Low Sugar Homemade Raspberry Chipotle Dressing

raspberry chipotle dressing in a glass jar with a black spoon in it surrounded by fresh raspberries.

Spicy, lightly sweetened raspberry chipotle dressing made with just a few simple ingredients like fresh raspberries and real honey is delicious as a dressing, dip, or marinade! (gluten-free, dairy-free)


  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 3 chipotle peppers canned in adobo
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper


  1. In a blender or food processor, combine the raspberries, chipotles, lime juice, olive oil, honey, salt and pepper. Blend until smooth.
  2. Taste and adjust the spice level as needed by adding more chipotle or raspberries if needed.
  3. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.


  • Frozen, thawed raspberries may be used in place of fresh.
  • You can use maple syrup in place of honey.
  • If you don’t like too much spice, I recommend starting with two chipotles, then tasting the dressing after blending. If it needs more spice, add another chipotle.
  • If the raspberry seeds bother you, you can strain the dressing through a fine mesh strainer after blending.
  • Canned chipotles in adobo can be found next to the other canned chiles in the Hispanic aisle of your grocery store. If you can't find them there, you can always get them on Amazon!
  • Leftover canned chipotles will last up to 3 months in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
