Coconut Millet Porridge

Millet is a small round grain common around Africa. It is rich in antioxidants, may help reduce cholesterol, may help reduce blood sugar levels and fits perfectly into a gluten-free diet.

You can either grind your millet from raw or buy a pre-ground millet mix like we did. The variety of millet we used was red millet.
