• 70g taste the different porridge oats
  • 260ml sainsbury's sweetened fresh soya milk
  • 40ml alpro soya single cream
  • liberal sprinkling of cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp of clover set honey
  • 80g alpro soya yoghurt
  • homemade blackberry jam

So a while ago, I posted a ‘best vegan porridge’ recipe (one of the most commented on posts, people have VIEWS about porridge), but not being one to rest on any laurels, I have a new current version of that recipe, one that gets me out of bed of a morning WITHOUT FAIL. It’s not strictly vegan now with the honey instead of sugar to sweeten, but replace it with a similar amount of maple syrup (mm) and you’re sorted! Highly recommend the blackberry and apple jam recipe on here to go with it, too, almost like crumble! Also, to reiterate from the previous posts, it really is important to pay attention to the kind of soya milk you use – they all vary so widely in manner and amount of sweetening, that they can taste wildly different. If you’re using a different favourite brand, then pay attention to which flavours and amount of sweetening in the honey and spices might work better. For example alpro soya’s sweetened soya milk is very vanilla-y, so you might want a sharper jam to go with it, or if you wanted to use hazlenut milk maybe a spot of nutella instead of jam might be lovely? All worth bearing in mind, anyway.
