I will admit I’m usually very disappointed with hotel breakfasts so on a recent trip when I ordered porridge I didn’t have high hopes. But what arrived was the most delicious creamiest porridge I’ve ever had. I checked with the chef and the star (and only) ingredients were oats, cream and full fat milk. For me that’s far to decadent to repeat too often so I’ve been playing around with a slightly healthier version using coconut cream and coconut milk. If you like coconut and you like porridge – you are going to love this.
Creamy Coconut Porridge (one portion)
- 200ml coconut milk
- 50ml coconut cream
- 50g oats
- 1 tablespoon desiccated coconut (plus extra to top)
Put the oats into a pan and add the coconut milk – bring to the boil, then turn down to a simmer and add the coconut cream. Simmer for 3-4 minutes. Add a splash more milk if it starts to stick. Just before serving mix in the desiccated coconut. Serve with some more coconut sprinkled on top.
You really don’t need to add anything else – but if you must pistachios are a great match.
