Paleo & Whole30 Ranch Dressing or Dip

This Whole30 Ranch Dressing or Dip is the best ranch around – you’ll will never go back to the bottled stuff again! Plus, it’s allergy friendly and can even be made vegan – woohoo!
 Homemade Ranch Dressing With Carrot

We LOVE this recipe! I always have this homemade ranch dressing in my fridge and I promise you – it’s better than anything you will every buy at the store! It can also easily be converted to a ranch dressing recipe by thinning out with filtered water. I find that when I thin it out with dairy free milk it effects the flavor, but water works like a charm 🙂

A lot of the dairy free or Paleo ranch dressings I’ve tried are good but have an “off” taste. But I can assure you that this dressing has no “off” taste and is perfectly ranch-y (if that’s a word!). I’m  sure it will become a staple in your home like it is in mine. I make a double batch of this every single week and we simply can’t go without it 🙂

Paleo & whole30 Ranch Dressing/Dip

This whole30 ranch dressing or dip is the best ranch around - everyone who tries it asks for the recipe. You will never go back to the bottled stuff again! Plus, it's Whole30 and Paleo Compliant and can even be made vegan - woohoo!
Note- If the coconut cream is too hard to combine, place it in a food processor or blender along with the mayo and process on low until combined.
*For coconut cream place full-fat canned coconut milk into the fridge for 24 hours and scoop the cream off of the top

    You wonderful person! I made the mayo last night. I do not like avocado mayo. I made the ranch this morning before work. I had to omit the coconut cream because I didnt have any. I tasted the ranch tonight. O M G!!! It tastes like ranch!! Thank you thank you!

    • YAY Jessica!!! Yeah, I don’t really like the avocado mayo either – it has a strong aftertaste, especially if you’re using it for ranch. I’ve been making a double batch of this ranch recipe every Wednesday for years and it’s still a family favorite! I’m so happy you liked it too 😊


    • While it’s normal for it to thin out a bit it shouldn’t be really runny. You only want to blend it on very low, enough for it to just combine. You might have over blended, sorry! However, it should thicken up a bit when you place it in the fridge. Sorry about that!!!


      • Noodlbeast

        I think I over blended cause it’s all separated! I’ll try again! Thank you for the quick reply!!

    I’m excited to try this ranch recipe. But does it have a strong coconut flavor? My family’s cannot stand the taste of coconut (we’ve all tried to love it). I usually substitute homemade almond milk for coconut milk but I understand we need to use something thicker, a cream. So wondering if the 1/4 cup is an overpowering coconut flavor? Or something mild we could try to deal with?
    Thank you,

    • Hi Rachel, we don’t think it tastes like coconut at all but we are used to coconut and don’t mind it. I used the coconut cream in place of sour cream so you can use any dairy free sour cream recipe as a substitute. I’ve also used plain non-dairy yogurt and that worked well. Of coarse, any substitutions you make will slightly alter the flavor so you may need to adjust the seasonings to your liking when making substitutions and choose something with an extremely mild flavor so it does’t alter the ranch flavor too much. Hope this helps!!
