This Instant Pot Amaranth Porridge is a quick and easy healthy breakfast that is gluten-free and dairy-free. This recipe is also sugar-free.
- 1 cup uncooked amaranth
- 2 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 2 ripe bananas, sliced
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, for topping
- 2 scoops collagen peptides* or your favorite protein powder (optional, for extra protein)
- For pressure cooker: Combine amaranth, almond milk, and bananas into a 3-quart pressure cooker. Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes and let the pressure come down naturally for at least 10 minutes. Serve hot with cinnamon sprinkled on top and collagen peptides stirred in.
- For stove-top cooking: Bring almond milk to a gentle boil in a lidded pot. Stir in the amaranth and sliced bananas, lower the heat, and simmer for 25-30 minutes, or until the grain has absorbed most of the liquid. Serve hot with cinnamon sprinkled on top (porridge will thicken as it sits).
Leave out the collagen for vegan.
