Almond Pear Porridge

Pears are such an underrated fruit. If you are like me and can no longer have apples, pears are a great alternative.

With so many different varieties you will find one that you will love.  D’Anjou has to be one of my all-time favourites, with a beautiful lush rose colour it’s full of flavour and juice.

If apples give you digestive issues, then pears will become your new BFF.

Normally I have granola for breakfast.  Which I love, but somedays I just want something different.

While browsing the pantry one day I came across an open packet of almond meal.  I go through phases where I go through this stuff like there is no tomorrow, and then there will be stages where it never sees the light of day.  I was in that later stage.

It was then I remembered that I had a porridge recipe that I collected back in 2013 that used pears and almond meal.  I decided to make it again, and well let’s just say I’m glad it is back in my life.

If you are looking for a grain-free breakfast dish that’s great for warm summer mornings, then look no further.

Almond Pear Porridge for 1

Ingredients

    • 1 Pear, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
    • 1/3 cup of almond or coconut milk (carton)
    • 1/2 cup almond meal
    • 1/8 cup ground flaxseed
    • 1 scoop True Protein Powder (vanilla or strawberry)
    • 1/8 cup shredded coconut

Method

    1. Blend the pear and almond (or coconut milk) in a food processor
    2. Add the almond meal, flaxseed and protein powder
    3. Blend until combined
    4. Add the shredded coconut, and blend again until the coconut is just mixed through

Serves 1

The pears will give it a natural sweetness.  If you find it’s not sweet enough, add 1-2 tsp of sweetener of your choice, like honey, maple syrup or monk fruit.
