Slimming World Cheese Sauce

You probably want to know what the story is behind this Slimming World Cheese Sauce. Or my own history with Slimming World.

Firstly, I joined Slimming World originally in 1994 as a fat teen that ate too much cheese and chocolate and never exercised.

The weight soon fell off me and I went to target. I then returned to Slimming World after the birth of my first child and again the weight fell off.

But that was long before you could look online for Slimming World recipes and the SW recipes of then, are not as good as they are today.

As I have become a kitchen gadgets food blogger and become more and more obsessed with my kitchen gadgets, the more new healthy recipes I have learnt.

Slimming World cheese sauce is a key example of that. A recipe I have altered over the years until I found my perfect recipe and this is it.

I am also a cheese sauce addict and love the idea that I can bring you a cheese sauce that can be either low syn or syn free, that you can also make at home and help you on your Slimming World Journey.

Best Slimming World Cheese Sauce

Well the chef hubby said it was the best Slimming World cheese sauce he had ever tried, when I poured this cheese sauce over his cauliflower.

Yet this cheese sauce is free of:

  • Butter
  • Flour

You don’t need to make a roux. You can dump the ingredients into a soup maker, or a pressure cooker and it comes together so fast.

It also works as a replacement for a LOT of your favourite Slimming World sauces such as:

  • Slimming World White Sauce – Just want a plain white sauce you can use for quick dinners? Then make our cheese sauce without cheese and you have a yummy creamy basic sauce recipe.
  • Slimming World Parsley Sauce – Are you making a Slimming World fish pie? Then make our cheese sauce, don’t add cheese and add garlic and parsley instead.
  • Slimming World Cheese Sauce For Lasagne – This syn free cheese sauce is ideal for lasagne. Make a batch of it and load it onto your lasagne. Then any leftover can go towards a batch of cheese sauce for the freezer.
  • Slimming World Cheese Sauce For Pasta – The same rule can apply to any pasta dish. Such as making a SW macaroni cheese. Just mix cooked pasta with this delicious cheese sauce and you have a SW pasta bake.
  • Slimming World Cheese Sauce For Steak – You can also use this sauce as a basis of a cheese sauce for steak. But I would recommend adding in some extra seasonings to make it taste more like a steak sauce. Such as some mushrooms and some peppercorns.

You could also use this to make nacho cheese sauce, white wine sauce, or whatever you are cooking. Its kind of a sauce that works well with a lot of different recipes.

Slimming World Cheese Sauce With Butternut Squash

Yes you heard it right! The secret ingredient is that this Slimming World cheese sauce is made with butternut squash.

That sounds crazy doesn’t it? Especially when most Slimming World cheese sauce recipes use quark. Well I have to say that I find quark really boring and it doesn’t get me excited over my Slimming World meals.

But instead of a cheese sauce made just with quark you swap it for butternut squash instead. Or if you don’t like butternut squash you can use either pumpkin, carrots or cauliflower. As any of those vegetables do the trick.

What they create is a creamy hidden vegetable sauce and then you simply add cheese to it.

How Do I Make Slimming World Cheese Sauce?

In simple terms a Slimming World cheese sauce is the combination of:

  • Creamy cooked blended vegetables
  • Creamy add ins
  • Grated cheese that melts

Those are the basic three things that make a cheese sauce. Or even better, make our Slimming World butternut squash soup and then reserve some leftovers for a base for a cheese sauce.

  • For my creamy vegetables – first choice is always butternut squash as it does the best job. But carrots is a close second. Or sometimes I use some butternut squash and some carrots.
  • Then for the creamy add ins – you have a few syn free foods to choose from. You could make your Slimming World cheese sauce with quark, natural yoghurt or another favourite is light Philadelphia.
  • Then for the grated cheese – whatever favourite grated cheese you love will work well. I usually use light mature cheddar. That is because it is lower calorie, you can then add more of it and its stronger on taste, so you don’t need as much.

Low Fat Cheese Sauce

I understand that even though I love Slimming World, not everyone else does. Well you be pleased to know that this cheese sauce suits a whole range of diets.

The best thing about it is that it is flourless and butterless making it ideal for weight loss. It is a low fat cheese sauce and it is a low calorie cheese sauce.

It is also fantastic for low carb diets and WW.

Quantity. Even though the cheese quantity might seem high for SW or WW, note that this is enough cheese sauce to do two big family dinners. So, imagine that you are dividing the cheese allowance between 8 for your serving size. Also note, that if you want more mature cheddar then you can swap the Philadelphia for quark or fromage frais.

Swaps. Mix and match whichever cream you want. You can use quark, fromage frais, natural yoghurt, or light soft cheese. You can also add in a little milk if the sauce is too thick. As well as this you can use whichever cheese you want.

Freezer. Load into freezer containers once cool. Then freeze for up to 3 months. You can also freeze your leftover lasagne that you have made with the sauce.

How do you thin homemade cheese sauce? ›

Once the flour, butter and milk have combined, add 1/2 cup of Gruyere, 1/4 Cup Cheddar, and 1/4 Cup Parmesan.. At this point, the sauce should be fairly thick. If you wish for it to be thicker, bring the cheese sauce to a slight boil and then remove it from the heat. If you want to thin it out a bit, add more milk.

Why add flour to cheese sauce? ›

Starch (such as all-purpose flour, cornstarch, or potato flour) will keep the cheese from curdling. If using all-purpose flour, add it to the mixture before the cheese; it needs to be cooked for a few minutes to remove the starchy taste.

How do you thicken cheese sauce? ›

For a cheese dip or sauce, the addition of cornstarch serves a similar function: Starch molecules absorb water and expand, not only thickening the liquid phase of the sauce, but also physically preventing the proteins from binding into long, tangled strands and the fats from separating out and pooling.

Can you freeze homemade cheese sauce? ›

Yes, friends. It freezes beautifully. I used my silicone baby food molds and then popped those suckers out to store in a ziplock freezer bag for anytime I get a craving for some cheesy goodness.
