Cool down for the summer months!
It is strawberry season and berries have wonderful qualities we all can benefit from now in our nutrition! I am all addicted about those little, red berries…full of flavour and freshness!
I want to share one of my most favorite porridge summer recipes with you today. Find tipps for your dosha down below!
„Strawberry Coconut“ Porridge
½ cup gluten-free oats
½ cup of shredded coconut, unsweetened
2 Mejdool dates, soaked over night
3-4 cups of plant based milk
Pinch of Himalayan salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cardamom
1 handful of fresh strawberries, stems removed
1 tbsp natural maple syrup or agave juice
Chia seeds or flax seeds
How to make Strawberry Coconut Porridge:
Heat the plant milk and add the oats and salt. Stir until nicely cooked, on low heat for about 5 minutes. Chop the dates in small pieces. Add the spices, the shredded coconutand the dates and continue stirring.
Chop some strawberries in small cubes and add them for 2 minutes to your porridge, stir well and let them get warm a bit. If you need more creamy consistency, add more plant milk if needed.
Add the porridge to a serving bowl and top with fresh strawberries and the syrup. Sprinkle with flax seeds or chia seeds!
For the extra vacation feeling: Put your porridge into a coconut bowl and spoon it with a wooden spoon, lay down in a hammock and enjoy it there – to have all the tropical summer vibes you need!
