One of the best days ever!
This morning when I was mooching around on facebook (while eating my porridge) I noticed that today is World Porridge day. What a perfect day to continue with Pimp my Porridge!
Some of these are ideas I have used before, but I am sure we all love a good recap anyway.
For my porridge I always make it the night before- put the oats, milk and dried/ fresh fruit in a bowl, and leave it in the fridge to soak and plump up overnight. Then in the morning I cook it in the microwave for 2 mins 20. I would then top with spices, nuts, nut butter or anything else that I do not cook.
Banana mashed with cocoa powder + oats + almond milk.
Chopped pear + blackberries + oats + almond milk + spices
Banana mashed with carob powder + oats + almond milk
Tinned peaches + oats + almond milk + cinnamon
Chopped apple + grated carrot + raisins + oats + almond milk + cinnamon
Dates + oats + coconut milk + cinnamon
Blackberries + oats + coconut milk + mixed spice
Cherries + oats + coconut milk + dessicated coconut
Tinned peaches + oats + coconut milk + dessicated coconut
Frozen raspberries + oats + coconut milk + drizzle of pb + dessicated coconut
Oooh bad pic! Cherries + cocoa + oats + coconut milk
Raisins + oats + coconut milk + cinnamon
Cherries + dried apple + oats + coconut milk + flaked almonds.
Yum! So many tasty ideas! I still stick to good old raisins and cinnamon before a morning run, before a race or when I am trying to save money! But I am loving having different breakfasts each morning.
I know I asked this last week, so what is your favourite way to pimp your porridge?
I had a rest today as I was quite stiff from the run yesterday, and I decided to not push it, and go out strong on Wednesday instead. That is the plan anyway.
PS I am well informed that the fairy hobmother may well be perusing your comments on my wishes post, so have a comment if you have not already 🙂
And PPS (is that a thing?) thanks for all the sponsorship! I am getting so close to my target! Remember the minimum is £2, and those £2’s will add up pretty quick and all for a great cause. Plus some fab prizes (and a couple more to add over the next day or so)- so look here please! 🙂
This is an example of the baking I could add to the prizes, but really it is just an excuse as I love them in the little bags so much! 🙂
Final question- which would you choose- a dark chocolate brownie, peanut butter white chocolate blondie or white chocolate fudge? For market research purposes of course 😉
