You might try using almond milk or coconut milk as a base instead of cow's milk. They are also milk like products but they do not contain the lactose that upsets stomachs and digestion.

Sounds yummy to me too. My tummy doesn't like the milk but sometimes when I know I'm not going anywhere, I indulge in a creamed soup. LOL

I giggled at the untrained clams…made my day and the typo I made earlier a little easier to live with…LOL

NEVER bring clams to a boil!! Add them after you remove from the heat and let them heat through. Otherwise you will have yucky, chewy, nasty clams.

I would like to try this recipe but I can only find TRAINED clams. does anyone have any extra "untrained" clams? (look at the ingredient list)

The rule of thumb for figuring calories is:

9 calories for every 1 gr. of fat
4 calories for every 1 gr. protein
4 calories for every 1 gr. carbs
7 calories for every 1 gr. alcohol

my calculation based on this info is 224 calories per serving

Sorry, I am diabetic and perhaps my problem is unique…easy to digest carbs such as POTATOES give me diarrhea.
So at least in my book this is NOT a diabetic friendly recipe.

This recipe sounds good. Many of us are watching our weight so it would be good to have the calories for a serving.
