Start the day off right with a hearty and sustaining bowl of grain-free coconut porridge topped with a quick blackberry, blueberry sauce.
A piping hot bowl fortifies from the inside out; it’s extra insulation against whatever Mother Nature has in store outside.
I should start by saying that there a few things that set this porridge apart from the usual.
First, it doesn’t contain any oats, wheat or rice. Rather what you’ll find here is a mix of coconut, cashews and hemp seeds that are blitzed together then gently heated on the stove until thick and creamy. The resulting porridge is velvety (similar to cream of rice or cream of wheat) but with a nice chewy bite from the coconut for texture.
Second, it doesn’t require much time on the stove to cook, so it’s perfect for busy mornings. Just a few minutes at night before you head off to bed and you’ll have a hearty and healthy start to your day ready for you in no time.
And lastly it has staying power, to keep you going through the morning thanks to the healthy fats and fiber from the nuts and seeds.
I like to serve it with a quick sauce made with blackberries and blueberries and a little coconut milk on the side to pour around the edges but any of your favorite toppings will do. Fresh or dried fruit with a drizzle of maple syrup or honey is nice here as well. The recipe here makes enough for two to share, or save the other half re-heat it for breakfast the following day.
