Delicious choc nut butter porridge 

This choc nut butter porridge has become one of my favourite porridge variations. Not surprising really, as it combines three of my favourites: chocolate, banana and almond butter.

I really love how the sweetness of the banana nut butter topping blends with the slightly bitter flavour of the cacao powder, as it melts into the porridge.

You do need to plan ahead a little bit to make this one, but it’s easy. As long as you’ve got frozen bananas on hand, then your prep’s done!

What do you need to make this chocolate porridge?

You do need to plan ahead a little bit to make this one, but it’s easy. As long as you’ve got frozen bananas on hand, then your prep’s done!

If you’re like me, you use frozen bananas in smoothies and nice cream too, especially in Summer.

The porridge is basically my CREAMY COCONUT MILK PORRIDGE recipe, with added cacao powder.

The topping for this porridge bowl is really easy to make, but you do need a blender. I use my trusty NutriBullet, and I make double so that I can have it again later in the week.

Just whiz the choppeed banana and almond butter together in your blender. Then set it aside while you cook the porridge, and it’ll just soft enough to stir into the porridge.
