Ingredients


4 ears of corn, kernels cut from the cob

1/3 cup fat free half & half

2/3 cup coconut water

1 tsp. Splenda

1/4 tsp. salt

1 Tbsp. lime juice

1/2 tsp. corn starch

1/2 tsp. white wheat flour

Optional

2 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper


This tropical flavored creamed corn has traditional creamed corn beat in both taste and nutrition.

1. For fresh corn on the cob, start by removing the husk (the leaves). Dust off as many of the left over silks as possible by hand. Use a brush to remove the rest.

2. Rinse off the cob, then stand it on its stem end in a bowl. Slice off the kernels with a thin-bladed knife.

3. Combine the corn kernels, half & half, coconut water, Splenda and salt in a medium saucepan. Bring it to a boil, then lower the heat just enough so it keeps at an active simmer. Keep stirring occasionally until much of the liquid has evaporated, about 15-20 minutes. Stir in the lime juice, corn starch and white wheat flour until it gets creamy.

4. Divide into four servings. Set out the cilantro and crushed red pepper so each person can stir them in if they choose.
