Easy Homemade Ranch Dip (High Protein!)

My super easy Homemade Ranch Dip is everything you can want in a dip – thick, creamy, tangy, and it’s high protein! In literally 5 minutes, you’ll have the best healthy homemade ranch.

Isn’t that picture a beauty? Okay, so I’ve been focused on making more wholesome plates (lots of veggies, lean protein, carbs for energy) and using less processed stuff.

The store-bought bottles of ranch have so much junk included in the recipe list! While I was in the grocery aisle, I literally just thought – why not make some myself? And let me tell you, this stuff is seriously addicting. As the photo suggests, definitely try these with my savory Air Fried Potato Wedges!

Ingredients

  • Greek Yogurt – to add in some extra protein, we use plain, nonfat Greek yogurt as the main base for this dip. It also helps us get that creamy consistency we’re looking for!
  • Mayonnaise – A little bit of mayonnaise adds a more balanced flavor and some healthy fats.
  • Dill Weed – You can find this in the seasoning aisle of your local grocery store. This is the key to that classic ranch flavor – no premade seasoning packets required for this recipe!
  • Worcestershire Sauce – Shh… This is my secret ingredient. A splash of Worcestershire gives a slight smoky flavor that makes this ranch dip undeniably delicious.
  • Lemon Juice – A splash of lemon juice really lightens up the flavor of the ranch dip! Don’t skip this ingredient.

FAQs

Can I use this homemade ranch for a salad dressing?

Most definitely! The dip is going to be very thick and creamy… but to make a dressing consistency, all you do is thin it out with a bit of water. I list some instructions for that in the recipe card.

How long does homemade ranch last?

I’ve kept this in the refrigerator for 3 weeks – just make sure you seal it well. But trust me, your family will eat this up way before then!

Does high-protein homemade ranch dip have any sugar in it?

This recipe for homemade ranch actually has no sweeteners – no sugar, honey, nothing! I’ve found that a lot of dressings and dips have unnecessary sweeteners inside. You don’t need any sugar in this at all; save your sugar intake for the good stuff.
