Berry Porridge- My go to

If you follow me on instagram you’ll know I post LOTS of porridge photos. It is my go to breakfast/ brunch most days. You might be thinking, Mais why so much hype about porridge?! But first let me show you on one my favourite combos.

*Remember we are ALL different, with different nutritional needs, please don’t just copy my amounts exactly. I post it mine as a guide, for example so you have an idea of the oats to milk ratio I use. But please do YOU, listen to what YOUR body needs. *

The two basic ingredients you need are:

  • Porridge Oats (60g)- I use Tesco’s own range, cheap and cheerful!!
  • Milk of choice (270ml) (or water but milk makes it so much creamier) – I love almond milk in my porridge but use whatever you like best šŸ™‚

An optional ingredient I add is:

  • Protein Powder (35g/ 1 serving) – I add this to boost up my protein intake for the day, I’ve been using Bulk Powders for years, since becoming lactose intolerant I have been using their vegan range and 100% recommend

TOPPINGS!!

  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Greek Style Yogurt

A quick and easy how to:

  1. Get your pan, add the oats, milk (and protein powder if using) and MIX
  2. Cook on the hob- Personally I recommend starting on a low heat, then turning it up to medium towards the end (might take longer but you get a better consistency!)
  3. Serve whenever the porridge gets to a consistency you love. I opt for a slightly runny but I know loads of people you like theirs thick too
  4. Add your chosen toppings
  5. EAT and ENJOY šŸ™‚
