Porridge with iced fruit, turmeric, spirulina and coconut nectar

porridgeIt’s just gone seven o’clock in the morning, a rainy and grey London summer morning. I have to take the children to school and nursery soon and then drive to a shoot in Camden.So, before I start the day, it’s time for a few moments to myself.

A cup of green chai tea and a bowl of porridge makes the move from the warm comfortable bed to daytime a pleasure, especially when you jazz it up a little.

This time, I’ve added frozen fruit. Get a heavy bottomed saucepan, pour in a load of sprouted porridge oats and add double the volume of almond milk. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 4-5 minutes, stirring all the time. When the milk is absorbed, add a handful of frozen fruit, some turmeric and spirulina then drizzle with coconut nectar. If that doesn’t get your day off to a good start then there’s no hope for you.
