Coconut millet porridge

I recently came across some millet in the health store and I thought, why not try it out? I had no idea what to do with it, but because it's very similar to oats, I wanted to cook a heavenly porridge. If you don't have any millet, just use oats, buckwheat or whatever grain you prefer.
I've also been in love with the asian dessert called "sticky rice with mango sorbet" and I wanted to recreate it in a healthy and more nutritious way, which I have accomplished now! I've also been addicted to the combination of raspberry and coconut lately, so I made two variations.
The recipe is actually too simple to be true, but it's not a lie guys. I promise, it's freaking delicious and so comforting. You can actually also have this cold, now that the weather is getting warmer, it's easy to put it in a jar and set it in the fridge to enjoy the next morning.
Here's the recipe for one serving:

60 g millet (or oats)
1/3 can of coconut milk
100 ml soy milk (or more coconut or another milk)
1 tbsp luquid sweetener (honey or syrup)

Mango, raspberries, nuts, vanilla protein powder instead of sweetener or whatever you feel like.

Toast the millet on medium heat i a saucepan until it starts smelling nice and toasty. Turn the heat to low and add the coconut milk. Stir well so it won't stick to the bottom and add more milk if desired. Add sweetener and stir for a couple of minutes. Put it in a bowl and set aside while you warm the 100 ml of soy milk with raspberries, mango or your favorite fruit. When it's nice a hot, pour it over the millet porridge and serve with your desired toppings! Enjoy!
Btw, I didn't cook the millet before using it. A lot of people think that you'll have to boil the millet in water before using but that's not at all required. I hate cooking this with water because I think it just weakens the taste, that's why I never really use it but you can cook this in water if you feel like it.
Aaaaaaand if you don't like it warm, just let it cool, put it in a jar and set it in the fridge. It's heavenly both warm and cold.
