I have just started on a no gluten diet due to wheat allergies. I have also stopped using dairy milk products. I used almond milk instead of the dairy milk. This is a homey breakfast. Warm and creamy, just the right amount of sweetness. I have also used white corn grits instead of the corn meal. You do need to cook the grits a little longer, but still very tasty. I have also used a banana and honey greek yogurt with the orange zest. Was still very tasty.
