Despite its name, this breakfast is a cereal, not a drink.

Serves 4


  • 1½ cups amaranth
  • 2½ cups water
  • 1 cup skim or soy milk
  • 3 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. shredded sweetened coconut


In a medium saucepan, bring the amaranth, water, skim or soy milk, brown sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, cinnamon and salt to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer, stirring frequently, until the liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes. Top each bowl with shredded sweetened coconut.
