5-Minute Dairy-Free Ranch Dressing
And I know dairy is hard for people to give up — even if it is to get rid of chronic acne. It’s a big ask for some people. I was one of them.
My favourite foods used to be grilled cheese, pizza and fettuccini Alfredo.
So I get it.
What I do with my clients is offer up healthy substitutions for their favourite dairy products.
Need the creaminess in your coffee? Try full fat coconut milk.
Want a thick Greek-style yogurt? Try unsweetened coconut or cashew yogurt.
Love ice cream? Opt for a vegan ice cream sweetened with honey.
Have to have cheese? Try my cashew cheese recipe.
There is always an alternative for any dairy must-have.
One I get a lot from my clients is they want a dairy-free ranch dressing. People who love ranch really LOVE it.
I made this recipe for them.
Flavouring Up Vegetables
“Vegetables to me are just kinda plain and boring.”
I hear this a lot from new clients and it’s something we address right away. I want to see them hit that range of 7-10 servings of vegetables a day. That is what’s going to be providing them with a broad range of nutrients to help heal their body (which is how we heal their skin).
We do this by…
- Starting slowly — especially for those that eat minimal vegetables.
- Adding flavour to them.
Dips, sauces and this 5-minute dairy-free ranch dressing are perfect for here.
Add a drizzle over top over your vegetables or keep on the side to enjoy with them.

Yields 2 cups
- 1 ½ cups vegan mayo (I used soy-free vegenaise)
- ½ cup unsweetened almond or cashew milk (use less for a thicker dressing)
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp dried dill
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp paprika
- ¼ tsp sea salt
- Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix until well combined.
- Pour into a glass mason jar and store in the fridge.
- Stays fresh for a minimum of 7 days.
I find it tastes even better the next day once the flavours have had time to meld together.
