25g butter 
25g Loprofin Mix
200mls Sno-Pro or Loprofin Drink  
1 vegetable stock cube 
½ pint boiling water 
salt and pepper to taste 


  1. In a medium saucepan, heat the butter over medium/low heat until melted, then stir in the Loprofin Mix with a wooden spoon until the mixture comes together (this is called a roux).
  2. Dissolve the stock cube in ½ pint of boiling water, and slowly add it to the roux a little at a time, stirring continually to avoid lumps.
  3. Once all the stock has been added, pour in the Loprofin Drink or Sno-Pro stirring to mix. Then reduce the heat and cook for 5 minutes stirring or using a whisk so the sauce stays nice and smooth.
  4. The sauce is now ready to use or cool and freeze until needed.
