Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 1/2 cup Amaranth

  • 1 1/2 cups water

  • 1/2 cup almond milk

  • 2 tablespoons honey (see substitutes)

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • Directions

    Combine water and Amaranth. Bring to a boil then turn heat down and let simmer 20-25 minutes until the water is absorbed. Be watchful at the end of cooking to not burn the seeds. Overcooking turns Amaranth to mush.

    Combine cooked Amaranth, almond milk, honey, and cinnamon. Enjoy!

    Substitutions and Additions

    Agave nectar or brown sugar can be substituted for the honey.

    Substitute your favorite milk for the almond milk (soy milk, coconut milk, regular milk, etc.)

    Add yogurt for a creamier texture.

    Play with the topping, consider adding your favorite fruit instead of the honey and cinnamon.
