  • In a small pot, add all ingredients and bring to a soft boil
  • Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring often making sure the milk does not boil over.

It's ready when it reaches the consistency of runny pudding.
If the consistency is too dense, just add a little more milk until it gets more liquidy.
