This gluten free, high protein, antioxidant-rich and delicious tasting porridge is a great way to kick-start your morning and give you the energy without the morning slump!

Ingredients

Variations: Use rice milk instead of almond milk if preferred. Add ½ sliced banana or ½ chopped apple instead of berries.
