Make Your Own Cream Soups

This is so easy to make, and if you have the mix already to go it only takes a few minutes to make. You will never have to worry about not having cream soup for your recipes plus you will know just what is in it.

Homemade cream soup

2 cups instant non fat dry milk powder
1 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup instant low sodium chicken bouillon granules
2 Tbsp. dried onion flakes or powder
1/2 tsp. pepper

Combine all ingredients and store in airtight container.
To substitute for one can of soup, combine 1/3 cup of the mix and 1-1/4 cups cold water. Whisk well, and cook and stir over medium heat until thickened. Add to casseroles as you would the canned product. I also make it with Beef bouillon granules as I cook more with beef then with chicken

Mushroom soup: Add ½ cup finely chopped or dried mushrooms
Celery soup: Add ½ cup minced celery or dehydrated
Chicken soup add ½ cup diced chicken or dehydrated
or you can add any think you would like or use as is.

Start with 2 cups powder milk

Add 1 cup Corn Starch

Add 1/4 cup Chicken Bouillon granules

2 Tbs dried onion flakes or powder

1/2 tea. Pepper

Mix Well

Store in a airtight container

To Use
Add 1/3 cup of mix to 11/4 cups cold water.

miw well and put over a medium heat.

Heat and stir until it starts to thicken

Bring to a slow boil until thick

It is kind of hard to see but it is thickened  take off heat and use as you would canned cream soup.

Now that you can make your own it is one less thing to take up room in your storage and pantry.


  1. Wish you had a "pin it" button so I could save this recipe. It looks very useful.

    1. Nana,
      I am still trying to figure out pintrest. Will work on it a little harder and try to get it done.

  2. I have been using a version of this recipe for a long time "Cream of Stuff" Instead of using granules.. I leave them out and then when I am mixing it up I add a bullion cube or beef/chicken base as needed. I found that the granules were significantly more expensive around here.

    1. Kkezir,
      That is such a good idea,I like the the beef and chicken base I use to cook with a lot better then the granules.

  3. I just commented on your family clothing post. I found you again with this posting from the Titus 2 Tuesday and loved it also. I love your ideas and am now following. Thanks for your ideas.....keep em' comin'!

    1. Writer Mom,
