  4. Remove the almonds from the oven and cool for 5 minutes.
  5. Blend the almonds with the water on high speed until completely pulverised.
  6. Pour the contents into a saucepan to boil then reduce to low heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring throughout to avoid any sticking.
  7. Once the almond mixture starts to thicken stir in the vanilla, pink salt and spices.
  8. Continue to stir while sweetening with the coconut condensed milk and sprinkle the chia seeds into the porridge
  9. When all of the ingredients have been added to the saucepan, allow to simmer for a further 10-15 minutes until the porridge has reach it’s desired thickness. If it’s too thick simply add a few tablespoons of water or if the recipe needs to thicken some more add another tablespoon of chia seeds. Keep in mind as the porridge begins to cool when served, the density will increase even further.
