winter porridge

I am not a huge fan of traditional porridge, but as the weather starts to get rather chilly there is something about starting the day with a warm & nourishing breakfast.




  • 2 cups almond milk or 1 1/2 cups coconut milk & 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup of quinoa flakes
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • Optional: 3 tablespoons mesquite powder
  • 1 Tablespoon of honey (I don’t use this, but add if you feel you need a little sweetener.)



Overnight soak

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and leave overnight to soak, covered.


  1. In a saucepan, combine all ingredients & stir gently over medium heat for 7-10 minutes. It will be the consistency of traditional porridge.

To serve

I prefer to eat my porridge with a little stewed fruit, coconut yoghurt & activated buckinis.

You could also use sliced banana with cinnamon, fresh berries and chopped raw nuts.
