Gluten and Dairy Free White Sauce

It’s called ‘white sauce’ but as my kids all pointed out, it’s actually very yellow! On one occasion the 2 girls thought it was a bit like ‘slime’ as it had thickened a little to much, but it tasted sooo good! Please have a play with the recipe and tweak it according to your tastes.

  • 2-3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 heaped Tbsp. Tapioca Flour (use more for thicker or less for runnier)
  • 2 Cups coconut milk
  • Optional add-ins like salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder etc.
  • Optional – add some cheese to make it a cheese sauce.
  1. Heat a small saucepan over medium heat and melt butter.
  2. Add the tapioca flour, stirring continuously for about 1 minute until it becomes white and frothy.
  3. Add the coconut milk and continue to stir/whisk until the flour is completely dissolved. (sometimes removing the saucepan from the heat during this part can help you whisk it in a little better)
  4. Return to heat and continue stirring until it’s as thick as you would like it.
  5. Season with add-in’s.
  6. Once thick, remove from heat (remember that it will continue to thicken!) or add in optional cheese and stir until melted.
  • Have a play with the amount of butter and tapioca flour that you use.
  • You could also add cheese to this if you like.
