Porridge Ⓥ

Especially in winter time (whenever it’s cold basically), I love to start my day with yoga (obviously) and then a scrumptious, easy to prepare, filling & warm breakfast. This porridge recipe gives you enough energy until lunchtime !

Ingredients (I prefer organic)

  • 2 cups non-dairy milk of choice (preferably unsweetened) or mix of water & non-dairy milk
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 tsp chia seeds or ground flax seeds (omega 3)
  • A handful of raisins (low G-I sweetener) or chopped dates
  • Half an apple or banana
  • 1 tbsp sunflower or pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tsp mesquite or maca powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp coconut butter or nut butter
  • 1 tbsp shredded coconut (optional)


  1. Cinnamon-Porridge-with-Nuts-and-Dried-Fruits-500Put oats in a pan with the non-dairy milk and raisins.
  2. Once it boils, then let it simmer for a few minutes on a low fire/ heat until the oats soften.
  3. Add more milk or boiling water if your porridge is too thick.
  4. Add the spices, powder, and coconut or nut butter.
  5. Add the porridge to a bowl, top with coconut flakes.

You can vary with the fruits & dried fruits depending on what’s in season & what you have at home (i.e. replace the raisins with goji berries, dried dates, apricots or cranberries).

These quantities are enough for a few servings depending on your appetite.
