Vegan Yogurt

I pretended to like cow dairy yogurt. Because, you know, eating yogurt means you’re cool. At least according to all the yogurt commercials. And I’m all about being cool.

I’m not really that cool because it’s not really cool to eat something you don’t like. And I didn’t like cow dairy yogurt even though I tried one kind after another.

So I was skeptical about vegan yogurt, but when I finally gave it a try, I realized I had finally arrived. I liked vegan yogurt.

Do vegans eat ranch?

Ranch is the number one flavor in American kitchens, but because it’s usually made with cow dairy products, it’s not vegan. However, it’s easy to make your own dairy-free ranch and there are even brands that sell it these days too.

    Yummy! And less calories which I love!

    I’ve made this a few times now and it’s so good!!! It doesn’t last very long between my mother and I. We add about 3/4 tsp of white vinegar to make it a little tangier, but I’m also using homemade soy yogurt so perhaps if I was using the Silk that wouldn’t be necessary. Love love love.

      Michele! Thank you! Also, you are my hero because I have “making my own homemade soy yogurt” on my to do list! It’s gonna happen! Also, I love your idea of adding apple cider vinegar for some tang! I use this dip for veggies, but also for salads too!

    How long do you think it lasts in an airtight Container in the refrigerator ?

    • Avatar thumbnail image for MarlyMarly

      Hi Brynn. It should last 3 – 5 days in an airtight container in the fridge. You can add a little apple cider vinegar or even unsweetened almond milk to use it as a dressing on salads. It’s a favorite summertime salad dressing or dip for veggies!

    Best dip I’ve had since going vegan, including store bought! I’m pregnant and craving celery + dip, this is perfect thank you <3

      I think the combination of celery and ranch dip is SO good! But, I think ranch dip makes everything a little bit better! 🙂 Congrats on your pregnancy! ❤️

    Made this with almond yogurt. Very good

      So glad you liked it Susie! I haven’t tried almond yogurt yet but I’m looking forward to it!

    I’m not vegan, but have recently developed an allergy to milk protein, and this recipe has absolutely fixed my craving for carrots and ranch dip! The suggestion to add white vinegar made it perfect. I too make my own soy yogurt and before I added the vinegar it tasted a little too “soy”. Great recipe! Thank you for posting

    I added more nooch, dill, salt and put in a bit of onion powder, was improved! It’s a great dip, but I feel like it’s missing something, I’m going to try the vinegar! Thanks!
