It’s a tropical winter warmer… Sweet & fruity, but wonderfully warming on a cold winter’s morning… Porridge sets me up until lunch, providing there’s enough protein in it. I definitely couldn’t get by on oats and milk, but the addition of coconut milk, and or nuts and seeds keeps me going. I absolutely love that warming feeling it gives too, like being heated from the inside out…
Ingredients (serves 1):
1 handful oats
1/2 large papaya
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 can coconut milk
Almond milk to top
1. Put the oats and chia seeds in a pan on the hob. Halve a papaya and remove the seeds. Score length-ways and width-ways to create cubes, then scoop them out with a spoon in to the pan.
2. Top up with coconut milk and almond milk and heat for around 5 minutes to a gentle simmer. Add more almond milk if the porridge is too thick.
2. Serve when it’s hot through and the consistency suits you!
