Heavy Cream Substitutes

Looking for a dairy-free alternative? Try using coconut cream or a fuller fat non-dairy milk, such as oat milk. Keep in mind, the flavor and consistency of the soup may be slightly different with these substitutes.

Looking for a lighter option? Half-and-half (a combination of half whole milk and half heavy cream) or whole milk can be used instead of heavy cream.

Ultimately, the best option will depend on your dietary restrictions and personal preferences. Feel free to experiment and find the substitution that works best for you!
