I’ve been reviewing dairy-free products for over a decade, but I still get intrigued when something new comes out. And Nolatte Dairy-Free Mixes definitely caught my attention. They are instant seasoning and dip powders in two of America’s favorite snack flavors: Ranch and Sour Cream & Onion.
These blends were created to sprinkle on plain chips or whisk into mayonnaise for a quick dip. But their versatility extends to other applications like snack mixes, rice, roasted potatoes, and more.
Tasting Notes for Nolatte Dairy-Free Mixes
Both Nolatte varieties are heavy powders that do tend to clump quite a bit. Several times I had to stick a butter knife through the big opening to break things up. It still sprinkles on in little clumps, but they quickly break up when tossed or whisked.
The tangy flavor with underlying herbiness definitely shouts ranch dressing. I whipped it with mayo and a little water. It was good, but needed just a little more zing. A light squeeze of lemon made it pop! I really enjoyed this on green salads, grains, and steamed vegetables.

Sour Cream and Onion
The original purpose of this variety was to season plain, salted potato chips. But I’m much more of a popcorn fan. So I drizzled air-popped popcorn with coconut oil, sprinkled on some salt, liberally shook some Nolatte over top, and tossed it all together. The result has become my new nightly ritual while enjoying my favorite shows.

These are a great concept and deliver with good flavor. The Ranch could use a little more zest, but other than that is good. The mixes do tend to clump a little, but break up easily.
