I received free samples of Libby’s Fruits & Vegetables mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Libby’s Fruits & Vegetables and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

Before developing lactose intolerance, I would literally eat creamed corn as an after school snack. I was obsessed! If you’ve ever enjoyed creamed corn, you know how unhealthy some can be. That is far from the case with this recipe–dare I say this is healthy? We’ll agree on healthyish! 

Libby’s Fruits & Vegetables provide an easy, convenient and wholesome way to deliver nutritious, delicious meals. You don’t have to compromise on quality time with your family versus a healthy and hearty meal.

Dairy Free Sweet Creamed Corn

Traditionally creamed corn is made with heavy cream or whole milk. Lucky for us lactose intolerant or vegan, this past year multiple brands have rolled out truly great tasting lactose-free and nondairy milk. Choose your favorite and let’s get to cooking this classic side-dish.

Fun fact: Did you know that lactose-free milk was listed on Google’s 2016 Food Trends? You know me, always on trend… Just kidding! But really, how cool that tolerable milk and cheese are on the rise–making it easier than ever for us to cook our favorite recipes.

Vegan Creamed Corn
Serves: 4

1 can Libby’s Whole Kernel Sweet Corn
1 cup unsweetened lactose-free milk (I prefer soymilk)
1/2 small shallot, diced
2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vegan butter
2 teaspoons flour
Pepper, chili powder, cayenne, to taste


1. In a skillet, saute shallot in cooking oil until translucent.

2. Drain the sweet corn and transfer half into a food processor. Pulse until just smooth. Reserve for later.

3. Add the remaining sweet corn to skillet with shallot and caramelize over medium heat for 5-10 minutes.

4. Once caramelized, add in lactose-free milk, salt, and sugar. Bring to a simmer and heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

5. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over low heat melt the vegan butter. Stir in flour, forming a roux.

6. Pour the roux and reserved pureed corn into the skillet. Mix everything together, stirring frequently.  Turn up the heat to thicken the mixture.

7. Sprinkle with pepper, chili powder, and cayenne.

Serve and enjoy!

  1. Ahhh this looks so good!!! The worst part about become lactose intolerant was losing so many of my favorites foods, this was one of them, so I am SO EXCITED to try this!

  2. So glad I found your blog! I’ve been looking into the vegan lifestyle for a while. I feel like it’s what I’m supposed to do, but it’s hard with a family that absolutely won’t follow the same guidelines. Right now I’m settling for small swaps to be more ethical in my eating habits, and this looks DELICIOUS!

    1. I’m so glad you found my blog, too! I’m dairy-free & egg-free but often cook plant-based meals. My husband loves meat, so I’ve found that if we do 2-3+ meals a week that are veggie focused he doesn’t mind. I’ve also been looking into vegan makeup, skincare, etc. and plan to do a post over that soon 🙂

  3. All I have to say is YES to all things vegan! I’m lactose intolerant and try to avoid it as much as i can but sometimes I can’t and end up so sick. I love cream of corn – so this is a great recipe!
