Creamy Vanilla Porridge

Oats are my favourite way to start the day! You might argue that porridge for breakfast is a bit boring… not in my kitchen! Its all about getting the right consistency and pimping it up with delicious toppings!

  • Place a saucepan over a medium heat and add the milk and oats. Stir occasionally until little bubbles start to form then stir in the protein powder. Remove from the heat (depending on preferred consistency you can add a little extra milk or water), then pour into a bowl.
  • Top with your fav toppings and enjoy! As you can see, I absolutely love my frozen berry nut butter combo but you can also add mixed seeds, nuts, banana, tropical fruits, different nut or seed butters and mixed berries.
