Avocado Ranch Dip with the Vitamix 7500 #HolidayEntertaining2016
This Avocado Ranch Dip is a healthier version than your everyday ranch, and it has a hidden vegetable: cauliflower.
This makes a thick dip, a hummus consistency, if you want it thinner add more red wine vinegar but I found this easier to pick up with carrots (it also makes a great spread for sandwiches).
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Vitamix. My first Vitamix was the S30 and with that, I brought you the recipe for Roasted Cauliflower Dip. It’s a great little machine but I had issues making homemade Larabars and coconut breakfast balls, I needed more power. Enter the Vitamix 7500.
This bad girl has a 2.2hp motor base, which will blend any whole food ingredient. So what does that mean?
- Ice cream and other frozen desserts
- Nut butters
- Smoothies, juices, and milks
- Dips and spreads
- Doughs and batters
- Purees and dressing
Other features of the Vitamix 7500 is a low profile 64-ounce container. This container is massive and holds a lot, all while fitting snuggly under your kitchen cabinets.
Those are all great and all but I love how easy it is to clean! There is nothing to take apart and you simply blend water and a drop of soap for a minute and rinse. That’s it!

Okay guys, I’ll be the first admit that this isn’t the prettiest of recipes, but it’s super tasty. I love the zest of the red wine vinegar and dill and the fact that it’s quick and easy to whip up makes this avocado ranch dip a winner in my books.
