With winter fast approaching, I need a more hearty breakfast to power me through the day. I’m a big fan of porridge for exactly that reason. But I wanted to try an alternative to the typical oats & milk/water combination. So I decided to make a grain-free AND dairy-free porridge.
1 1/2 cup mixed nuts (I used cashews, almonds & walnuts)
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 egg yolk
splash coconut oil
1 1/2 – 2 cups coconut milk (depending on how thin/thick you like your porridge)
1/2 cup SUPERGOODFRUITS freeze-dried blackberries
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
To do this I soaked mixed nuts and coconut flakes in water with a pinch of salt.
I left them overnight to really soften them.
Then after draining and washing them, I blended them up with an egg yolk and half a banana to make a nice thick mixture.
In the meantime I sautéed apple pieces and nutmeg in coconut oil in a pan.
When the apple had softened, I added some coconut milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon…and SUPERGOODFRUITS freeze-dried wild blackberries.
Then add the blended nuts mixture.
Heat through thoroughly, brining to a gentle simmer until it’s the desired textures.
I always make extra so I have a portion cold the next day, topped with extra fruits.
