I would probably use fat free evaporated milk and add a teaspoon or two of corn starch and mix very well before heating to give it a thicker and creamier texture.

light coconut milk works great! depending on the type of soup, you can shred veggies and stir in to thicken it. I use no dairy at all in my potato soup. I shred one potato in the food processor and add to the soup. It thickens it almost to a chowder with only taters, water, onions, and mushrooms :)

I'll sometimes use fat free half and half.

It really depends on the recipe. Some things will do just fine with regular milk (I usually use 2% if the recipe called for something with that much fat) but others will just never be quite right without the mouth feel of the cream. I'd try playing around with it. :)

I found a soup recipe I would like to try, but it calls for 1 cup of heavy whipping cream, and that has too many calories. Anyone know of any substitutes?
