80--- Cornmeal Grits with Blueberries

Grits are a cereal made from coarsely ground corn.  They are typically made with savory flavors in mind, but since corn is naturally a sweet grain (high fructose corn syrup come to mind?) I thought it would make a nice substitute for a wheat or rice hot cereal.  

This is a quick breakfast that won't leave you sweating over the stove all morning.  Enjoy!

Cornmeal Grits with Blueberries
Serves 2

1/2 cup coarsely ground cornmeal
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 cup water
1 Tbsp honey
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries (they hold up better than frozen)

Bring almond milk and water to a simmer over medium high heat.  Whisk in cornmeal and continue to stir until well combined.  Reduce heat to medium low and stir every 3 minutes until thickened, or ~15-20 minutes.  Whisk in honey.

Spoon portions into serving bowls, then garnish with 3/4 cup fresh blueberries.
