I used to love ranch dip, you know the kind in the plastic tub. It was thick and creamy and tons of calories!

 

When I weighed nearly 300 lbs , I would dip vegetables in that popular brand and think I was eating healthy because after all, I was eating veggies!  Little did I know then that two tablespoons had 110 calories and 12 grams of fat!

 

Once I started on my weight loss journey and got serious about counting calories (yes, you have to count calories if you want to lose weight – I simplify it for you in my book HERE), I decided to make my own ranch dressing and make it as healthy as possible.

How do you make Ranch without milk?

 

 

It’s so easy you won’t believe it!  I add 2 Tablespoons of this dry ranch seasoning mix to non-dairy yogurt or vegan mayo and a few other ingredients and you have a creamy dairy free ranch dressing.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup non dairy yogurt
  • 1/4 cup vegan mayo
  • 1/4 cup non dairy milk
  • 2 Tbsp homemade dry ranch seasoning mix
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar

Instructions

  • Pour apple cider vinegar into non dairy milk and let it set for 5 minutes to become more "buttermilk" like.
  • In a large mason jar or container, place yogurt, mayo and homemade dry ranch seasoning mix and whisk together.
  • Add "buttermilk" and blend. Store in refrigerator and enjoy. 

Notes

Add more "buttermilk" for a thinner consistency.

 

Tips for enjoying this Dairy Free Healthy Ranch Dressing

 

  • add more “buttermilk” or water if you want to save even more calories and/or have a thinner consistency
  • soy milk will “curdle” and become more “buttermilk” like when you add apple cider vinegar, but other non-dairy milks won’t. It doesn’t matter you can enjoy any of them and you will still achieve a flavorful dressing

    I’m lactose intolerant so this is amazing! I usually just eat ranch dressing and hope for the best, I’m 100% going to try this.

    1. Cindy Author

      I think you will love it!

  2. Kate Loves Travel

    This looks like a delicious dip! I think so many people don’t realise how many calories are in shop bought dips – making your own healthy alternatives is such a great idea!

    This is perfect! I have a very good friend who has a severe dairy allergy, so I am always on the lookout for dairy-free recipes I can make. We’ve talked about doing a veggie platter for something healthy but it needs a dipping sauce. I’ll have to make this for our next get-together.

      I hope everyone enjoys it!

    Ranch is life. In fact, I think I could douse just about everything in a layer of ranch. I will definitely be giving this healthier alternative a try!

    1. Cindy Author

      Lol! Enjoy!

  5. Flossie McCowald

    Intriguing! I haven’t really had many dairy-free substitutes for yogurt etc since nursing my 2nd, who couldn’t handle me eating dairy. But I have lots of lactose-intolerant and/or vegan friends who would love this!

    1. Cindy Author

      You might be surprised at how tasty the dairy-free subs are, plus no cholesterol and low fat!

  6. Crystal (The Busy Mom Diary)

    This is great. I really needed something like this..we’ve been trying to eat healthier and a healthy dip is just what we needed.

  7. reesa


    I will have to share this with my vegan friends! I would love to give it a try myself!

    1. Cindy Author

    This dressing looks awesome! I’ve been eating so many more fresh veggies lately and don’t really feel like buying my ranch anymore. I”d rather make it instead. Stumbling across this recipe feels like fate!

    1. Cindy Author

      I think you will love it with your fresh veg!
