This simple and fast breakfast porridge with millet and orange is such a morning treat. Fresh, full, creamy and satiating at the same time!


  • 1/2 cup millet, rinsed and drained
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (other milks will also work such as coconut milk or cashew milk)
  • a few slices of orange
  • toasted pistachios as a topping
  • dash of vanilla
  • half a teaspoon of coconut oil
  • dash of cinnamon
  • a natural sweetener to sweeten such a date paste or maple syrup
  • dried figs
  • toasted almonds or walnuts
  • pumpkin seeds, toasted walnuts
  • cacao nibs
  • goji berries
  • almond butter
  • fresh fruit


  1. If you have time soak the millet for a few hours or overnight. Rinse the millet. Place millet in a saucepan on low heat. Toast lightly until dry and a bit darker. The roasting is also optional. When you are in a rush, you can only rinse the millet. Add water to millet. Cook for approximately 15 minutes until the grain has doubled in size/puffed up.
  2. Reduce heat to low, add milk and simmer for a few minutes until all is heated through. Then pour in a blender and add the orange slices and vanilla. Blend until smooth. Pour in a bowl and top with the toppings that you like.


Millet normally gets very easily dry and hard, but this recipe helps to keep the millet moist–even for leftovers a few days later.

You can keep leftovers in the fridge for up to three days. When you’re ready to reheat, add a little more milk.
