Hold the butter and enjoy the classic flavour of a traditional Hollandaise sauce without the saturated fats found in butter. Yes, please!


  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp ground white pepper
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 cup Della Terra Butter Olive Oil, warmed
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
    1. Whisk together the egg yolks, lemon juice and 1 tbsp of warm water. Add the mixture to the jar of a blender.
    2. With the machine continuously running, slowly pour in olive oil, a little at a time. If the mixture thickens too quickly, add a little more warm water. Continue blending, adding remaining olive oil in a thin stream until the mixture emulsifies (thickens).
    3. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
