Creamy and dairy-free soup
Dairy-Free Creamy Avocado Soup
I swear it tastes better than it sounds — it’s not like a green-eggs-and-ham kind of thing. So let’s make some soup, shall we?
The super-ripe avocados make it extra creamy and it’s best topped with a few diced chives and possibly another dollop of yogurt. Trust me, the name "creamy" rings true here, as the dairy-free yogurt adds a smooth, rich touch.

20 Best Dairy-Free Soup Recipes
A hot bowl of soup is the ultimate comfort food and at the Academy of Culinary Nutrition we always turn to the plant-based, dairy-free soup recipes. They’re not only delicious, but kicking it dairy-free means we won’t have to suffer from bloating, gas, allergies or any other digestive or immune issues that dairy may cause.
It’s even possible to have rich, creamy and luxurious soups without dairy by blending in cashews, sunflower seeds, nut butter, avocado, cooked cauliflower, plant-based milks, or even tofu. In fact, the entire Culinary Nutrition Expert Program is completely dairy-free, from the course recipes to the written assignments!
So without further ado, we present our 20 Best Dairy-Free Soup recipes. Let the slurping commence.

Pea soup recipe ingredients
You just need a few simple, fresh (or frozne/canned) ingredients to make this cold soup recipe. Actually, you can enjoy the soup warm as well, but I prefer it chilled. Here’s what you’ll need:
- PEAS – Frozen or fresh peas both work just fine. In addition to their bright green color, they also bring along some powerful nutrients.
This ingredient is fat free and low in calories, so they’re great for snacking. I like to use them to make Warm Mediterranean Spinach Artichoke Hummus Dip. Just like peas, artichokes are also a good source of fiber and folate.
Best known for its delicious taste and creamy texture, avocados are a great source of healthy omega 3 fats. They’re fantastic to use in everything from avocado toast to guacamole, and even desserts like chocolate avocado mousse.
Yogurt is high in protein and full of vitamins and minerals. Depending on the strain of bacteria, yogurt may also contain probiotics. If you are dairy intolerant, you can use coconut cream or coconut yogurt. In traditional cuisines, thick coconut milk/cream is used in desserts and thick sauces. It’s high in fat but this fat is mainly from MCT, which is great for the metabolism!
Peas, avocado, and artichoke hearts?? Sounds good together, but what makes this combo special?
The importance of combining these fiber filled foods together into a creamy pea soup is that they are all PREBIOTICS.
Prebiotics – FIBER rich carbohydrates/sugars that nourish good bacteria to help it to grow. This “feeding” action helps build a healthy microbiome in your gut. As a result, it can help BOOST your immune system, protecting the gut against unwanted toxins from food or the environment.
Remember all that talk about resistant starches? Yes, those are prebiotics!
Prebiotics are fermented (when digested) into short-chain fatty acids, which can then supply energy (fuel) for the cells that line your gut wall.
So in a sense, this fiber rich food is fueling more food to keep our digestive system healthy and nourished. See, food is medicine. Spring produce such as green peas, avocado, and artichokes are some of the best nutrient dense sources of prebiotic fiber.
And the fact that this soup recipe is first cooked then cooled increases the resistant starch (from the prebiotic fiber veggies). Plus, it’s just a healthy and delicious addition to your diet. But we all know that, right?
Chilled Cucumber Avocado Soup
My summer eating preferences are definitely in full swing, which is why I’m so excited to share this chilled vegan cucumber avocado soup recipe!
It’s supposed to be hot this week and I’m not complaining, in part because I have a giant bowl of chilled cucumber avocado soup sitting in my fridge waiting to be devoured. Oh, and a couple of containers of chocolate ice cream in my freezer. Like I said, my cravings for summery foods are in full force!
This vegan cucumber avocado soup is pretty fantastic, if I do say so myself. It’s insanely simple—cucumbers, avocado, lime juice, and water. You can have some fun with add-ins like cilantro and chopped tomatoes, or even add a little fresh salsa or corn on top just before serving.
Creamy Avocado Dip (Vegan, Dairy Free).
Our family loves Mexican food. It is a comfort food, at least for me! Warm, spicy, melty, creamy, crispy, I’d say that falls into the comfort food category.
Tacos, quesadillas, nachos…you name it. When I couldn’t have corn, because of my son’s corn intolerance, I really missed my chips and salsa. I’d still eat guacamole, on pretty much anything, but I did miss crunchy tortilla chips.
Once he could tolerate corn, I was happy to eat tortilla chips again, and especially happy to make this easy avocado dip.
As I said, I love guacamole, and since I knew we were making bean and vegan cheese quesadillas, I thought this recipe for avocado dip would be perfect! I did make some changes to the original recipe so that it would be dairy free.

Did you make this recipe?
Share a photo and tag us — we can’t wait to see what you’ve made!
Do you suggest a small or big can of diced tomatoes?
Thank you! I made this for lunch today while we watched football. It was delicious and super easy.
Hi does this work with an instant pot?
Yes, just toss in everything but the dairy free sour cream and then cook on high for 12 minutes. Add sour cream afterwards.
Is there a good dairy free sour cream you recommend? Tried one brand and was disgusting……
I feel like there ought to be some chopped onion in the recipe – is that what I’m seeing in the soup pic? Mayhaps, it is just a garnish? I can’t imagine making soup without onion, but this is a brave new world….
I didn’t have any onion on hand, hence the minced dried onion in the recipe. Please add fresh onion if you prefer!
(The diced on top was added after a quick run to the store after the soup was made)
Can you please tell me how many people this recipe will serve? I could not see a serving number listed, but maybe I missed it somewhere? Thank you!
I’d say around 4 adults. Double if you have hearty eaters or extra heads at your table!
Do you think you could use coconut milk?
Could you freeze this after making and just reheat?

AFFORDABLE PALEO COOKING WITH YOUR INSTANT POT
Jennifer is a wife and mother of 3 in pursuit of better health for her family.
After being gluten free for 4 years, and having a multitude of chronic health issues, she realized there was still too much processed “food” in her pantry and change was needed. Jennifer began feeding her family more meals from WHOLE foods and less from boxes. Her recipes are predominantly paleo, meaning they are free of grain, gluten, dairy, and refined sugar, but make allowances for a few treats and sweets. She believes food can be medicine when used appropriately and that a few changes now can equate to huge benefits later. Healthy food does not need to be flavorless and void of personality, which she aims to accomplish through her many recipes.
