Vegan Chipotle Ranch Dressing

This dressing will always be a fan favourite – who doesn’t love dipping anything and everything in a yummy, spicy ranch dressing. This recipe is easy to make and has a few simply ingredients that I know you’ll love!

Vegan Chipotle Ranch Dressing


  • 1 cup raw cashews (soaked in hot water 30 minutes, or overnight in cool water)
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (plus more to taste)
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce*
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2-1 tsp maple syrup (optional//or other sweetener of choice)
  • 1/4 tsp ground chipotle chile
  • 2 Tbsp fresh minced dill


  1. Soak cashews in very hot water for 30 minutes. While cashews are soaking, measure out almond milk and add lemon juice and set aside to curdle (this makes your vegan “buttermilk”)
  2. Drain and rinse cashews, then transfer to a small blender (a blender is preferred over a food processor for achieving a smooth texture) and add almond “buttermilk,” garlic, salt, pepper, onion powder, vinegar, maple syrup (optional), ground chipotle chile, and dill. Blend on high for 1-2 minutes or until very creamy and smooth, stropping to scrape down the sides as needed.
  3. Taste and adjust flavour as needed, adding more salt to taste, ground chipotle or adobo sauce for heat, maple syrup for sweetness, lemon juice or vinegar for acidity, garlic for garlic flavour, or herbs for a more herbal flavour. 
  4. Use immediately at room temperature or refrigerate for 3-4 hours to chill. It will thicken in the refridgerator, so you can add more almond milk or water later on too thin if needed.
  5. Enjoy with vegetables, wraps, salads, pizza or wing dipping sauce. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator up to 5-7 days.
