Millet Health Benefits

Millet contains a wealth of essential nutrients, including magnesium, manganese, and copper. This amazing grain is easily digestible and is considered to be an alkaline food, which is great for promoting balance in the body.

One especially beneficial thing about millet is that serotonin is naturally present in this wonderful grain, meaning this food is perfect for promoting a happy mood. Serotonin also has calming properties, making millet a good choice as a breakfast option ahead of a stressful day!

Also, millet is gluten-free and doesn’t contain any allergens. This means that there is no limit to who can enjoy this grain as a staple of their diet!

Breakfast Millet Recipe

To make this breakfast dish for one to two people, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 2 cups / 16fl oz / 450ml of water
  • 1 cup / 70z / 200g of millet, uncooked weight
  • 1 cup / 8fl oz / 225ml of nut milk
  • 1/4 cup / 1oz / 25g of pumpkin seeds
  • A drizzle of maple syrup
  • A handful of your favourite berries


The first step is to place the water in a large saucepan on a high heat and bring to the boil before adding the millet. You can then reduce the heat to low and leave to simmer for 15 minutes, remembering to stir occasionally.

Next, add the nut milk and continue to cook on a low heat for five minutes while stirring. After this time, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the pumpkin seeds.

Finally, divide the millet between two bowls and drizzle with maple syrup. For an extra added antioxidant boost, top with your favourite berries (personally, I love blueberries with this one) and serve immediately!

  1. I’ve never thought to use millet before… looks pretty easy to do! Have you tried re-heating this? I’m wondering how it’d go if I made a batch and re-heated it at work the next morning…
