Papaya & Coconut Porridge

imageIt’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!
