Do Vegans Eat Ranch?

  • Use it as a thick, creamy dressing on your salads
  • Serve it over a baked potato
  • Dip potato chips in it.
  • Add it to easy pasta salad for added flavor!

How to Make Vegan Yogurt Ranch Dip

Sometimes the word healthy can be code for…not that good. You get me. Right?

But not this time. Because I’ve got a secret ingredient, vegan yogurt.

Here’s the deal, I kind of 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.

OK. I’m being facetious because I’m not really that cool, but who cares. 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.

To make vegan ranch dip, combine plant-based plain yogurt (not sweetened) with minced green onion, garlic powder, fresh parsley, dried dill, nutritional yeast flakes, salt, and pepper.

For added tang, stir in a teaspoon or two of apple cider vinegar as well!

Refrigerate for about 30 minutes and then you’re ready to serve!

Today I’m using the Silk Dairy-free Simply Plain Yogurt. It has 11 grams of plant power protein in every serving! However, there are a number of vegan yogurts you can use. Just be sure to grab one that’s labeled “Plain”.

To make this vegan ranch dip with cashews instead of yogurt, soak 1 cup of raw cashews in a container overnight. Drain and reserve the excess water. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until very smooth. Add in reserved water if necessary.

  1. 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!

    • 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!

  2. 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! ❤️

  3. 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

  4. 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!

  5. Fantastic, made this for my grand daughter who is vegan now. The vingar made it better giving it a zing. I luv too, certainly will be making it again for both of us.

    • Thanks, Colleen! I’m so glad both you and your granddaughter loved this vegan ranch dip! I love a little zing in my dip! 🙂 I even use this on baked potatoes too!
