In a small saucepan, mix all the ingredients except for the pitaya powder, maple syrup and toppings. At medium heat, bring the porridge to a low simmer. Then slowly reduce the heat and cook 5 to 10 minutes until the porridge is to your desired texture and the apple and beet are mostly cooked. When almost done, add the pitaya powder and mix thoroughly. Turn off the heat. Serve in bowls, adding a generous drizzle of maple syrup, a dollop of non-dairy yogurt, a few raspberries, extra grated beet and apple, and some sliced almonds.
