Making ranch dip/dressing is easy. Most homemade ranch recipes contain sour cream and/or mayo as a base. I chose to use a whole food brand of mayo to keep this recipe Whole30, paleo and simply healthier. I also added:

  • Dried parsley
  • Dried dill
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Almond milk (any milk will work)
  • Salt + pepper

Add everything to a bowl and stir it all together or add it to a mason jar, give it a shake, and you’ve got a fast and tasty ranch dressing that’s so much better than the bottled variety.

Let it sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes and you’ll have a great ranch dip.

Want to swap the mayo for Greek yogurt? No problem, that will work too. It won’t be paleo or Whole30, but it will save you some calories.

Let’s talk about those “can’t eat just one” flavorful popchips. My family goes through these pretty quickly just straight out of the bag. But I do love finding new ways to serve them up, especially for game day. On a platter alongside fresh veggies, popchips are an absolute delicious pairing with this homemade ranch dip. popchips are the perfect game day snack – they taste wonderful with that crunch we crave and they’re a better-for-you option that won’t leave you feeling greasy or guilty.

You can find popchips at your local grocer (or on and you might notice the popchips ridges bag has an updated look! My husband and I went crazy for the buffalo ranch and I love select varieties are Non-GMO. My son and daughters, though, really have a thing for the cheddar & sour cream flavor. We are all also huge fans of the third variety – tangy barbecue. And, of course, we’re all about the ridges!! They give these chips a bigger crunch, bolder flavor and make them much sturdier, great for dipping!
