This luscious corn chowder has a pleasingly rich, sweet, fresh corn taste that doesn’t require fresh corn OR heavy whipping cream!
Luscious corn chowder is a recipe shared by my dear friend Iris O’Brien. A recipe developer and chef, Iris is a genius at creating outstanding soups and sauces.
This luscious corn chowder tastes like it took forever to make from fresh corn, but it didn’t. It is super easy to make from frozen corn, so it can be enjoyed any time of year. Even better, the usual heavy whipping cream is replaced with a much healthier ingredient~coconut milk.
This corn chowder would be an easy and delicious soup course to serve guests for a four or five course meal. Garnish it with crisp applewood smoked bacon and sharp cheddar, and it will be a show stopper. For more on this luscious corn chowder, Iris shares her insights below.

This corn chowder has all the traditional elements of a fresh corn chowder made from corn cut right off the stalk. I love using frozen corn, as it most closely emulates fresh. The frozen method has a high standard which preserves that “right off the stalk” corn taste without losing the sweet flavor that is unique to freshly picked corn. I prefer white corn to yellow because it seems sweeter, creamier, and more flavorful.
Coconut milk, rather than heavy cream, is the perfect pairing with white corn. It compliments the buttery flavor and sweetness of the corn while adding myriad health benefits found in coconut milk. One taste and this will quickly win you over as the best corn chowder you’ve ever tasted. Enjoy!
