The Best EVER Healthy Greek Yogurt Ranch

The Best EVER Healthy Greek Yogurt Ranch
I feel like in terms of food, ranch can be kind of controversial… you either love it or are repulsed. There is no in between. I LOVE a good creamy, homemade ranch… not so much the bottled stuff. The texture and ingredient lists generally throw me off and take me back to high school days when I’d have it with pizza all too frequently. No thank you. This dip is actually GOOD for you, packed with protein, healthy fats, and most importantly ingredients you understand. It holds up great in the fridge and just gets better and better as the flavours meld together. This is a great option to add to your meal prep rotation for salads, bowls or to make boring chopped veggies a little more exciting. The best part is because it is greek yogurt based, you can count it as a protein source and really enjoy a good amount of it, no skimping on a tablespoon. This recipe is a client favourite, and for good reason.

If you can, opt for organic, grass fed greek yogurt. Regardless, make sure you choose an unsweetened option for this recipe. Full fat is ideal for the creaminess factor, but if you can’t track it down, nonfat works just as well. If you intend to use this as a salad dressing, use heavy whipping cream instead of mayonnaise, and increase to 1/2 or 3/4 cup. This will provide a thinner consistency and a dose of healthy fats since this recipe is not oil based.


  • 1 3/4 cups greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil mayonnaise OR heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp onion powder or 1 1/2 tbsp dried minced onion
  • 1/2 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tbsp fresh chives, minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, minced or sub dried parsley
  • salt + pepper to taste
  • Step 1 Mix all ingredients together well and store in the fridge.
  • Step 2 You can enjoy this right away, but ideally let it sit in the fridge for a couple hours to allow the flavours to meld together.
  • Step 3 Generally, this will last until the expiry date of the yogurt.
