Hot, Steamy and Ultra Creamy Alfredo Sauce in 6 Minutes!!
(...and no standing at the stove, stirring and stirring...) Once it's finished you can add some cheddar cheese to transform the alfredo sauce to a cheese sauce! Pour over cooked elbow macaroni for mac and cheese! (I baked mine for about 20 minutes at 350 F to get all nice and bubbly.)
This recipe utilizes a high speed/high performance blender. I used the KitchenAid High Performance Blender (3 Peak HP). As long as your blender is the type that can use its high speed/friction to make hot soups, you should be able to make these sauces.

Ingredients for Alfredo Sauce:
1 tablespoon butter
½ teaspoon garlic, minced
1 cup whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
2 ounces cream cheese (I used Philadelphia brand)
1 tablespoon flour or gluten free flour blend (I used King Arthur Flour GF Blend)https://sites.google.com/site/epicuricloudrecipes2/steamy-blender-alfredo-and-cheese-sauce-recipes
3-ounces Parmesan cheese cut into 1” chunks
¾ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
To Make Cheese Sauce:
6 ounces mild cheddar cheese, cut into 1” chunks
In small skillet sauté garlic in butter for 30-seconds – 1 minute or until softened, then add to blender.
Add milk, cream, cream cheese, flour, Parmesan, salt and pepper.
Turn blender on high/MAX. In about 30 seconds the mixture may thicken and need to be tamped down. Blend on MAX speed until it automatically shuts off – 6 min. (This is a feature of the KitchenAid High Speed Blender. For other blenders, turn off after 6-minutes.)
The sauce will thicken even more as it rests.
To make cheese sauce, add cheddar cheese after the blender automatically shuts off /when alfredo sauce is finished and blend on MAX for about 1 minute or until all cheese is combined.
