We have prepared our own white sauce with butter, garlic, almond milk, and heavy cream.

Can I double up the recipe?

Yes, of course. Spiralize more zucchinis and make a double batch to serve a big crowd.

Please note - even if you double up the sauce, cooking time stays the same.

How to serve?

Can I store the leftovers?

Of course. To freeze this keto recipe just keep it in an airtight container for up to 2 months.

To reheat, let the Alfredo thaw for some time once the sauce separates from it (as it often happens) add a few splashes of heavy cream before reheating.
