Breakfast: Coconut Milk Porridge

14 APRIL 2015

I've started following Joe Wicks Instagram, aka The Body Coachon Instagram. I saw him on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch a few weeks ago, and ever since I've been addicted to his #Leanin15 fifteen second recipe videos.

This recipe for coconut milk porridge isn't one of them, it's one of my own, but you can have it ready in under 15 minutes and it's full of super foods, so perfect if you're trying to get lean. It's also a little more interesting than regular porridge!

For someone like me, with Crohn's disease to contend with, this is a really good dairy free alternative for breakfast, and contains only natural sugars.

porridge oats 
coconut milk
ground cinnamon
ground chia seeds
mixed fruit (raisins, sultanas, apricots, cranberries etc) 


Combine the oats (I used 5 dessert spoonfuls per portion), coconut milk (about a quarter of a can for one portion) and water (roughly the same amount as coconut milk) in a pan and heat until all the liquid has absorbed. 

Top with the dried fruit, nuts, cinnamon and chia seeds and stir in a spoonful of honey. These ingredients are completely optional and can be swapped for toppings of your choice. Another favourite of mine is sliced banana and chopped almonds. Yummmm.

Enjoy with your morning cup of tea - obviously mandatory!
