  • Start the night before by bringing dried cherries, apricots, ginger shreds, and 12.35 fl. oz. of water to a boil in a small pan. Cover with a lid and let the fruit mixture simmer for 12 minutes. After that, add the tea bags and let them infuse for 3 minutes. Once done, remove the tea bags and squeeze the excess liquid into the pan.

  • In another pan, combine the rinsed amaranth with 11.45 fl. oz. of water, then set it aside.

  • The next day, bring the amaranth mixture to a boil, then lower the heat, cover with a lid and cook for 12-14 minutes. Add the chia seeds, half of the yoghurt and mix well.

  • Divide the mixture into the bowls and top with the remaining yoghurt. Add sliced apples and pomegranate seeds to the compote and spoon it over the porridge. Serve and enjoy!


  • To make the porridge more filling, you can add a scoop of protein powder or a handful of nuts or seeds to the mixture while it's cooking.

  • Soak the amaranth in water overnight or for at least a few hours before cooking. This helps to soften the grains and make them easier to cook.

Bon Appetit!
