Vegan Millet Monte

Ingredients for 4 portions:

  • 100g millet groats (about ½ cup)

  • 1,5 cups of boiling water

  • 180g hazelnut butter (I used Biona)

  • 350ml of vegetable milk of your choice (I used oat)

  • 4-5 Tbsp maple syrup

  • ⅔ teaspoon of salt

  • 3 tablespoons of raw cocoa

  • Crushed hazelnuts or paleo granola to garnish

Method:

  1. Roast the millet groats for a few minutes in a dry pot, until you smell a slightly nutty aroma. Then drain using a sieve and rinse thoroughly under cold running water. Next, transfer it into a saucepan and add 1,5 cups of boiling water. Cook the millet groats under cover for 20 minutes until soft.

  2. Add the hazelnut butter and the milk into a blender and blend until combined. Next, add maple syrup, salt and cooked millet groats and blend until you get a silky creamy texture (this can take a few minutes).

  3. Once ready separate the mixture into two bowls. Add the cocoa powder into one of the bowls and mix well together.

  4. Now it’s time to dish up! In a serving glass first place the cocoa layer, then gently, using a teaspoon, add the light part on top (try keeping the layers separate). Sprinkle the crushed hazelnuts or granola on top.

  5. Place the ready glasses in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
