Creamy Dairy Free Tomato Soup

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Silk, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Today I am sharing a simple recipe for creamy dairy free tomato soup. Yes, it is possible to get a creamy dairy free tomato soup.

When Silk contacted me about working with them on a dairy and meat free recipe that was perfect for football season, I knew I had to say yes. For the last year or so my daughter has been eating mainly dairy free. I have been working hard on adapting some of our family favorites to be dairy free, so this was just the incentive I needed to work on another dairy free recipe.

I had a hard time deciding on a recipe, but since it is fall and football season I decided on a quick and easy soup.

A warm bowl of soup during the fall and winter is always delicious. I love soup this time of year because it is easy to put in the slow cooker to keep it warm. You can make this soup up ahead of time and put in on low or warm in the slow cooker until you are ready to serve it.

Keeping it warm in the slow cooker works great for things like watching football because everyone can just grab a bowl when they are ready to eat it.

I also love soup because it is a meal all by itself or you can easily add a few side dishes or sandwiches to it. A plate of fruits and veggies, sandwiches, chips or other snack foods would all go well with this tomato soup.

And this dairy free tomato soup is so good that no one will know it is dairy free. It is rich and creamy and delicious! I served it to my whole family and we all loved it.

  1. Yummy!

  2. I love tomato soup and need to be dairy free (am gluten free also). I’m so happy to see I can make it creamy with coconut milk. My question: does it have a slight coconut flavor as a result? That’s the only reason I’ve been hesitant to try it in savory dishes. Will try this for sure! Thanks!

    • In this I don’t think the coconut milk stands out because there is not that much in it. My daughter that doesn’t really like coconut said she could taste it, but she went on to have a second bowl, so she still enjoyed it. I have found with the dairy free products that sometimes I like coconut and sometimes I like soy milk. You can also use a nut milk if you can have nuts. I think in a recipe like this any of those would work. It might change the flavor up some, but I think they all would work. The flavor of a nut milk would probably go well with tomato. I think the balance is using enough to make it creamy, but not too much to change the flavor. I hope that helps.

      • Thanks, Lynn! I have discovered that cashew milk is pretty creamy and doesn’t taste as nutty as almond milk – I may try that too. I love so many of your recipes – some of our favorite GF cookies and brownies are your recipes! :)

        • I’ve made this with unsweetened cashew milk. It is very yummy. My husband sad he could taste the coconut, but not the cashew. I was sick when I made it with coconut, so I wasn’t the best judge of taste :)
