Cream of wheat is a traditional comfort food for many made with healthier ingredients in minutes!

So this quick cereal recipe will help by adding fresh avocado, which is an excellent source of good fat. This makes it a heart healthy meal.
Additional fruit can be added, for example raisins as a natural sweetener or another natural sweetener. It can be a hidden ingredient for the smart cook who knows what the family needs. The is no noticeable change to the flavor and very little evidence of the avocado at all. We use almond milk i the recipe, however other plant milks (see healthy ingredients list) can be used.
