Ingredients

  • ½ cup red sorghum
  •  cups Medspresso™ CBD-Infused Rooibos Tea
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 tsp Liviana® CBD-Infused Honey
  • 1 ½  cups fresh berries
  • Salt and pepper

Method

1. In a medium pot add the Medspresso™ CBD-Infused Rooibos Tea to the red sorghum and let it stand overnight. This will shorten the cooking time.

2. Place the pot with 2 extra cups of water and a pinch of salt onto the stove and simmer over a medium heat for 45 – 60 minutes. The sorghum kernels will soften.

3. Mash the banana into a small sauce pan with the honey and mix well until combined. Cook over a medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.

4. Add the cooked sorghum to a bowl, top with the banana toffee and fresh berries. Serve with plain yoghurt or milk/milk alternative.
