Why you’ll love this dip!

If you’re like me, you love a good platter of fresh veggies with dip. It truly takes fresh vegetables from bland and boring to satisfying and super delicious. The best part about the dip is that it’s just as good as the regular dips you’d find at the store, but it packs so much more protein and nutrition!

The base of this dip is cottage cheese, but you’d truly never know it. If you’re not a big cottage cheese fan because of the texture, you have nothing to worry about here. This whipped cottage cheese dip is super smooth and has a creamy texture just like any normal dip.

A 1/2 cup serving of this dip has an impressive 14 grams of protein, so it’ll actually keep you full! Pair this healthy ranch dip with your favorite veggies or whole grain crackers for a high protein, high fiber balanced snack!

What you need

The best part about this recipe is that it only requires two ingredients!

  • Cottage cheese: You’ll need a 16 oz container of cottage cheese for this recipe. Full fat cottage cheese will give you the creamiest result, but you can low fat if you prefer to.
  • Ranch seasoning powder: You can use the classic Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning, or I love this one too from Amazon (plus it’s cheaper!). You’ll need one full packet of dry ranch dressing mix or 3 tablespoons.

The reason this dip comes out so creamy is because you’re going to blend it! To make this creamy dip (and any whipped cottage cheese for that matter), you’ll need a good blender or food processor! This Ninja system is my all-time favorite (I prefer it over my Vitamix!).

How to Make Cottage Cheese Ranch Dip

  1. Add a 16 oz container of cottage cheese to a blender with one packet of ranch seasoning powder (or 3 tablespoons).
  2. Blend on high until smooth and creamy. Serve with fresh vegetables, whole grain crackers, toasted pita bread or your favorite potato chips.

FAQ

I don’t like cottage cheese. Does it taste like it?

This dip definitely has the same creamy, mild and slightly sweet flavor of cottage cheese, but the texture is totally different! If you don’t like cottage cheese because of the curd texture, you don’t have to worry about that here. When you blend it, it truly transforms into a silky smooth, creamy dip!

Can I make this without a blender?

You can! Just mix cottage cheese with the dry seasonings. It will still be delicious, but the texture will be different because the cottage cheese curds will be intact. If you like the texture of cottage cheese regularly, you’ll love it!

Can I make this and store it in the fridge for the week?

Yes, you can store this easily in the fridge in an airtight container for 4-5 days.

Variations & Substitutions

  • Add fresh dill, a squeeze of lemon juice or a tablespoon of fresh herbs like fresh basil to give it more of a homemade flavor.
  • Mix it up with this Fiesta Ranch Dip mix for a little kick!
  • Add buffalo sauce to turn it into buffalo ranch dip!
  • Add a 1/2 cup of sour cream or Greek yogurt for more of a tangy flavor.
  • Instead of cottage cheese, swap it for plain Greek yogurt for an equally delicious high protein dip option.
  • Add extra seasonings like garlic powder, onion powder or black pepper.
  • Make a batch with your favorite veggies each week and store in a veggie platter tray with a lid for super easy snacking.
  • Add a little milk to thin the dip into a salad dressing!
  • More different ways to use it: it on a chicken sandwich, add to your favorite wrap, or use it to dip buffalo chicken wings into!
