High Protein Ranch Dressing

1 Bowl228 cals

Homemade Greek yogurt dressing is here, ranch edition! This High Protein Ranch Dressing is easy to make in minutes, packed with healthy macros, and tastes just as good as the “real” thing!

All you need for this one? A bowl to mix your ingredients in and something to mix them with!

Add right into your bowl 6 ounces of plain fat free Greek yogurt, 9 tablespoons of fat free sour cream, 1/4 teaspoon of dill weed, 1 teaspoon of parsley, 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder, 3/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper, and some water.

The amount of water you put into the mix will depend on the consistency you want your dressing to be, I use around 2 tablespoons. As a rule of thumb:

  • More water = less creamy
  • Less water = more creamy

Mix all of those ingredients together until your high protein ranch dressing is smooth.

Want even more protein? Mix in 1/2 scoop of a natural flavored protein powder with a little more water.

That’s it, your dressing is ready! Store it in the fridge or prep whatever you’re putting it on. Some of my favorite ways to eat this?

  • On a salad
  • As a dip with healthier chips or pita bread
  • Mixed in with some fresh vegetables
  • Spread onto some rice cakes

A quick variation to this recipe is to add some bacon bits to it for a bacon protein ranch dressing!

    Hi. I need some clarification please. The serving size says 1 bowl (which is a lot) so is the nutrition information for the entire bowl or the 2 Tbsp serving, which I’m assuming, is the serving (per use) size? Thanks a bunch!!

      Hi Peggy! Calories listed are for the whole recipe. You can divide accordingly by however many servings you’ll need/use.

    Hi there! Would you recommend (or recommend against) using Whey protein powder in this recipe? As opposed to a plant based one, for example. Thank you!

    • Derek Howes on May 1, 2021 at 8:31 am

      Hi Viv! Unflavored whey works great for this one!

    This recipe is delicious! I made it as written, but without the added protein powder or water. Best homemade ranch I’ve ever tasted. Great work on this recipe! Thank you!
