Pumpkin Cream Of Wheat

DSC_0067

Cream of wheat reminds me of my childhood.  I was obsessed, and ate it all the time.  My mom would make it for me for breakfast on the weekends, and I would sometimes make it as my after school snack.  I don’t eat it much anymore, but when I do, it’s memories in a bowl!  There is not much protein in cream of wheat, so I would recommend eating this with some egg whites on the side, so you’ll feel satisfied and full until lunch.

what you need:

  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons cream of wheat
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup (optional)

what you do:

  1. In a medium sized sauce pan, stir in almond milk and water.  Once warm, add pumpkin, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and sea salt.
  2. Stir ingredients together until well mixed and bring to almost a boil.
  3. Slowly stir in cream of wheat.  Continue to stir until the cream of wheat thickens (about 4-6 minutes).
  4. Pour into your bowl, stir in maple syrup if you prefer it a little more sweet.
