I love sour cream! It’s silky, creamy, richness in my mouth! Yum! Unfortunately, I ate so much sour cream growing up that I became lactose intolerant. I would eat a whole tub at one sitting. Not good!
I know there are a few dairy free alternatives on the shelf but I wanted to make a Dairy Free Ranch Dip from scratch that is actually good for me. Something that my kids and friends would love.
After several attempts, this delicious, creamy and flavorful recipe was created! I love using this with flax crackers, carrots sticks, or in a wrap. I am in love with this Dairy Free Ranch Dip and I am POSITIVE that you will too! Bon Appetit!

Dairy Free Ranch Dip
- Yield: 2 cups
- Category: Appetizer
- 1 1/2 cups whole raw cashews
- 2 cups filtered water
- 1/4 teaspoon Himalayan Salt or Sea Salt
- 3 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon minced onion
- 1 teaspoon Himalayan Salt
- 6 Tablespoons filtered water
- 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
- 1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
- Place first three ingredients in a glass jar or bowl. Cover with a towel and rubber band and allow to sit at room temperature for 6-8 hours. This process will allow cashews to soak up water and become soft.
- Place soaked cashews in a mesh strainer and rinse well with water.
- Add soaked cashews, lemon juice, onion powder, minced onion, salt and filtered water to a food processor. Blend until smooth, about 1-2 minutes.
- Fold in dried minced onion and dill weed. Pour into a sealed container. Chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours before serving. Bon Appetit!
