Perfectly Tropical Porridge!

Being a huge lover of porridge I am always on the look out for ways of making it even yummier!

My latest trial was to add coconut and sultanas whilst cooking, it was so lovely and Summery I thought I would share my recipe:

Perfectly Tropical Porridge for 2:

3 handfuls of porridge oats
1 dessert spoon of unsweetened desiccated coconut
1 handful sultanas
water and skimmed milk in equal parts

Pop the oats in a saucepan and cover with water, now add a good splosh of milk, the coconut and the sultanas.
Bring to the boil, stirring all the while, then when thickened serve with a little light sugar - you won't need a lot as the sultanas are so sweet.

Prefer to use a microwave?  

Simply place the ingredients in a microwavable bowl, set the microwave to 60% and cook for about 5 minutes. Stir, and then put on high for 1.5 mins until thickened.

Oats are very healthy, helping to lower cholesterol so a great way to start the day. Oats also help you to feel fuller for longer - stopping the mid morning munchies!
