This delicious lightened up clam chowder recipe is loaded with clams, potatoes, and made with absolutely no cream! A healthier version of your favorite hearty chowder made a little lighter and healthier than most traditional versions with a few simple tweaks.
Traditional New England style clam chowder is made with at least a cup or two of heavy cream – not this version. This recipe only uses a lightened up milk base and gets its rich texture by pureeing half of the potatoes and broth in the blender to give a thick and creamy consistency without the need for any cream. The result is a chowder that is super cozy and just as flavorful as ever.
Everything cooks in one pot, including the bacon, making this the perfect weeknight or anytime meal.
