Coconut Millet Porridge

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Wow – this porridge is surprisingly a family hit! I was shocked when my thirteen year old daughter gobbled it up and wanted more. I think it probably had more to do with the So Delicious coconut yogurt topping (which is is obsessed with), but thank goodness I’m getting some millet into my family because it’s a really nutritious (and often overlooked), little grain. It contains vitamins, minerals and protein, and offers us a welcome break from quinoa!! It is a perfect breakfast for my 30-day Gorgeous For Good program. Getting a handle on these simple, healthy recipes will have you prepared to hit the ground running when you open you book at the beginning of April to start your beauty overhaul. Remember to pre-order my book, so it’ll be delivered to your doorstep as soon as it comes out, and we can all start it together.


Serves 2



Place millet, water, coconut milk, cinnamon stick, salt and xylitol in a heavy bottomed pan and bring to the boil. Down down to a low simmer, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes. Keep in mind that millet takes way longer than quinoa to cook – it may take even longer than 30 minutes, so you need to test it (it is ready when the grains are tender). It also may require a little more water, so keep an eye on it, and stir every few minutes. You can also try making it in a rice cooker.

When ready, spoon into a large bowl, top with copious amount of So Delicious yogurt and fruit.

Tip: You can make this the night before, and heat up (in a pinch use the microwave  – I know, not the best option, but if you are crazy busy it’s okay once in a while), or you can heat up in the pan on the stove top. Unlike oatmeal it doesn’t congeal into a cement-like block. I make this recipe and it lasts for 3 breakfasts.
