In this dish, I've combined of some of my favorite super grains in almond milk to create a creamy blend with just a little crunch. The chai seasoning is so warm and delicious, it is the perfect compliment to the nutty flavor of the grains. This breakfast seems to warm my belly as I eat. I seriously can't get enough of this dish!
