Is Ranch Dressing Keto?

Regular ranch dressing is not keto-friendly as most of the store-bought options contain extra added sugar. Usually, a classic ingredient in homemade ranch dressing is buttermilk which is slightly higher in carbs. However, it’s super easy to make a low-carb ranch dressing using keto-friendly ingredients that tastes even better than the original.

If you’re wondering if Hidden Valley ranch is keto-friendly the answer is yes, but in moderation. With only 2g of net carbs for a 2 tablespoons serving, you can easily indulge in the original Hidden Valley ranch.

Ingredients in Keto Ranch Dressing

To make sure that you’re using the right keto ingredients you’ll have to start by reading the ingredients list on the mayonnaise because most of the store-bought jars have added sugar and are made with unhealthy oils.

First of all, find mayonnaise that’s made with olive or avocado oil for a healthier option. It would be great if can use homemade mayonnaise, but if you want to save some time grab one that doesn’t have any sugar listed in the ingredients.

Secondly, gather all the spices. This keto dressing is so easy to make and has less than 1g of carbs for a tablespoon. In fact, it has 0.5g and you can have 2 tablespoons with no worries.

Because we are using sour cream and heavy whipping cream along with the mayonnaise, we’ll result in a creamy dressing balanced by the acidity in the lemon. You can substitute the lemon with vinegar too.

Here are the low carb ingredients you’ll need to make the best keto ranch dressing:

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp fine pink salt
  • 3 tsp lemon juice

My low carb ranch dressing is packed with flavor and has a little kick from the freshly squeezed lemon juice.

You can make it as thin or as thick as you want, the dressing is so creamy, insanely delicious, and most important high in healthy fats (much needed on a keto diet)

How to Make Keto Ranch Dressing?

If you read my blog for a while, you know that I am a huge fan of simple recipes that don’t give you headaches until you can find all the ingredients.

Ranch dressing is usually made using buttermilk or buttermilk powder for some extra tanginess which also makes this sauce easier to drizzle. These ingredients aren’t a staple in my kitchen, and I choose to use lemon juice to make ranch dressing without buttermilk that still tastes delicious.

    My son said this is the best ranch dip he has ever had, including the one made by his down-home mother-in-law cook! I scaled back on the onion powder and added more sour cream to reduce the mayo taste, but otherwise, followed it exactly!
