Energizing Matcha and Banana Millet Porridge

I tend to be really hungry in the morning, and am often woken up by my rumbling stomach, as funny as it sounds. Since I am currently cutting out refined sugar for 21 days, and am always looking for recipes to satisfy my sweet tooth, I decided to come up with a filling, slightly sweet breakfast recipe this week. Here it is: my Energizing Matcha and Banana Millet Porridge. It takes a little bit longer to prepare than instant porridge, but I promise its taste will make up for the extra effort you have to put in. I simply love the nutty taste of millet, one of my favorite pseudo-grains (it is actually a seed, but referred to as a grain in the culinary world) since I was a little girl. It is extremely protein-rich (by comparison, of course), as well as a good source of fiber, B vitamins and minerals, such as iron, calcium, zinc and magnesium. It is thus perfect for athletes. Enjoy!
