I adore piping hot breakfasts that fill my tummy up in a mouthwateringly good-for-you way.
Mama always had an early energizer on the stove at dawn, be it fresh bread, homemade noodles, bean porridge, or another unique concoction of her own. We would wake up to the crisp scent of her heavenly creations & know that it would be a wonderful day.
Mama-inspired (always & forever), I discovered this little gem of a porridge that warms me to the core on chilly mornings. All you need is a baby crockpot that’ll share its heat overnight. 🙂
May all your mornings be creamy, dreamy & bright!
- 2 cups almond milk
- 2 tbsp pearled barley or quinoa
- 2 tbsp mung beans
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- fresh ginger
- gogi berries (optional)
- coconut flakes (optional)
- happy thoughts!
Personally, I like this best plain, but I’ve also experimented with cinnamon, cacao & honey, so try and see what tastes best to you!
(easiest) DIRECTIONS (ever):
Rinse barley & beans until water runs clear. Toss in crockpot with chia seeds & fresh ginger. Stir in almond milk & happy thoughts.
Let sit overnight while you dream good dreams. Wake up to a to a delicious breakfast, a delicious day!
Optional: garnish with gogi berries, coconut flakes, fresh fruits, or nuts & seeds!
Good morning! <3
