Vegan Superfood Porridge

imagesThis is a winter-warmer recipe for breakfast.  Oats are a good source of B vitamins and help combat winter blues.

Hemp is a good source of omega-3s for vegans, and hemp milk a great alternative to dairy as is the only vegan milk I have found that can be used in tea or coffee (without curdling).

  • I soak organic porridge oats in filtered water the night before.  This makes the texture creamier.
  • I use hemp milk, which I heat, the drain, rinse and add the oats.
  • I add a teaspoon and a half of ground, sprouted flax powder and a sprinkling of hemp seeds (after porridge has slightly cooled).
  • I then add either chopped strawberries, blueberries or banana.
  • I sometimes refrigerate leftovers and serve after school with some yoghurt.
  • Sprinkled dried fruit or carob powder (or cacao) for a treat :)
