Bring milk to a gentle boil in a medium-size saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and add polenta in a steady stream. Whisk until well blended. Cook for 3 minutes or until thickened and smooth. Whisk in butter until it is melted and polenta has a creamy consistency.
Remove saucepan from heat and stir in half of berries, yogurt, honey, vanilla and cinnamon. Sprinkle remaining berries over each serving; serve immediately.
