This is a solid and versatile recipe to which you can add your own flavourings. The following represents quite an indulgent version, maybe to have on a Friday!
Base recipe (serves 2):
1 tablespoon of chia seeds (for energy and Omega 3)
450ml of nut milk or just water
2 ways of making this porridge
Raw overnight oats:
Soak the above in a bowl over night, stir with your choice of flavourings and enjoy. This will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days if you have made too much.
Soak the above in a pan for 10-15 minutes with your choice of flavourings in the morning and then simmer gently for 5 minutes for a hot porridge. Stir any superfoods in at the last minute.
Our additional flavourings:
1 tablespoon of cacao
1 tablespoon of ground almonds
1 grated pear
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of goji berries
1 tablespoon of desiccated coconut
Drizzle of date syrup
You can add other superfood powders as well just before serving, such as a teaspoon of lucucma, baobab, bee pollen, maca or ashwaganda for energy.
NOTE: if you are not used to taking bee pollen just start with just 1 pellet (in case of allergy). Ashwaganda is not safe for children or during pregnancy. Cacao is a stimulant.
