Easy Keto Blue Cheese Dressing with Kefir

Easy Keto Blue Cheese Dressing

Blue Cheese Dressing is one of those things that I've deprived myself of for most of my life. I absolutely love it! However, I was trained to believe that "fat is bad for you" and "fat makes you fat". When I discovered that's a lie... and embraced a Keto lifestyle to overhaul my personal health...This was one of the very first keto recipes I created.

This blue cheese dressing is keto friendly and doubles as a dip for veggies or wings. If you want a very strong blue cheese flavor, simply blend the blue cheese into the creamy base using a blender. Then toss in another handful of blue cheese crumbles.

Is there anything like blue cheese? Yum.

The Search...

Low Carb Keto salad dressings are pretty challenging to find in the store. When you do, they are often full of food additives and preservatives that most of us don't want anything to do with. For some reason many manufacturers think they need to add sugar to blue cheese dressing. Ick! No thank you!keto blue cheese dressing

The solution?

Fortunately, it's really simple to make your own with just a few basic ingredients. This easy Keto Dressing uses basic ingredients that you probably already have around the house. (Well, except maybe the blue cheese...unless you're like us and like to crumble it in all the salads!)

You can make this recipe either with heavy whipping cream or with kefir. We recommend you make your own milk kefir at home. Check out my video on how to make milk kefir at home (link below). It's very easy and rewarding!

Why Kefir?

Milk Kefir is a tangy fermented beverage that is loaded with good for you gut bugs (priobiotics). We love kefir in any cream based salad dressing is a great way to enjoy it's tangy flavor. It also has a fantastic shelf life in the refrigerator. We can easily go through a full batch of this in 3-4 days.

Plus! Most experts agree that even if you're lactose intolerant-- or avoiding dairy for health reasons--milk kefir is a healthy way to get a little creaminess back into your life.

What if I don't have Kefir?

No problem! Instead of using milk kefir, just use heavy whipping cream. Heavy whipping cream is a wonderful ingredient for a keto recipe because it's very low in carbs.

How many carbohydrates are in Kefir?

If you head to the store and look at a kefir label, you'll notice the commercially packaged kefir has quite a few carbs. Companies who mass produce kefir use a different process than we do when making it at home. I encourage you to make your own kefir at home to truly enjoy a low carb kefir. During the fermentation process, the kefir grains digest the lactose in milk. (Lactose is sugar found in milk) Therefore, the result is a delicious low-carb kefir. We ferment ours for 3 days which results in a tangy and low-carb kefir beverage!

Things Used in Easy Keto Blue Cheese Dressing with Kefir

*Warning- NEVER ingest any oil other than Young Living Vitality oils. The majority of Essential Oils on the market are adulterated with synthetic chemicals/ingredients that may be harmful for your health. When my recipes mention “Essential Oil”–I am always referring to Young Living Vitality Essential Oils. They are GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) according to the FDA.

We trust Young Living exclusively because we've been to their farms, asked questions of their technicians and scientists and even called and ask questions of customer service.

Young Living knows exactly where every single sourced oil comes from, has incredibly stringent (to the point of ridiculous according to their competitors) quality control, and absolutely won't blink an eye at rejecting large batch's of ingredients if something tests suspiciously. They do it all the time.
