How To Make Healthy & Creamy Italian Dressing

Jump To Recipe

I like to give myself a pat on the back every time I stay strong and order a salad instead of the juicy burger I’m really craving, only to realize after scarfing it down that the burger had fewer calories…

While a salad might seem like the healthier choice, creamy Italian dressing and other dressings alike send a spike through your calorie intake. And that once healthy green plate now drizzled in dressing goodness, is loaded with fat and unwanted calories. 

Making your own healthy creamy Italian dressing recipe at home is a great way to stick to your diet goals AND enjoy your greens. Going out to eat? No problem! Pack a little container of your homemade creamy Italian dressing and take it with you.

Creamy Italian Dressing Nutrition

Restaurant and store-bought dressings are often loaded with fat, calories, and unnecessary added ingredients. Because this creamy Italian dressing recipe contains just eight ingredients, your healthy salad will actually stay a healthy salad! Imagine that! 🤣

One of the star ingredients, avocado oil (or olive oil), contains antioxidants that can help combat damaging free-radicals. Both oils are also good for your skin because they contain vitamin E and lutein. Pair that with the wrinkle-reducing benefits of collagen and you’ve got one awesome skin-healthy dressing!

The other ingredients in this creamy Italian dressing recipe contain little to no calories, and swapping regular milk for dairy-free milk helps cut down on the fat. 

You know it’s healthier when it’s homemade, and you’ll even save a little dough by doing so!
