Amaranth Chia Cherry Bowl

Amaranth is one of those grains that A Blood Types do well on…as well as those who don’t handle wheat and gluten all that famously. It is nutty in flavor.  For this recipe, I soak the amaranth and chia over night with the water (and leave it out on the stove, covered). Doesn’t take long, maybe 5 minutes at night and  maybe the same the following morning.   In the morning, I heat up the amaranth that’s been soaking all night on the stove on medium, giving it a stir now and then and make sure it fully develops when it becomes thick and all water is absorbed.  If your amaranth is a bit crunchy still, then add a bit more water and cook some more. My original recipe had 1C of water, so you can go that high.  I also thawed the cherries out in the fridge the night before as well.  If you don’t have time to thaw cherries, put them in the hot amaranth.  What a treat! No sweeteners needed.

1/3C amaranth grain

1T chia

2/3rd C water

4-6 oz. cherries pitted

1/4 C native forest coconut milk

1 scoop vanilla protein powder if desired or 2T favorite nut butter
