Ingredients in Healthy Creamed Corn

Each ear of corn will yield about 1 cup of corn kernels. So if you prefer to make this recipe with frozen corn, you will need 5 cups of corn.

This won’t change the flavor too much, but you will likely want to add in the sugar as you won’t have all the sweet corn “milk” in the recipe.

Low Calorie Creamed Corn Recipe

This low calorie creamy corn recipe is easy and delicious! To make sure it tasted like the full fat version, I did leave a tiny bit of butter in the recipe. This is just for flavor and if you prefer you can swap it out for olive oil.

Some people like sweetened creamed corn, and some don't. Not to mention depending on the corn you get, it is often very sweet on its own. So I made the sugar optional.
Special Tip: Adding 2 teaspoons only raises the calories per serving up to 67 calories. So feel free to add it in!
