Healthy Hollywood: Fab Food Friday – Claire Danes' Date Night Treat!

Posted:

"Homeland" star Claire Danes and her husband, actor Hugh Dancy, are the proud new parents of a baby boy, but that doesn't mean they can't enjoy a date night! In fact, it's super important for parents to spend time together just the two of them.

Claire and her husband were spotted having dinner at the trendy Asian-inspired New York City eatery, Pounds & Ounces. Chef Ted Cippollone recently added smoothies & juices to his lunchtime menu. Smoothies are the perfect on- the go nutritious power source for busy New Yorkers.

"Smoothies besides being one of the healthiest drinks you can have, because of the natural sugar and protein; also make a great meal replacement if you're looking for a quick bite, but don't really have time to sit and have a meal. It's also a refreshing way to stay hydrated during those really hot summer months," reveals Chef Cippollone.

To ensure Pounds & Ounces' smoothies are a star attraction, Chef Chippollone developed a few tricks. "Whichever juice you decide to use be sure to have it as cold as possible. I just pour the juice in a cup full of ice and then pour the juice without the ice into the blender. Second, I add plain or flavored yogurt, it adds an additional sweetness to the smoothie and gives it that velvety texture." Chef Cippollone shares with Healthy Hollywood.
