Whether you are someone in your family is avoiding dairy, here is the very best Dairy-Free Gravy recipe to make for the holidays. This recipe is rich, creamy, savory, and filled with flavor. You’ll be making it over and over again.

  • Total Time: 12 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 2 cups chicken or turkey bone broth, warmed
  • 2 tablespoons chicken or turkey drippings
  • 2 tablespoons refined coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh sage (optional)
  • 1/4 cup full-fat, unsweetened canned coconut milk


  1. Heat your coconut oil and chicken or turkey drippings in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
  2. Once the coconut oil is melted, whisk the arrowroot powder in until it’s smooth. It will become a rich, golden color.
  3. Add the warmed bone broth slowly to the mixture as you whisk continuously.
  4. Keep whisking. Even if it’s clumpy, it will become smooth!
  5. Keep cooking and whisking for around 8 to 10 minutes until you reach your desired thickness.
  6. Stir in the salt, pepper, sage (optional), and coconut milk.
  7. Serve, and enjoy.


  • This recipe yields about 2 cups of gravy, or enough for 6-8 servings.
  • Store leftover gravy in the refrigerator for up to four days, or freeze it for up to three months.
  • For best results, reheat the gravy on the stove as you whisk it. Add a little water if it’s too thick.
  • Double or even triple this recipe if you’re feeding a crowd.
  • Vegan option: substitute the chicken or turkey bone broth with vegetable broth, bouillon cubes, or granules, and use more coconut oil instead of the drippings.
