Creamy Millet Porridge

Our friend Kelly Gibney recently grabbed some ingredients from GoodFor and created this amazing Millet Porridge which is very special, especially coming into the cooler months! Kelly is a total superstar when it comes to food, so go check out her blog and social page @kellygibney_wholehearted. She too uses jars as storage in her pantry! Kelly takes it from here…

Millet is one of my favourite grains. It has a gorgeously fluffy texture, is naturally gluten free, takes on flavours really beautifully and can happily work with both savoury and sweet recipes. If you’ve never given it a go, I’d encourage you to grab some and use it as a replacement for rice in your favourite recipe – you’ll be hooked.


Serves 2

1 1/2 cups cooked millet

2  cups coconut milk

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp coconut sugar or light muscovado sugar

1 pear, grated


Place the millet, coconut milk, nutmeg and vanilla into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.

Immediately reduce to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes, stirring very regularly until the texture is creamy.

Add the grated pear and cook for a further minute.

Serve immediately with a drizzle of coconut cream or organic dairy cream.

Top with berries or whatever takes your fancy! xo
