Every week until Christmas we’ll be catching up with some of our favourite foodies, wellbeing and fitness gurus to find out what makes their Christmas.
First up was Alex, founder of porridge hub 26 Grains.
Got you in the mood for a warming bowl of porridge? Give her recipe for Nordic Spiced porridge a try.
- 1/2 a cup Rolled Oats
- 1/2 a cup of Nut Milk (I love Coconut Milk or Almond Milk)
- 1/2 a cup of Water
- 1/8 teaspoon of Cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon of Vanilla
- 1/8 teaspoon of Ground Cardamon
- 1/8 teaspoon of Ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon of Turmeric
- 1 teaspoon of Flaxseeds
- 1 teaspoon of Raisins
- 1 teaspoon of Maple Syrup
- 1 shaved Apple
- Coconut Yoghurt
- A Pinch of Salt
Mix the oats, nut milk, 1/2 a cup of water and a pinch of salt in a saucepan and start to warm it over a medium heat.
Then add in all the spices.
Keep stirring the porridge and watch it infuse with the spices for a few minutes.
Once you’ve got it to the consistency you like, take it off the heat and pour in to a bowl, drizzle with maple syrup and then add the shaved apple, raisins and coconut yoghurt on top.
