Easy Chocolate Soup Dairy-Free

Why not kick off soup season on a sweet note with this chocolate soup?!

I love this chocolate soup (and hope you do too) because:

  • It is simply scrumptious,
  • It is velvety smooth,
  • It is dairy-free (so gut-friendly for us lactose intolerant folks),
  • Did I mention it is decadently delicious?
  • And, it’s made with only 6 ingredients and a garnish of your choice!

What are the ingredients needed to make this chocolate soup?

You will need the following 6 ingredients and any garnish of your choice, I used rose petals (I had leftover after making this pistachio rose cake) and some shaved chocolate:

  1. Silk Unsweetened Almond milk
  2. Good quality semi-sweet chocolate bar
  3. Pure Vanilla Extract
  4. Arrowroot powder
  5. 1 egg yolk
  6. Salt

Many moons ago, when my daughter and I used to visit my sister in New York, she would always take us to her favorite bakery in Brooklyn.

At this bakery, our standing order was a slice of their one-of-a-kind pistachio cake and an iced or hot coffee. On one of our trips there, I noticed another diner have a bowl of what looked like chocolate soup being placed in front of her. Y’all – a WHOLE BOWL of C.H.O.C.O.L.A.T.E. soup!

For this chocolate addict lover, ALL that spoonable chocolate goodness had me swooning!

Dairy Free Chocolate Soup

When I inquired about it, I was crestfallen to learn that it was chock-full of dairy. Being as lactose intolerant as I am, I felt it would behoove me to refrain from it (duh -right?!).

Of course, that didn’t stop me from dreaming about that chocolate soup. Over the years, I’ve tried making my own version of it, one of which I even shared here.

But, I always ended up relying on heavy cream and cornstarch to give it that thick, creamy, consistency – and that was one chocolate soup I couldn’t indulge in often. And, when I did, I had to stop after a few spoonfuls.

Then recently I came across an article in which someone had used egg yolks to thicken the chocolate soup. Now, heavy cream was still one of the listed ingredients, and the egg yolks used were to reduce the amount of cornstarch used, but it got me thinking.

What if I used one of my favorite dairy substitutes: Silk Unsweetened Almond milk + egg yolks + arrowroot powder to come up with a healthier, thicker, version that:

1) didn’t leave me with all the side effects of dairy consumption, and
2) one that wouldn’t leave me weighed down.

Silk All Natural Unsweetened Almond Milk

Sometimes, making healthy choices is hard, but feeling healthier doesn’t have to be – right?! I’ve tried to take a “Less Dairy-More Plants” stance, by stocking up on Silk Unsweetened Almond milk and Silk Vanilla Almond Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative at my local Walmart store.

I find it hard to be 100% dairy-free (like when there’s a slice of cheesecake staring me down at a friend’s house) but Silk fights the notion that “extreme” is the only path to being healthier as small victories are still victories!

Looking for more ways how you, too, can take a “Less Dairy-More Plants” stance with Silk? Then, check out Silk’s social hub as well as its Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Youtube channels. Then head on over to Walmart to stock up on your favorite Silk products!

This Chocolate Soup…

Getting back to this Dairy Free Chocolate Soup, as I mentioned before, it’s made of:
Silk Unsweetened Almond milk + egg yolk + arrowroot powder, and it also has some vanilla extract for flavor AND smell!

It is so easy to make…

I broke up good quality, semi-sweet baking chocolate bar and used the chunks in this soup too. But, feel free to use milk chocolate or bittersweet chocolate, or white chocolate, if you prefer to do so.

Hey, in fact, you could use all three and swirl them around for a tri-chocolate soup! Oooh!

How to serve this chocolate soup…

This chocolate soup is good at room temperature, as it’s just too runny warm.

Also, when it’s warm, the whipped cream kinda melts right into it. But, if you get a chance to chill this soup for about an hour, it is definitely better than “good”.

In my daughter’s words, this Chocolate Soup served chilled is “darn decadent”!

