Coconut and Berry Porridge Recipe

Tired of the same boring fare in the morning? Try this spin on oats porridge, to get your day off to a great start.

PREP TIME: 5 minutes
COOKING TIME: 10 minutes

Recipe Ingredients

175g Oats
250ml Fat-Free Milk
500 ml water
400ml can Coconut Milk Lite
1 tablespoon (15 ml) Soft light brown sugar
1 teaspoon (5 ml) ground cinnamon
a good grating of nutmeg, plus extra to serve
pinch of salt


3 tablespoon (45 ml) light soft brown sugar
3 oranges, peeled and sliced
200g fresh or frozen mixed berries

Recipe Method

* Mix the oats, milk, coconut milk, sugar, spices and a pinch of salt in a saucepan. Set over low heat and cook for about 10 mins, stirring every now and then to prevent the porridge from sticking, until it’s thick and creamy – add a splash more milk if you like it thinner.

* Meanwhile, prepare the compote. Put the sugar and 2 tablespoons of water in a frying pan and heat to dissolve the sugar. Once bubbling, add the oranges and berries. Stir, then turn up the heat and leave to bubble for a few minutes until most of the liquid evaporates and the compote becomes thick and sticky.

* To serve, spoon the porridge into bowls, top with the orange & berry compote and an extra grating of nutmeg.
