Dr. Josh Axe, DC, DMN, CNS – Store-bought dressings and condiments are often packed with unhealthy ingredients and preservatives — and they can be quite expensive, too. That’s why I prefer making my own, like this Avocado Ranch Dressing. It’s a tasty twist on traditional ranch dressings. Using goat milk kefir and benefit-rich avocados makes this dressing super creamy and packs it with healthy fats and probiotics.
Not only is this avocado ranch dressing delicious atop salads, it’s wonderful used as a dipping sauce for my gluten-free Buffalo Chicken Tenders or raw veggies, as a spread in sandwiches and wraps, or as a topper for my Sweet Potato Tacos. Once you see how easy it is to prepare, you’ll never purchase dressing again!
Also, keep in mind that this recipe works well for keto dieters (only 3 net carbs per serving), Paleo enthusiasts, gluten-free eaters and more.
How to Make Avocado Ranch Dressing
Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until all the ingredients are smooth and well combined. Be sure that your avocados are very ripe — this will give the avocado ranch dressing extra flavor and smoothness.
This avocado ranch dressing requires no prep work and will keep in the refrigerator for 2–3 days. Once you try it, you’ll want to enjoy it on everything, so make a big batch!
