Quickie: Coconut Porridge

Quickie: Coconut Porridge

Each week I post a sweet or savoury, healthy recipe!

This Recipe 


This one has been my go-to for years now. I'm not really a fan of porridge/oatmeal but I am fan of the heartiness and fullness that it gives you. This recipe will have the texture that you're used to without as much heaviness. It can also be whipped up in about 5 minutes!


Makes 2-4 servings, depending on size 



  • 1 cup or 240mL almond/cashew milk 
  • 1 cup or 125g coconut flakes (less for smoother consistency) 
  • 2 tbsp or 32g almond butter 
  • 1 tbsp or 14g coconut oil 
  • 1 small spoonful honey or maple syrup for sweetness 
  • 1 to 2 drops vanilla extract 
  • Ground cinnamon to top 
  • Fruit + seeds of your choice 



    Begin by melting your honey/maple syrup, almond butter and coconut oil over medium to medium high heat. (Try not to boil!) Once nearly melted, add coconut flakes and half your milk. Stir until well combined. Add additional milk according to your taste. Stir in vanilla extract. 

    Finally, remove from heat and top with cinnamon and preferred fruit. I love pomegranate seeds, chia seeds and sliced pears for mine. Be as creative as you like here!
