Fruity grain-free & dairy-free porridge

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.

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... 

Then add the blended nuts mixture.

Heat through thoroughly, brining to a gentle simmer until it’s the desired textures. 

And serve!

I always make extra so I have a portion cold the next day, topped with extra fruits. 

  • 1 1/2 cup mixed nuts (I used cashews, almonds & walnuts)
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 banana
  • splash coconut oil
  • 1 apple
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups coconut milk (depending on how thin/thick you like your porridge)
  • 1/2 cup SUPERGOODFRUITS freeze-dried blackberries
  • sprinkle nutmeg
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
