Millet & Milkshake Breakfast

Milkshake:  2T chia seed, 2T buckwheat, 2T ground almonds + the contents of a pro-biotic capsule soaked in a cup and a half of soymilk or water for 10-15 min. I sometimes combine these in a blender, capped with the lid overnight in the refrigerator. Soaked chia seed makes the milk shake thicker. Blend this with 2T Costco's Plant Protein Powder or 1T cocoa pwdr with  and a half banana. If you use water or skip the protein pwdr, you'll need the banana!

Millet: Boil 1 c water, add ¼ c millet + ⅛ t. salt per person. Cook over low heat till millet is done, about 20 min. Top the Millet with Ground Sesame Seed and Flax Seed, Mixed Raw Nuts, Costco's Frozen Three Berries, Cut Apples, 2T Hemp Seed and perhaps some Unsweetened Shredded Coconut. 

Mixed Raw Nuts: We buy bags of raw nuts: almonds, cashews, walnuts, pecans, pistachios also dried cranberries, toss these together and divide into sandwich ziplock bags and store in the freezer, so they are always handy for breakfast or a snack.

This looks really good. I make kefir smoothies everyday and was just given a juicer, so I will start making more juices with veggies and fruit. I like millet, but haven't bought it in a while. I will have to pick some up again. I love all the variety in your breakfast.
