto Cheese Sauce

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
