I LOVE hollandaise sauce, however when I was a kid I always hated getting stuck whisking the pot for a full 15 minutes on an exciting Saturday morning!

As a busy mom I don’t have time to “stir constantly” anymore.

Instead of whisking away in the kitchen, try this simple recipe for a light, lemony butter emulsion in your high powered blender (please note: it must be a blender that can heat through friction).

For those asking: Is hollandaise sauce keto? YES it is!

Psssst! If you’re on a Keto Diet you must check out my friend LeAnne of Healthful Pursuit.

Cayenne pepper is grown all around the world and is used to add zest to most dishes.

Who would think that cayenne pepper had such life changing health benefits?  Well it does!

Did you know that you help a person from suffering from a heart attack by giving him cayenne pepper in a cup of water.

It supplies vital nutrients to the heart, raises the body temperature, improves blood circulation by thinning the blood, removes toxins from the blood and rebuilds blood cells.

This pepper is a rich source of potassium, calcium and vitamins such as beta-carotene, B-complexes, vitamin A, vitamin E and vitamin C.

Although cayenne pepper is spicy, it heals stomach and intestinal ulcers.

Best Meal Planning App

It improves digestion by stimulating the peristaltic movement of the intestines. It heals digestive problems such as abdominal cramps, acidity and gas.


1. Is Hollandaise sauce gluten free?

Absolutely! Homemade hollandaise sauce is naturally gluten-free because its primary components are gluten-free. However, it’s essential to be cautious when dealing with store-bought or pre-packaged versions of hollandaise sauce. These commercial options might include gluten-containing ingredients like wheat flour or modified food starch, which can compromise its gluten-free status. To ensure your hollandaise sauce remains gluten-free, preparing it from scratch using gluten-free ingredients is your safest bet.

2. Is Hollandaise sauce keto friendly?

Absolutely! Hollandaise Sauce is an excellent fit for the keto diet due to its high-fat, low-carb profile. It provides valuable nutritional benefits, offering essential vitamins and minerals primarily sourced from its butter and egg yolks. Incorporating Hollandaise Sauce into your keto meal plan is a breeze, whether you’re drizzling it over grilled meats or using it to elevate your low-carb vegetable dishes. It’s a delicious and keto-friendly addition to your culinary repertoire.

  1. I didn’t use the tarragon and I had to substitute rep pepper flakes for cayenne but the sauce turned out beautiful and silky smooth….delicious!

    *just made this* it’s sitting while the asparagus finishes as I type. Thank you so much. The ratio is just fine, turned out great. I added a smidge more lemon juice for more lemon flavor, not to change the viscosity, and a bit more salt as I’m using Diamond kosher salt. These adjustments were made with a whisk afterwards and I’ll probably continue to adjust it that way in the future as it’s so subtle. Yum!

    Egg to butter ratio is off. 1 cup butter produces too much of a too thin sauce. Should have known better. Vitamix TNC 3.

      Interesting Adam! We want to update the recipe for people’s preference (thick vs thin). How much butter did you or would you use for a thicker hollandaise sauce?

      1. That does indeed seem like a lot of butter for so few yolks. Also, pretty sure once you add tarragon and vinegar, it’s no longer Hollandaise. It becomes a Bearnaise sauce.

  4. 4 stars
    Making a hollandaise sauce by hand is muscle driven and risky for scrambled eggs. The blender version is safer and takes a whole lot less time.
