Instructions

You need to start this the night before, so make the porridge the normal way by cooking the oats , milk and honey together until it’s a nice creamy porridge, just takes a few minutes.

Meanwhile heat half the frozen berries in a pan and mash them down with a potato masher before stirring into the porridge to make it dusky pink. Now store the berry porridge overnight in the fridge.

In the morning blend the yoghurt and remaining berries and stir that into your cooled porridge.

Top with the nuts and a drizzle more honey.

Nutrition Info

Oats

Oats are particularly high in manganese which is great for healthy bone formation, healthy skin and helping to control blood sugar. Oats are a wholegrain, that means the good stuff hasn’t been removed. Wholegrains are an important source of B vitamins and fibre.

Oats are a great source of the soluble fibre called beta-glucan. That’s what makes porridge kinda viscous and it stays quite viscous as it passes through you, sweeping up any excess cholesterol as it goes. A happy gut is at the heart of good health!

Oats do a special thing – as they pass through your intestine their bulk presses against its muscly walls. It presses back in response and by doing so its muscles get stronger. Oats are literally like a sparring partner for your digestive tract!

Good honest nutrition

It’s not the horse that draws the cart, but the oats.
