Ingredients

  • 100 g plain flour
  • 100 g unsalted butter
  • 1 L milk
  • 200 g AdVital Powder
  • 150 g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg, ground
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions
 

  • Heat the milk and nutmeg in a saucepan over a low heat until milk starts to simmer. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
  • Heat the butter in a second saucepan over a low to medium heat until it is fully melted. Add the flour. Cook the mixture, stirring it with a wooden spoon, for 2 minutes (or until it starts to bubble). Remove the saucepan from the heat. Slowly add the milk, one ladle at a time, and stir the mixture constantly to prevent lumps.
  • Return the saucepan to a low heat. Cook the mixture for 20 minutes (or until sauce boils and thickens), and stir to avoid the mixture sticking to the bottom and burning.
  •  Stir in the cheese until the mixture is smooth. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste.
