3 Quick And Healthy Porridge Ideas

Below are three affordable and easy ways of making a delicious morning porridge that fills you up for hours and takes little to no effort to make!

Porridge is my ultimate superfood - and it doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive - double yay! You can use any local and in-season fruit or just go for frozen fruit to keep the price on the lower end. Moreover, you can also make your own oat milk which is zero-waste, cheap and easy or simply dillute it with water.




We all know turmeric is the magic powder of the food world – it's anti-infammatory and so incredibly versatile, working well in sweet and savoury dishes alike. This turmeric oatmeal is a sweet little morning delight to keep you full without breaking the budget!

- Make oatmeal according to your desired consistency (add mylk to make it thinner)

- Add half a teaspoon of turmeric and stir well

- Add a pinch of vanilla extract

- Sprinkle chia seeds, pumpkin seeds aor coconut shreds on top.

- Garnish with your fruit of choice: I went for kiwi and nectarine this time!

- Add a teaspoon of almond butter (or other nut butter of choice)

- Optional: sweeten with agave nectar or another sweetener of your choice!

* Pro tip: add just a pinch of black pepper to make sure your body digest turmeric better!



This one takes less than 5 minutes to put together and fills me up for hours. It’s an ultimate meal on busy mornings when I know my afternoon will be packed with activities and I want to make sure my energy levels stay up for a while!

- Make oatmeal to your desired consistency

- Add fresh or frozen blueberries and half a banana

- A handful of hazelnuts

- 1 tsp of chia seeds

- A tiny teaspoon of hemp protein powder

- Add a large spoon of peanut butter (make sure you go for the one with no added salt, sugar and palm oil)

- Add delicious goji berries

- Top it off with a pinch of Ceylon cinnamon




This one is not really a proper recipe – it’s just about throwing in every leftover that could possibly work in a porridge and stirring it through. I posted the yoghurt version of this recipe on my IG account a while ago and it got so much attention so here’s a quick breakdown of the ingredients.

- Fresh blueberries

- Cocoa nibs

- Chia seeds

- Hemp protein powder

- Roasted cashews


Like I mentioned above, all the recipes work well with plant-based yoghurt (soy or coconut) instead of oatmeal. This is a lighter and quicker version that works well as a small meal or a large snack in between meals.
