2 1/4 cups water
2 TSP Cinnamon
1/3 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup shredded coconut
2 TBSP coconut oil
Honey, agave or stevia to taste
1/2 cup coconut milk

Amaranth is pseudocereal, meaning a broadleaf plant being used much the same as a grain. Amaranth is in the gluten free family and has the highes amount of fiber, calcium, protein and iron in its class.  Amaranth is great for those that have internal dampness as it causes a heating effect within the body. Adding cinnamon also enhances the body's ability to "dry out."
