The Porridge Post

I seem to be starting off with things I originally found really hard to eat. I didn’t know what to do with grapefruit or tomatoes and now porridge. But creating yummy things out of boring things is what I’m really enjoying.

I started off eating porridge by just adding water and throwing a few blueberries or pomegranate on top. By the time the fruit ran out, I was gagging on the porridge and it would end up in the bin. I don’t have a microwave either so I always have to make it in the pot. It’s a messier clean up but WAY nicer to eat.

Then I started making Banana and Almond milk Porridge. And I could eat it all day. You can put whatever toppings you like on it and it sets you up for the day.


  • Porridge (gluten free if you like)
  • 1 Banana
  • Almond Milk
  • Water
  • Optional Handful of Blueberries
  • Optional Chia Seeds
  • Optional Desiccated Coconut


  1. Pour about 1/2 to 3/4 a cup of Porridge into a saucepan. Cover it with the same amount of water. Put the saucepan on a medium heat.
  2. Chop the banana into slices and pop into the pot.
  3. Let the porridge do it’s thing, stirring occasionally.
  4. When the water is beginning to bubble, add the almond milk. As much or little as you like. I add about a 1/4 cup. If you put the milk in at the start, it starts sticking and burning the bottom of the pot. No craic.
  5. Stir again and let it simmer away for a few minutes more. When the consistency is creamy and not too watery, it’s done
  6. Pour into a bowl and top off with whatever you like, today I had desiccated coconut, chia seeds and Blueberries.
