1/2 cup dry, whole millet
1 (14oz) can lite coconut milk
2 Tbsp. honey (or liquid stevia to taste)
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup raisins (or substitute goji berries, etc.)

(NOTE: You can cook millet in bulk and freeze for a quick breakfast. If using already cooked, plain millet, use 1 1/2 cups for this recipe.)
