Hi everyone, this is my creamy warming millet seed porridge. Millet seed has so much going for it, it's full of vitamins, minerals and fibre for a start. It is an alkaline food, the magnesium in it improves insulin sensitivity to help prevent diabetes, high in calcium, totally gluten free and low calorie too !
100 grams millet seed soaked overnight in 1 pint water, half a pint of creamy almond milk, 3 grams of coconut cream, handful of raisins if liked.
Boil/simmer the millet in the soaking water with everything else for an hour, I often leave it longer and add more almond milk as the porridge thickens, millet absorbs an enormous amount of liquid. More flavour can be added by half a teaspoon of ground cloves or allspice and cinnamon. I like it without any sugar, the coconut and raisins give sweetness, it's just so warm and nourishing on a cold morning.. try it.
