I was recently approached by Clear American and Collective Bias to come up with an original recipe using #ClearAmerican flavored water from Walmart. I love to cook and even more, I love to bake, and even more than that, I love to look at a recipe for guidelines and then throw my own flavah into it.
But this time, I completely came up with a recipe on my own, and then modified an old family recipe for dessert.
The chicken marinade was phenomenal. Honestly. It is extremely healthy and was SO SO delicious. Our grilled chicken was moist and flavorful. BOTH kids (who have teeth) loved it which is saying a lot when it comes to Styles. He doesn’t like ANYTHING.
The cake was good but I expected it to be a little more moist. I think next time I make it (and there WILL be a next time, with different Clear American and toppings), I will use some sour cream in the batter to make it super moist.
Without further ado:
1 cup Clear American Pineapple Coconut Flavored Water
1/2 cup crushed pineapple
2T soy sauce (low sodium)
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup diced red onion
Just throw all of the above ingredients into a food processor or blender
Then Blend for 30 seconds – 1 minute until everything is mixed and well ground.
See how beautiful that is? Now poke holes in your chicken using a fork,
Then if you would like to negate the healthiness of this meal, make this:
3/4 lb butter (3 sticks)
3 cups sugar
3 cups flour
2T extract of your choice (I used 1T vanilla and 1T almond)
3/4 cup Clear American beverage (we used the Pom Blue Acai)
- Preheat oven to 325*
- Cream butter and sugar for 10 minutes (this is not a typo).
- Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition
- Add flour and extract(s), stir until just combined
- Fold in Clear American Beverage
- Bake at 325* for one hour
