Fruity millet

Millet is highly underrated. It's amazing. It's versatile. It tastes absolutely amazing. In short, this may be the best breakfast in the world. I LOVE it.

... would make a great dessert or snack, too. I could eat it any time, to be honest.


This makes 3-4 servings. Add more fruit in the bowl to make more servings!


1 cup millet (total calories: 750)
2+ cups water

1+ cup unsweetened soy milk (total calories: 70)
1/4 c sugar
1 t cinnamon
1 banana, split into two bowls (total calories: ~100)
raisins (calories per 1/4 cup: 130)
cranberries (unsweetened, calories per 1/2 cup: 136)
currants (calories per 1 cup: 63)
optional: or your other favorite dried fruit


Bring your 2 cups water to boil. Add millet, cover and simmer. You want most of the water to soak into the millet and for it to remain a little crunchy. Everything I've read online says it should take 25-35 or more minutes.. but for me, it took only about 18 minutes. Weird.

But, that's when you add the soy milk, sugar, cinnamon and dried fruit of choice.

In a bowl, I sliced the banana. Now, once the soy milk millet mixture has re-heated.. it's done! Pour over fruit. Keep it soupy. It's way better. :)
