5-Minute Dairy-Free Ranch Dressing

One of the first things I have new clients in The Clear Skin Solution work to start eliminating is dairy. You can read why in my chicken parmesan recipe from last month. 

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…

  1. Starting slowly — especially for those that eat minimal vegetables.
  2. 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.

  • 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


  1. Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix until well combined.
  2. Pour into a glass mason jar and store in the fridge.
  3. 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.
