Supercharged Cacao Porridge (w fresh Mulberries!)

This delicious porridge is a step up from the plan old fashioned stuff you might be used to! Here I've stepped it up a notch, and incorporated cacao and chia seeds to take it to the next level. Not only that, but I was lucky enough to be able to pick some fresh mulberries off a friend's tree the other day! Summertime means mulberry season, yum! Use your favourite berries in this recipe to create a delicious flavour combination.

This porridge is creamy, satisfying, and great for your gut. Totally gluten-free and paleo, you're sure to have a great start to your day when you kick it off with a bowl of this delicious grub!

What you'll need:

  • 3 Tbsp Connect Foods Chia Seeds
  • 1/2 - 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup Connect Foods Amaranth
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tsp Connect Foods Cacao Powder
  • 1/2 cup fresh berries of your choice
  • maple syrup (optional)




First, soak Connect Foods chia seeds in coconut milk and set aside.

Add Connect Foods amaranth to a heated pan, and gently toast the amaranth for a minute or two, stirring constantly, just until they start releasing their warm nutty scent. Then add water and bring to a simmering boil.

Just before the amaranth is done cooking, add in cacao powder and soaked chia seeds with coconut milk. allow to cook just a little while longer until completely done.

Pour into bowls and add your fresh berries, and a drizzle of maple syrup to reach desired sweetness.

Makes two servings
