Low Calorie Cream of Wheat

So summer is in full swing at my house!  If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know that I used to teach special education, so this whole working thru the summer thing is new to me!  I keep feeling like I’m on summer break and not keeping up with my blog!

Any ways, enjoy this healthfied version of cream of wheat!


I find myself making cream of wheat quite regularly for my children, and then I eat way too much of it!


So I figured out a why to make it much lower in calories yet still decadent and delicious! Don’t forget the vanilla extract!  It’s key!
