LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Alexis Sims with the American Heart Association shares a heart healthy recipe you can use this hoilday season.
Our take on this classic is subtly flavored and every bit as creamy as the full-fat original.
Serves: 4 serving, ½ cup each
Prep Time: 15 minutes
3 cups fresh corn kernels, divided
3/4 cup low-fat milk
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
Place 2 cups corn, milk, cornstarch and salt in a blender; blend until smooth. Transfer the puree to a medium saucepan, and add the remaining 1 cup corn. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture simmers and thickens and the corn is tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
