Honeyed Grits with Marinated Peaches

Warm Cereals


  • 1 cup – thawed frozen or drained canned peaches
  • 4 tablespoons – honey, divided
  • 2 tablespoons – lime or lemon juice
  • 2 cups – low-fat or fat-free milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon – ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup – yellow or white grits
  • 1/2 cup – fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 cup – sliced almonds, toasted


Toss the peaches, 1 tablespoon of the honey, and lime or lemon juice together in a bowl. Let stand while you prepare the grits.

Bring the milk, remaining 3 tablespoons honey, and cinnamon to a boil in a large saucepan. Reduce heat and slowly sprinkle in grits, whisking constantly to prevent lumps, and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes.

To serve, spoon some of the grits into shallow serving bowls and top with some of the marinated peaches, raspberries, and toasted almonds.
