Creamy coconut milk porridge

There’s no doubt in my mind about how good oats are for you, and this coconut milk porridge is one of my favourite ways to cook them.

I know it’s often a love or hate kinda thing, buuttt ….. if you think you don’t like porridge, I highly encourage you to try it again with this recipe! It’s a far cry from the watery, gloopy stuff you may remember from your childhood. 

Try this creamy coconut milk porridge for a healthy, hearty breakfast

The best thing about this porridge is that it doesn’t need any added sugar. The coconut milk gives the oats a delicious creaminess, and fresh fruit adds plenty of natural sweetness. This is a healthy breakfast that will keep you full til lunchtime.

 I use this coconut milk porridge a lot as a base and then I create variations with different toppings. Keep scrolling for links to my other porridge recipes you should try.
