Papaya & Coconut Porridge

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 Method: 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! Follow us on facebook,Twitter, Instagram & …

Papaya Yoghurt Breakfast Boats with Homemade Granola

I got into buying papaya during the summer to make a Hemsley & Hemsley ‘Papaya & Halloumi Salad‘, which by the way is absolutely delicious and a regular on the summer dinner scene at ours now.  I picked one up the other day thinking that I’d make the salad, but it’s so cold I couldn’t face it…So the papaya became breakfast instead and the Papaya Yoghurt Breakfast Boat was born! Ingredients: 1 ripe papaya 3 tbsp natural organic greek yoghurt (or coconut yoghurt) 2 tbsp home made granola Method: 1. Cut the papaya in half length ways.  Remove the seeds with a spoon and discard. 2. Use a fork to remove all of the flesh (without breaking the skin), and place in a bowl.  Give it a mash with the fork. 3. Add the yoghurt and a tbsp of granola to the papaya and mix. 4. Put the yoghurt mixture back in the papaya skin and sprinkle with additional granola.  Serve immediately! Follow us on facebook,Twitter, Instagram & Pintrest Follow my blog with Bloglovin
