Perfect Winter Porridge

Porridge is so good for keeping you warm and feeling full, especially in winter! The problem I have found is that it can often taste bland and boring. After some experimenting with various ways of making the actual porridge and different toppings to compliment it, I think I may have cracked it.

With the addition of a little double cream, cinnamon, vanilla and a couple of strawberries to serve, there is no need for sugar in this recipe. It tastes naturally sweet and creamy. Best of all, it's balanced, warming and healthy. The perfect start for a winter's day!

This recipe serves 2.

The Porridge:
360g Porridge oats
240ml milk
10ml double cream
2 cinnamon sticks
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
(Stir often on a low heat for about 10 minutes,
add the double cream in the last few minutes.)

To Serve:
A selection of chopped nuts/ granola or both
(Remove cinnamon sticks before serving)
