Gluten Free Power Porridge
By Teresa Cutter
What's great about it
This is my all time favourite porridge that I enjoy most mornings when the weather is a little cold outside. It's made from vanilla, flaxseed, chia, fresh apple and a good dose of cinnamon that makes this morning ritual taste exactly like apple strudel. I normally make this porridge with water then add a good splash of hot milk and a little honey just before I eat it. Choose what ever milk you prefer (dairy, seed, nut, soy) and for extra protein add a scoop of your favourite protein powder. All up this porridge is a must for all movers and shakers and hits the spot for a good healthy breakfast.
Time it takes: 10 minutes
1/2 cup water
1 apple, grated
2 tablespoons LSA
1 tablespoon chia seeds
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
125 ml almond milk (or your choice of dairy, nut, seed)
NB: add extra fruit on top if you like (banana, berries and fig work well)
Combine water, apple and cinnamon into a pot with the LSA, chia seed,, vanilla and cinnamon.
Cook over a low heat for a few minutes until heated through and thickened and stir in the chopped banana.
Serve topped with warm milk and a little honey.
PUMP UP THE PROTEIN
For an extra hit of protein add 1 tablespoon of healthy chef Pure Native Natural WPI to your choice of milk and shake well. Fold through your porridge just before serving - don't heat or you'll denature the protein.
