Thickening Soups Without Gluten or Dairy

I have discovered that fat free coffee creamer is gluten and lactose free. I use coffee creamer as a substitute for cream or milk in my chowders and any soups calling for dairy. Cook a little extra potato, puree them in the blender and add the puree with the creamer to thicken your soup. No flour needed.
