2017 wild rice recipe contest finalist

    2 cups cooked wild rice
    1 cup coconut milk
    ½ cup pure maple syrup
    2 tbsp canola spread
    1 tub (8 oz) Crystal Farms® Blueberry Cream Cheese Spread, at room temperature
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    ¼ tsp nutmeg
    1½ cups fresh blueberries, divided
    2 cups sweetened whipped cream
    4 fresh spearmint leaves

In large saucepan, combine wild rice, coconut milk, maple syrup, and canola spread. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly; reduce heat. Simmer 15-20 minutes until wild rice absorbs liquid; stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in cream cheese, vanilla, and nutmeg; cool completely. In four clear, small custard cups, layer wild rice mixture, 1 cup blueberries, and whipped cream. Garnish with remaining blueberries and mint leaves.
