Chia and Coconut Porridge Winter Warmer Bowl by Alice

1. Chia and Coconut Porridge Winter Warmer Bowl

Porridge is the perfect winter breakfast; warm, easy, filling, and really nutrient-dense. But as the mornings and evenings get darker and the weather a bit colder, it can be difficult to find inspiration to change it up and try things a little differently. This Porridge Bowl does just that, by combining the rich fibre glucan mix of oats with the high antioxidant content of blueberries and the protein and amino acid profile of flaxseed for a sweet treat that’s versatile and nutritious. 

Ingredients

  • 3 scoops of Nutribuddy Chia and Coconut Porridge
  • 6 scoops of coconut milk (or milk of your choice)
  • Selection of fruit (Alice uses strawberries, raspberries and blueberries)
  • Sprinkle of milled flaxseed and chia seeds
  • Drizzle of honey

Method

  • Put the porridge and milk into a bowl and microwave for up to a minute. Stir. 
  • Sprinkle on the flaxseed and chia.
  • Arrange the fruit as you’d like on top. 
  • Add a drizzle of honey… and enjoy!

On your birthday you’re already likely to indulge in lots of treats, so to get in a good breakfast before the frivolities begin at least gives you some nutritional value for the day so you can enjoy the rest of it guilt-free. This bright pink smoothie bowl is how Alice started her 31st birthday and does make for a great Instagram snap, but doesn’t need to be for birthdays only… make up an occasion if you don’t have one!

Method

  • Combine the Nutribuddy Sculpting Shake, coconut milk, frozen berry mix, banana and half of the blueberries, and blend
