Healthy Vegan Yogurt Ranch Dip. It’s a thing and, trust me, you want it. Of course, if you’re not into creamy, savory, ranch dips, then you might want to pass, but I mean, who isn’t into that? And if you like easy vegan dip recipes, you should try my Vegan Taco Dip or how about my Vegan Queso Dip? Pardon me as I dip into something a little more comfortable.
I used to love that song, I wanna be a cowboy…and you can be my cowgirl.
Do you hear that sound? It’s Shawn moaning in disgust.
That song is probably a little too techno sounding for his taste. Not enough blues-rock.
But my thought is…it’s hard to argue with lyrics like this:
Riding on the range
I’ve got my boots on
I’ve got my boots…dusty
Anyway, I never fancied myself as the cowgirl to my man. I would rather ride off into the sunset side by side. And if I were being completely honest, my horse might be out in front…at least sometimes.
There’s something about the word ranch that makes me feel all rugged and cowgirlish. I’ve never worked on a ranch, although I did help my uncle with his small dairy farm whenever we went to visit him. It was more like my uncle gave me tasks that he thought I might like — like feeding the calves with a bucket that had a nipple on the side. He was right. I loved that. A lot.
I’m a city girl now, but I still have a love of the countryside. And so there’s something about making a ranch dip that makes me feel in touch with those bucolic roots.

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. Could it be that I was finally…cool?
Today I love adding a dollop of vegan yogurt over a bowl of fruit in the morning. It’s perfection.
But now I’m finding new ways to use vegan yogurt every day. Including, today’s vegan yogurt ranch dip recipe.
You can serve this vegan yogurt ranch dip in a lot of different ways:
