Berry Summer Porridge

Traditionally, porridge is made by boiling ground, crushed, or chopped starchy plants – typically rolled oats.

Hot, steaming porridge is my go to breakfast in winter.  It’s surprisingly comforting and there are so many different ways to make it. Like in the slow cooker for example.

However, in summer, I don’t want something hot to eat for breakfast.

A few years ago I stumbled across Carrie Brown’s Strawberry Seed Porridge.

This recipe is a take of that, with a few modifications.

A grain free porridge using chia seeds.
Ingredients
  • 500g of natural yoghurt
  • ⅓ cup of chia seeds
  • 1⅓ cup of full-fat milk
  • 250g of mixed frozen berries
Instructions
  1. Pour your yoghurt into a bowl
  2. Get the chia seeds, and sprinkle them over the yoghurt
  3. Pour the milk into the bowl and stir until combined.
  4. Mix in the frozen berries
  5. Cover and allow to set in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours, or overnight to set.
Notes
You can use greek yoghurt for a tangier taste.
Coconut milk or Almond milk can also be used as an alternative.

This porridge also makes for a great ‘sane’ snack when you have those afternoon munchies.  In fact, I might go have a bowl right now.

Also, try it with cherries, you won’t be disappointed.
