Alkaline Ranch Dressing That Is Keto & Alkaline!
If you love ranch dressing…stop buying it from the shops! This “Avocado Ranch Dressing” is the perfect dressing for veggies, salads – practically any meal. And yes, it’s another recipe showing just how easy it is to tick both boxes of keto and alkaline! These diets are incredibly similar (both high fat, high veggie, moderate protein, zero sugar, processed food, etc.)
So if you keep the carbs low and live alkaline, it is very easy to achieve nutritional ketosis.
We’ve talked about it before, and I have a bunch of other alkaline keto (alketosis!) recipes on my site (see the links below), and it is a great combination.
The Easy Way to Nutrient-Dense Days
This avocado ranch dressing recipe is superb for it too as it adds a LOT of healthy fat and nutrient-dense greens to your diet – on top of whatever meal it is you’re having! It doesn’t just have to go on salads, it can go on any meal!
And this is one of the keys to get enough fats to support nutritional ketosis – adding fat wherever you can…and oftentimes, making a fatty meal and then adding more fat on top (especially if you’re combining with intermittent fasting, as the fat easily keeps you feeling satiated and not at all hungry during the fasting stages).
One of my favorite alkaline hacks is to sneak in the nutrients while eating what you’d ‘normally’ eat. This is great when doing the alkaline diet with a family who is not really that into it – make the normal mean, and then top it with tons of nutrients!
My Avocado Ranch Dressing does exactly that – healthy fats from the avocado and flax oil, glutathione from the avocado too, detox power from the coriander (cilantro) and parsley plus chlorophyll too, antiviral power from the raw garlic (getting raw garlic is a must, as much as possible), and extra alkalinity from the lime. Boom.
Really, I have tried a ton of variations on this, and this is the perfect keto avocado ranch dressing…plus for keto, it has the added healthy fat boost. It takes the traditional ranch dressing recipe to a whole new level, and of course has none of the crap you get with processed, store-bought ranch dressing recipes.
Keto-Alkaline Avocado Ranch Dressing
Lasts for 3/4 days in the fridge in an air-tight container.
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1/4 cup parsley leaves
- 1/2 cup fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves
- 4 tbps fresh lime juice
- 1/4 cup flax oil
- 1/4 cup raw walnuts or cashews
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1/2 cup filtered water
- 1/4 tsp Himalayan pink salt
- 1/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
These can all be adjusted to taste, and doubled if you want to make more!
Simple…put everything in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth…that’s pretty much it!
And you have an avocado ranch dressing! If it is too thick, you can add more water, or more avocado if it’s too thin.
You can also use coconut or almond milk instead of water to make it more creamy, and if you do not want to use nuts, you can use coconut or another dairy-free yogurt.
This recipe can be served over salads, roasted veggies, and rice dishes – or even us as a spread for sandwiches.
It will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
