  • 1 cup millet
  • 3 cups rice milk or your fave plant-based milk
  • 1 tablespoon date sugar or maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 grated tonka bean or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch nutmeg

  • Rinse the millet, then place in a small pot with the milk, sugar, spices and salt. Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 10-15 minutes or until the millet is done. Stir in the cashew butter and a little extra milk if needed to make it creamy. Serve with your fave toppings.


This makes breakfast for 2 hungry people or 3-4 less hungry ones. I'm always hungry, so I definitely eat half of this topped with plenty of grain free granola!
