Fresh Strawberry and Mint Porridge

As you will probably know we are having a bumper harvest this year of soft fruits. So I am using them in as many different dishes as I can. Today's recipe is now a favourite of mine. There is nothing more satisfying than going down the garden in the morning to pick fresh berries and mint for breakfast.

This is what I did...

Fresh Strawberry and Mint Porridge

Ingredients - Per serving

35g porridge oats
10 strawberries, quartered
4 fresh mint leaves
180mls your chosen milk, I used coconut milk


1 - Put the porridge oats and milk in a pan and place over a medium heat

2 - Add the mint leave and 8 of the quartered strawberries

3 - Gently bring to the boil then simmer for 5 minutes, as the strawberries heat up they release their delicious juice into the porridge and milk

4 - Serve in a bowl, topped with the remaining strawberry quarters

This is pure heaven in a bowl. So quick and easy to make and healthy! The perfect way to start the day!
