Healthy Hollandaise Sauce
This Healthy Hollandaise Sauce is a lighter, GUILT-FREE “faux” Hollandaise Sauce that tastes just as good as the real thing WITHOUT ANY butter! It’s luxuriously creamy thanks to the Greek yogurt and delightfully flavorful due to to hand picked seasonings, that you won’t even miss the butter! This Healthy Hollandaise Sauce is amazing on everything – from eggs Benedict and asparagus to salmon and shrimp. I can’t wait for you to try this guilt-free “indulgence!”

Recipe Notes

*Fat free, low fat or regular Greek Yogurt are all delicious. Do NOT use regular yogurt as it is not nearly as thick as Greek yogurt.
