Ranch Dip (AIP/Paleo/Whole30/Keto)

This is a healthy allergen friendly version of the classic ranch dip. It’s very easy to make and is AIP compliant, Paleo, Whole 30 and Keto!

One way of making veggies fun is to eat them with dip! But when following the autoimmune protocol, dip options can be very limited. You may not be able to buy many convenient dip options but I promise you this ranch dip is so simple to make. It should only take 5 minutes, at the most, to whip up!

What You Need to Make this Ranch Dip

Coconut Cream

So for coconut cream, I use the top of a can of coconut milk. You can also find just the coconut cream being sold either in a can or carton. However, I prefer to use canned coconut milk, mostly because I always have it on hand, and I use up the remaining coconut milk.

If you want the coconut cream to harden so it’s easier to separate, you can place the can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. But if you haven’t done this just avoid shaking the can and just scoop the top portion out to use as coconut cream.

My fave is Aroy-D coconut milk, as it does not contain any extra gums or preservatives.

If you want your ranch dip extra creamy, or if you find the coconut cream too chunky, just whip it up in the blender until it’s smooth!

Apple Cider Vinegar

Tang is an important feature of ranch dip, so that’s where acv comes in. You can also use lemon juice!


  • Dried Parsley
  • Dried Dill

  1. Wow!! So easy and SO TASTY!! Thank you!

  2. How long do you think this would last in the fridge? Thanks! It looks really easy, I can’t wait to try it!

  3. Hi, I live in the U.K. and I can only find 1 coconut milk in a carton that doesn’t contain rice. Every other canned or carton coconut milk/cream, contains rice. Could you recommend a brand that doesn’t contain rice as I believe rice is not allowed on the AIP diet. The carton I’ve found that doesn’t contain rice is quite watery and I was wanting to make a dip, but that requires a thicker consistency from coconut cream.

    I’m completely new to this. Thank you.

    • I’m not sure if they sell it in the UK, but Thai’s Kitchen carton coconut milk is AIP as well as Cha’s organic coconut milk.
      I’ve always used Aroy-d canned coconut milk, which was thought to be AIP until recently as they started listing an additive on the ingredient list, which is frustrating but I’ve been able to tolerate it. I hope this helps!

    Mine turned out runny not like a dip. Any suggestions? Thank you.

    • Make sure to use coconut cream. I use the cream from the top of a full fat coconut milk can. But if want to make sure it’s creamy, you can buy straight coconut cream. Another trick is refrigerating it for a few hours before serving! Hope this helps 🙂

  5. Looks great. I thought dill was not AIP compliant? I love it, so I hope it is 🙂

  6. Yours are the first AIP recipes I’ve seen that actually look appealing. Thank you.
