Servings 2 People


  • 1/2 cup Amaranth
  • 1 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • Coconut Sugar or Maple Syrup (I prefer coconut sugar because it tastes carmely)
  • 1 Sliced Banana
  • 1 Handful Blueberries
  • Any fruit of your choice
  • 1 TBS Coconut Mana (ESSENTIAL)
  • Cacao Nibs
  • Coconut Flakes (Optional)
  • 1/3 cup Milk of your choice (I prefer Cashew Milk)


Making Amaranth

  • Put Amaranth and water in sauce pan
  • Cover with lid
  • Bring to boil
  • Reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes
  • Grains will absorb water and bind together
  • (It should be sticky/look oily: Amaranth releases natural fats giving it this consistency)

Finishing Touches

  • Add milk & sugar
  • Stir until combined (you can always add more milk if you want to loosen up the porridge)
  • Top with fruit, nuts/seeds
  • Drizzle coconut butter ALL OVER
