Looking for DD creamy soup??

Now that it is finally about to get cold down here in the South, I would love to have a creamy soup recipe for my down days!
I have never really like broth based soups, but love cream based ones!!
Any ideas for a low low low cal soup?

I went and looked at calories 120 for a cup or 240 for the whole can.

That is going to be very difficult!
I think I would rather just eat real, full-fat creamy soups on Up Days!

Nutritional yeast (available online or at health food stores) has a somewhat cheesy/buttery flavor.
It isn't super low-calorie, but has a lot of vitamins and protein that I think make it worth the calories!
I used to use it a lot when making vegan "cream of broccoli" (or asparagus or whatever) soups.
I would also blend up a few potatoes as the "creamy" base.
For lower calories, you could use pureed cauliflower instead.
I also usually added cashew butter for creaminess (almond butter works, too).
Again, it's not very low-calorie but if your other ingredients are, 1 tablespoon (100 calories) will give the soup a lot of flavor/richness--more, I think, than 100 calories of milk or cream.
Mimiccreme is pretty good for soups, but I find using a spoonful of nut butter is more economical than buying almond or nut milks
--with the exception of canned coconut milk, which is delicious in soups!!!

Here's a really simple creamy soup, probably DD friendly if you use "lite" coconut milk:
--sweet potatoes (cook until soft, then puree with a little of the water you boiled them in)
--coconut milk
--Thai Red Curry (to taste) (I get the Thai Kitchen brand)
Nothing else needed! Not even onions!
Although, fresh chopped cilantro makes a nice garnish. and you can add sauteed onions, and/or a little grated fresh ginger, if desired.
But it's really good with just those 3 ingredients!

Do you like clam chowder? I don't have any creamy soup recipes but I do like Progresso Light Clam Chowder that is 100 calories per cup or 200 for the whole can.

I had the V-8 potato soup today and with a smidgen of added salt and pepper it was delicious! 100 calories per serving, 200 for the whole carton. I added 35 calories worth of bacon bits to one serving. Fantastic!

I have a cream of tomato I make with Goya tomato sauce and Calorie Countdown Fat Free Milk that comes to about 95 calories for a giant serving.

It's one can Goya or any tomato sauce that is 15 calories or less 1/4 cup or any sauce that is 60 calories for a cup and 1 cup CC FF milk or even almond or coconut milk that is 35 calories per cup. Add garlic powder, salt, pepper and a tiny bit of sweetener and you got Cream of Tomato Soup!!

I made one yesterday with a broth packet (herb ox sodium free), green salsa and a laughing cow cheese wedge and it was good! Not overly creamy. I imagine if I had used half a cup of almond milk along with the water (17 calories more - so about 70 calories for the cup) it would have been creamier

Dottie, I tried your soup yesterday, but didn't have green salsa so I used red. It didn't get very creamy, but it sure was good! I'm thinking the green salsa must work better...going to get some today. Also, this is really a calorie bargain!

Shirl try heating the salsa and cheese first so it melts better, stir then add the water and packet of broth

Im gonna experiment tomorrow night and make creamy tomato using a can of v8, half a cup almond milk, teaspoon psyllium and a can of geisha shrimp, plus some spices. We will see how that turns out. I think it sounds good. It will be about 180 calories.
