Home Made Ranch Mix with Dairy Free Option

Home Made Ranch

Well, I told you I was kind of on a kick to come up with home made dry mixes!  No more packets for me!  I love making all my spice and sauce mixes from scratch, and personally I think they taste so much better, and I know they are better for you, too!  This ranch mix has become a staple on our house.  Having a dairy free husband has made me be a little more creative especially with sauces and dressings.  You could make this with regular milk for sure, be we make it with almond milk and I think it tastes just as good.  Just don’t accidentally make it with vanilla almond milk because that would be nasty.  Just ask my brother πŸ˜‰ Haha.

This is super simple and fast to throw together.  I usually just make the dry mix one batch at a time, but you could easily make it in bulk and just scoop out one portion at a time.  And if you live next to a Winco, their bulk spices become your new best friend. πŸ™‚

Add all your dry ingredients to a small mixing bowl (or shaker) and toss together.

 Add in the mayo, and almond milk and slowly whisk it until it’s creamy and smooth.  Now when you think you have it all mixed, it might still look a little lumpy.  It’s ok, that’s what olive oil mayo does, just keep whisking and it will eventually all smooth out.  I promise. πŸ™‚

    1. Simply for the nutritional info. If you compare, it’s only 35 calories per table spoon instead on 100. Plus I like the flavor a lot more πŸ™‚
