Ragi Malt or ragi porridge is a drink made using Ragi Flour (Finger Millet flour). It's one of the healthy drinks and packed with nutrition and taste.
If you are a protein shake fanatic, you have no doubt noticed that are all protein powders are mighty expensive. Even more so, when you choose a vegan option. I love the fact that they make my daily smoothie more filling and meal-like after a brisk walk, but the price tag is just too high! Well, I have a solution for that... Ragi Malt
Don't let this tricky name cause you to pass by...I recently posted this recipe for Ragi Cookies and among all the comments and feedback I got, I noticed that not many people were familiar with this Superfood.
So I decided to post the ragi malt recipe and shed some light on Finger Millet. Just type in "Finger Millet" on Amazon and you will find that it is not that difficult to buy. If you looking to lose weight quickly, this is one good option for healthy results.
If you have given up dairy foods (Like I did), this grain will provide all the calcium you will need. The recipe for this drink is fairly simple and takes less than 10 minutes. Not only will you save time and lose weight, but you will also spend less on finger millets than you will on protein powder all the while doing a lot more good to the planet by switching to this Vegan alternative. Here's the recipe...
