This recipe is for all millet lovers out there
If you like the taste of millet, this Almond Millet Porridge is for you. Thinking of porridge, most people have oatmeal in their mind. But there are a lot of other option to prepare porridge than with oatmeal. You can use rice flakes, polenta, or millet flakes. This Millet Porridge has quite a lovely color, and it’s very creamy. When I made it lately, my son claimed to test it, and he said “This is awesome! You are going to make it”. How sweet is this?
He also said things like “It’s spicy” and “It smells like pizza.” So I am not sure about his reliability as a porridge tester. But he’s not on drugs, I swear. He only has a rich imagination! Though the pan I used for roasting my almonds was used for something spicy lately. But it was not pizza, and I didn’t taste it at all!!
Acai is one of the superfoods that made it to my kitchen. Primarily because of it’s deep color, to be honest. But actually, I like the taste too. Acai berries are growing high up in trees native to the Amazonas. They
- are extraordinarily high in Anthocyanins, which might help to reduce oxidative stress and to prevent cancer
- increase blood flow and might help to prevent coronary artery diseases and heart attacks
- are high in vitamin A, C, and E and might help to improve immune function
Beet powder is super healthy too because it’s rich in nitrates, a compound that helps to dilate blood vessels and
- prevents high blood pressure
- increases blood flow to your brain
- boosts your endurance Performance.
So what are you waiting for? C’mon, let’s prepare this Almond Porridge together!
