When you have little ones that like to eat puree/mash then this is a little treat that is better than packaged crap. Also good for bigger kids wanting to fill up and munch-down on those reusable pouch-thingies. Perfect for a cool winter morning - or I even enjoy this cold with a fancy little fruit salad and chopped nuts.
Fruity Millet ‘Custard':
2 Big Serves
1/2 cup millet
2C full cream milk (whole milk) or non dairy alternative - full fat coconut is amaaaaazing.
1t mixed spice (or plain cinnamon)
Small pinch of sea salt
3 medjool dates, pits removed
1 pear (or apple) cored but leave the skin on - good fibre!
Roughly chop your dates. Peel, core and chop pear. Place all ingredients in a saucepan, bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer.
When almost all of the liquid has been absorbed (around 20 minutes, it may take longer) turn of heat, pop on the lid and let sit for 10 minutes or so.
When cool enough, blend in a food processor so you get more of a smoother texture for the fuss-pots.
