Southern style grits are an absolute classic and a real breakfast treat. For a super creamy flavorful lactose-free twist, this version uses our creamy, perfectly sweetened Lactose-Free Vanilla Bean Greek Yogurt (if it's not already, it will soon become a family staple). We topped our grits with blackberries and honey, but we hope you'll enjoy crafting your own creative combos of fresh or frozen berries and jam you already have at home!
