When the days start getting shorter and the mornings darker, there are few things more enjoyable than a warming breakfast bowl to get you out of bed in the morning.
As much as we love a comforting bowl of oats topped with fresh seasonal fruit, homemade jam and a sprinkle of Qnola, we've got some tasty, nourishing porridge alternatives to add to your repertoire this Winter. Free from gluten, grains, dairy and refined sugars, the below recipes are all high in protein and contain essential vitamins and minerals to help you Wake Up Well® each new day.
Incredibly warm and comforting, this recipes reminds us of rice pudding. The quinoa absorbs the coconut milk for a creamy and rich finish whilst the super foods and spices intensify the flavour. You can also enjoy this recipe cold, made the night before and left in the fridge overnight.
GINGER BLUEBERRY PORRIDGE
If you're more of a fruit in the morning kinda person, this spiced blueberry porridge is a real winner. If you don't have time to make your own nut milk, shop bought will work just as well for a quick, nutritious morning meal.
CHIA PORRIDGE PUDDING
One of our favourite breakfasts (also a perfect snack or dessert), this chia porridge pudding provides instant and long-lasting energy. The flavour combinations are endless and the various toppings really take it up a notch.
CHIA SEED PUDDING
There's nothing in conventional western diets similar to chia seeds so the texture of this pudding may seem baffling to some. However, made the right way, this creamy bowl of goodness is like a healthier (and in our opinion better) version of cold rice pudding. Sprinkle some Qnola on for added crunch and you're on to a winner.
