Coconut Milk Porridge With Grapefruit
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Oats make for a great start to the day - they release their energy slowly throughout the morning, while using a really alkaline fruit like grapefruit as a topping for your porridge adds a really healthy burst of sweetness.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: Serves 2
  • 100g (3.17oz / 1 cup) porridge oats (preferably gluten-free)
  • 235ml (8.3fl oz / 1 cup) coconut milk
  • 1 generous pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut blossom syrup (or honey, maple syrup or date syrup)
  • 2 tablespoons of desiccated coconut
  • ½ a grapefruit (or fruit of your choice)
  1. Place the oats, coconut milk, salt, coconut blossom syrup (or other) and desiccated coconut in a pan and heat gently, over a medium heat, until most of the liquid has been absorbed and the mixture thickens - this should take around 2-3 minutes. If the porridge gets too thick, just add a little more coconut milk to loosen it.
  2. Remove the porridge from the heat and divide it between your bowls. Serve piping hot with your grapefruit over the top and a little drizzle of your syrup for added sweetness.