  • 1 1/4 + 1/4 cups Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk
  • 1 1/4 cups good quality semi sweet chocolate bar broken up
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 3 tsp arrowroot powder
  • 1 egg yolk separated
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • rose petals for garnish
  • shaved chocolate for garnish
  • coconut whipped creamy dairy free topping or yogurt , to top the chocolate soup with


  • Add the 1 1/4 cup of Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk to a pan over medium heat and bring it to a slight simmer (make sure it’s not boiling). 
  • While waiting on the mixture to come to that simmering point, take the remaining 1/4 cup of Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk and mix it well with the arrowroot powder. 
  • When the Silk Unsweetened Almondmilk begins to simmer, add in the chocolate and stir vigorously till chocolate melts. Then add in the arrowroot mixture and stir well. Then remove from the heat.
  • Now, whisk the egg yolk in another bowl, and as you do so, very, very slowly, trickle in about a half cup of the chocolate soup mixture.  This way the egg yolk is slowly tempered with the hot chocolate soup so it doesn’t cook and congeal.
  • Then, vigorously mix the hot chocolate + egg yolk mixture in the bowl into the rest of the chocolate soup in the pan. Add in the salt and vanilla extract and stir. Then, pour soup into two bowls and let cool.
  • This dairy free chocolate soup can be enjoyed at room temperature – though it’s best served after it has chilled for about an hour in the fridge. Spoon on some non-dairy topping or coconut whipped cream and garnish with rose petals, shaved chocolate or nuts and enjoy!

  2. I have never tried chocolate soup before, but it looks like such an easy and elegant treat! Making it this week!

  3. Oh man, chocolate soup! We totally came across this at a dessert restaurant (yes, a restaurant that only sold dessert) when we were on vacation in Montreal a couple years ago. Such a fun concept! And I love that you put a twist on this one to make it dairy-free. I can absolutely imagine sitting down to a bowl of this soup, oh, right about now! And I can also imagine Lil Shashi saying “darn decadent.” Haha! Great post, Shashi, and I hope you have a happy Monday ahead, my friend! 🙂

  4. I have never had chocolate soup before but would never turn down a bowl. I love the idea of garnishing it with sweet toppings. This is the best soup I’ve seen in ages. Delish!

  5. I have never heard of chocolate soup before so clearly I’ve been living under a rock! What a genius idea, especially for a chocolate lover like myself! I love the way you styled this too, Shashi! So pretty. This would be yummy for a weekend treat or even for Valentine’s Day….or a random Monday 😉 Have a wonderful week! XOXO

  6. CHOCOLATE SOUP???? Gah…. Love it. in fact, one of my fave shops in Charlotte that I used to frequent often when Jon was in seminary at RTS was get this…. Chocolate Soup! That was the name of the shop. And all kind of fun little kids clothes… and they even had adorable boy clothes which are VERY hard to find, FYI. Lots of cute little girl clothes on the market, not so much for little boys. So hearing about your chocolate soup brought back all kinds of great memories. I love what you did with this chocolate soup with the almond milk – your gray cells are working overtime. I just bought a couple 1/2 gallons of Silk about an hour ago, def. gonna try. Almond milk is all Hudson will drink, maybe he will try the chocolate soup. Hope springs eternal. Oh I hope so, because I can count on two hands the foods he will eat. Food issues are a big time autism trait. It would be a good excuse to make it often if he’ll eat it. Thanks for the great recipe! XOXO

  7. I wasn’t sure whether you ate chocolate soup hot or cold Shashi, but you mention popping it into the fridge to chill before consuming so now I understand. Looks delicious, and my thoughts tell me IT IS delicious! Thanks for putting together this dairy free chocolate soup version. I know this will be popular!

  8. It would be much more helpful I you gave the weight of the chocolate to be used than the measurement in cups. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Hi Marguie – thanks for stopping by! I do apologize for not using the weight measurements – I broke up roughly a bar and a half (approx) of chocolate and used that to measure up a cup and a half.

    1. Hi Sally – thanks so much for stopping by! Actually, the first time I made this chocolate soup, I made it without egg yolks – the exact same ingredients minus the egg yolks. It wasn’t as thick or rich-tasting as the version with egg yolks, but it was still good enough that my daughter slurped it out of her bowl without a spoon! GAH – I need to teach her better table manners! 🙂 I sure hope you enjoy this!
