Cilantro Lime Dressing

Prep time: Total time: Serves: 10 (1 Tbsp)


  • 4 tablespoons vegan sour cream
  • (link to Motivate Your Plate)
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, diced finely
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • ½ teaspoon stevia (add gradually)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Water (adjusted for consistency)


  1. Put all ingredients into a food processor and blend until creamy. You may need to scrape down the sides of the food processor once or twice while blending and/or add water gradually until you reach your desired consistency.


  • You may substitute store bought vegan sour cream, regular sour cream, or greek yogurt in place of the homemade vegan sour cream.
  • Be careful with the stevia/sugar conversion. Stevia is MUCH sweeter than sugar and it is best to add the stevia/sugar gradually until you reach your desired level of sweetness.
