Real Deal AIP Alfredo with Shrimp- Almost too good to be true!

posted in: Uncategorized | 11

Creamy white decadent goodness doesn’t have to be a thing from the past on the autoimmune protocol, this AIP Alfredo is so good you might think it is the real thing!

I have been meaning to post this AIP Alfredo recipe since I discovered it… almost 6 months ago, and I feel terrible for keeping it to myself for so long. Unfortunately a lot of things have been pushing my blog down the to-do list and I am so sorry! One of the things that I have missed on the AIP is a savory cream sauce, and while the sauce in my Zucchini Love Boats recipe is pretty delicious, this AIP Alfredo recipe takes it to the next level!

Before I jump into the recipe, a little update on what has been keeping me so busy… besides being the mother of an extremely happy and active toddler, I finally finished all of my pre-requisite courses for nursing school. As a student who always excelled in humanities and avoided math and science taking classes like microbiology and anatomy was both eyeopening, humbling and fascinating! I mentioned my career plans in a previous post where I also spoke to my changing identity as a mother and someone who lives with chronic illness.


I climb ladders… and almost everything I can find!


I have decided to pursue a career as a nurse practitioner. Nursing is founded on what I think is the most important part of medicine: The patient! As intuitive as this may sound I had countless encounters with doctors who looked at my medical exams and not at me, treating my lab reports before even asking me how I felt. As a nurse practitioner I will build on a patient centered approach to care and use it to treat my own patients! I am excited to share with you all that I will be starting school in June in a direct entry DNP program for students who already have a bachelors degree in another field. Expect updates on everything that I am learning and how my transition from the patient to caregiver side of healthcare is going 🙂

Now let’s get down to the important business…. AIP ALFREDO!!!! I made it with shrimp, but feel free to get creative and use your protein of choice or even just use to dress up sautéed veggies!

  1. […] Alfredo with Shrimp from Slightly Lost Girl *Mikaela has been sitting on this recipe for months! It certainly looks worth the wait. […]

  2. Hi. Is there a substitute for heart of palm?

    • Unfortunately heart of palm is the key ingredient for the Alfredo and I haven’t found anything comparable. If you wanted to serve zoodles sautéed in garlic and olive oil with the shrimp I am sure that would be delicious 🙂

  3. You are a genius! Who would ever think hearts of palm would make such a creamy amazing sauce? I’ve been dairy-free for over 7 years now, and I firmly quashed all desires for alfredo. But last night, making this, I almost swooned! This is delicious and you are an angel to share it! I will put this on my weekly rotation, because it is so easy and so delicious. Thank you!!!

    • Hahaha honestly I think this is hands down my most amazing creation. I am shocked every time I eat it 😉

  4. Why didn’t you peel the shrimp? Does it make them more flavorful? Looks deelish!

    • Nope… laziness and actually I think they look prettier in the picture that way! Either way they taste great 🙂

    This sauce is amazing! I loved it with the zucchini noodles. Trying butternut squash tonight. I’m already thinking of new ways to use it: party dip, scalloped root veggies, etc.

  6. wondering where to buy hearts of palm that’s AIP compliant?

    • Cathy C

      I’ve found them at Trader Joe’s (in a bag, not a can) and canned at Whole Foods. I would think any big grocery store would have them. Look with the canned veggies, next to the artichoke hearts.
