I am always looking for good cream of wheat recipes to try. On its own, it’s pretty bland. Even just adding milk instead of water and a little cinnamon and sugar (or Splenda, stevia, etc.) will take it to a new level. But what if you want to be even more creative with your breakfast cereal? Then you’re in luck!
It’s funny, I was on a cream of wheat kick and on a whim, I decided to post three recipes that I’d thrown together. It has become one of the more popular posts on my blog for the past three years and counting. That’s when I realized that people really want to know if there is a way to make it tastier.
The answer is yes!

EVEN MORE WAYS TO MAKE CREAM OF WHEAT
Even if you don’t have all of these ingredients on hand and you’re looking for something to make today, my advice to making delicious cream of wheat is to start with milk instead of water. What does water taste like? Nothing. So what will your cream of wheat taste like? That’s right. Nothing.
A few ideas of what to put in cream of wheat to up the flavor are cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar (or Splenda, stevia, etc), maple syrup, and honey. To that, add some fresh, frozen, or dried fruit while it’s cooking. I also like to add vanilla to every batch and have also played with other extracts like lemon and almond.
Go ahead. Get creative!
