Sweet millet porridge

… another plastic-free breakfast idea

There is nothing more warming on a cold winter day than homemade porridge for breakfast. As I eat it almost everyday, I need some variation from time to time. So this time I just used millet instead. It’s packed with protein, magnesium and vitamin b3. On top of that it’s also gluten-free. Plus: Millet porridge makes it really easy to ditch all sweet, overly packed sweet breakfast cereals. Any more arguments needed?

For two portions use:

1 cup of millet – I literally mean fill up a small cup or mug (available in cardboard packaging at international grocer’s)

2 cups of almond milk or any other plant-based milk (soy milk in re-usable glass bottles is available in some health shops like SuperBioMarkt)

2 small apples

3-4 TS of raisins or other dried fruits (can be bought loose in most health shops like SuperBioMarkt)

2 TS of almonds (buy them loose at the market)

1 1/2 TS of agave juice (Allos sells agave juice in glass jars)

1 tsp of cinnamon (I always buy spices from the Turkish grocer, you can get them in glass jars there)

Bring the almond milk to the boil and stir in the millet. Let everything boil at low heat for 5 minutes. Let everything cool down for another 5-10 minutes and stir in the rest of the ingredients. Et voilà, so much better than sugary cereals!
