  • 4 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cup cornmeal
  • ½ cup pitted dates chopped


  • In a saucepan over medium-high heat, add water, salt, cornmeal in a saucepan, and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and stir almost constantly (to avoid clumps) for about 10 minutes or until the mixture is thickened to the consistency you like.
  • Remove from heat and serve hot with dates, strawberries, blueberries, plant-based milk, or maple syrup


Instead of water, use coconut water for more flavor
