Healthy New England Clam Chowder Recipe for Bone-Chilling Cold

Blustery winds, 5-8 inches of snowfall and bone-chilling cold encouraged me to make my favorite healthy New England Clam Chowder recipe.  It’s really delicious and hope you like it too.



My New England Clam Chowder



  1. 1 51 oz can ( 3 lbs 3 oz) of Chopped Clams (I also buy NO MSG Added)
  2. 4 Cups of low-sodium Chicken Broth
  3. 1-3 large onions ( I use only 1)
  4. 2-Bay leaves
  5. 1 Cup flour
  6. 6 oz Low-Sodium Smart Balance melted butter
  7. 7 Cups of diced potatoes
  8. 1/2 gallon cold fat-free milk
  9. pepper to season (or your own seasonings of choice)


  • Drain Clams and reserve juice.
  • Combine potatoes, onions, bay leaves and chicken broth. Simmer until potatoes are tender.
  • Remove bay leaves; stir.  Sift flour into reserved melted butter and add to potato mixture. Stir until blended.
  •   Gradually stir in milk slowly, stirring constantly until well blended.  Simmer until thickened.  Combine clams, reserved juice, potatoes, onions, milk mixture, butter and seasoning.  Simmer 5-10 minutes more.  Serve hot.

Enjoy! :)
