1/4cup cornstarch
1/4teaspoon salt
2cups 2% reduced-fat milk or plain soymilk
1/2cup agave nectar or honey
2teaspoons vanilla extract

  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour into individual serving dishes and chill.
