PINK (!) Wholegrain Berry Porridge

The days are shorter, nights longer and we’re starting to crave those good old stodgy home cooked meals… Well, I have something that will brighten up your mornings and satisfy your hot food needs- Pink Wholegrain Berry Porridge!

Not only is it warm, delicious, and looks fab, it will actually keep you full until lunch time and is one of your five a day (as well as being super healthy in itself). Made with a variety of summer berries- think raspberries, blueberries, cherries and cranberries- and whole rolled organic oats, this is one healthy meal to make any cold winter morning more enjoyable. Here’s the recipe below…


1 Handful of Frozen Berries

150-200ml of Milk

100g of Organic Whole Rolled Porridge Oats (click here- these ones are particularly good and not too pricey)

A Drizzle of Honey- optional!


Step 1

Add oats, berries and 150ml of milk into a pan.

Step 2

Heat on low-med temperature for 5 minutes, stirring throughout until at preferred consistency and ensuring that the berries are warm. Add more milk midway if required.

Step 3

Serve into your favourite bowl and add a little honey if you fancy!

Step 4


Winter Warmer: Flavoured Porridge

I really do believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It literally breaks your fast after a night’s sleep, kick starting the metabolism and providing your body with energy for the day ahead. But with busy schedules and the morning rush it’s sometimes hard to give your body the healthy energy that it deserves. Why not give this a try…

Flavoured porridge! Sounds like it might take a little bit of preparation, but it really isn’t that difficult. All you need is porridge oats- I recommend wholegrain- and frozen fruit of your choice. Mix your oats and milk as you usually would when making porridge and then add a handful of frozen fruit. Heat and ta daaa, a colourful bowl of flavoured porridge.

My favourite fruit to add is berries such as raspberries, blueberries and cranberries, but you can experiment with any fruit for a different flavour each morning. A healthy, yummy and filling breakfast that will provide your belly with the warmth and energy that it needs this winter. xx
