  • Throw in a teaspoon of chia seeds
  • Add a handful of crushed nuts instead of the nut butter
  • Sprinkle over some coconut flakes for some crunch
  • Leave out the yoghurt and add more milk
  • Add some passionfruit or chopped kiwi fruit

The possibilities are endless!
The porridge can be eaten as is (perfect for when the weather is hot) or you can pop it in the microwave to warm up if you prefer it that way.

  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup Greek or natural yoghurt
  • Cinnamon to taste – optional
  • ½ banana, very finely chopped and diced – optional
