    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Alexis Sims with the American Heart Association shares a heart healthy recipe you can use this hoilday season.

     Creamed Corn
    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

    Cooking Instructions
    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.
