I got to make this delicious raw porridge for our breakfast on the days off here at the yoga retreat, it is perfect for warm days and can also be heated if you would rather a yummy hot porridge for those winter mornings.
It takes just two minutes to prepare in the evening and two minutes to complete in the morning!
This porridge is so delicious you will have trouble believing that it is also super good for you. And, as if it needs any more benefits, oats are high in fibre and nutrients and so slow to digest, so along with the nuts and chia seeds this raw porridge breakfast will keep you full and more likely to be snack free until lunch time.
Unsweetened Brown Rice Milk (or almond milk)
Pinch of Ginger Powder
Two Pinches Cinnamon Powder
Pinch Sea Salt
Any other fruit – I used chopped fresh Apricots
Place all the ingredients (except the bananas and fresh fruit) in a large bowl and cover well in which ever milk you are using – it needs to be quite liquidy at this point so that the milk can be readily soaked into the oats and chia seeds. Give it a good stir and have a little taste now, adding more of what ever you need/like. Cover and leave in fridge overnight to soak.
In the morning, add more milk if necessary until you reach your desired consistency, then mash the banana and stir into the porridge.
Top with your favourite fresh chopped fruit to serve.
