Healthy Yogurt Ranch Dip and Dressing

I wanted to share my easy homemade Healthy Yogurt Ranch Dip and Dressing with you all!  My kids LOVE LOVE ranch with their veggies and salad and to dip their chicken when they don’t love how I have cooked it 😂.  I hate how many unnecessary ingredients there are in it and how unhealthy it can be. So I started making my own, it took some tweaking to find the balance of spices that they liked, but now everyone enjoys and I don’t have to stress when we run out.  This Healthy Yogurt Ranch can be a dip or a dressing and comes together with simple ingredients in less than 5 minutes! Check out how easy it is to make!

There are only certain brands that they like to begin with and I am not getting to a variety of stores these days so this has been super helpful for us.  If you have followed along for a little while you will know that we rely on raw veggies and dip.  This is especially helpful as warmer weather is coming.  We love having raw vegetables or a salad has a side option for grilling so we can stay outside and play longer.  Healthy Yogurt Ranch Dressing & Dip - Photo

Once you have the initial pantry spices stocked you can always make this healthy yogurt ranch as long as you have yogurt around!  Check out the recipe below and feel free to tweak the balance of spices for your families taste!
