Creamy Coconut Porridge

creamy coconut porridge

The health benefits of porridge have long been extolled but I have to admit that, despite best attempts,  I'd previously struggled to make a habit of eating porridge. I'm not naturally a morning person and that, coupled with the fact that I'd previously found porridge to be rather bland, meant that I rarely incorporated it into my morning routine. That is, until I tried this creamy coconut porridge which tastes so delicious that it's easy to forget that I ever thought of porridge as bland! The inclusion of a couple of tablespoons of coconut milk and the coconut milk yoghurt add an indulgent creaminess and the tropical flavour goes to show that porridge needn't be solely reserved for winter breakfasts!

Three great health benefits: good source of fibre, good for heart health, promotes healthy skin

Makes 1 portion
Enjoy immediately

1/3 cup gluten free oats
1 cup water
4 tbsp coconut milk, canned
3 tbsp natural coconut yoghurt
8 almonds, crushed
8 raspberries
2 heaped tsp coconut chips

1) In a saucepan, stir together the oats, water and coconut milk. Warm over a medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is mostly absorbed and the mixture is thickened, approximately 10 minutes
2) Pour into a bowl and top with the yoghurt, crushed nuts, raspberries and coconut chips
