Growing up, cream of wheat was on our breakfast table a lot! (It is so much better than cereal with milk). My mom always cooked it with milk and a pinch of sugar and that is how I continued to cook for my kids. But by adding fruit and nuts, it makes it so much more beneficial.
2 cups of milk
2 Tablespoons uncooked cream of wheat
1 teaspoon sugar (or to taste)
1 Tablespoon blueberries
1 Tablespoon pumpkin seeds
1 Tablespoon sliced almonds
On medium-low heat warm up 2 cups of milk. Stir constantly so milk does not run.

Slice 1/2 mango and add to cooked cream of wheat along with 1 Tablespoon blueberries, 1 Tablespoon pumpkin seeds, and 1 Tablespoon sliced almonds. Add fresh mint and enjoy!
