Cook until the water is almost evaporated.

While the fonio is cooking, take the pits out of the dates and blend them in your blender along with the Brazil nut milk and vanilla bean.

6

Slowly pour the milk into the prepared fonio, stirring the entire time.

Add milk until the porridge is the consistency you prefer.

Once that is achieved, pour into a bowl and top it off with sliced burro bananas and a pinch of cinnamon.
