I can’t believe I’ve been under the weather for 3 weeks now. Yuck.
But it’s been SO nice having raw comfort food like my raw banana and oat porridge to keep me going.
And it’s so quick and easy…
- 1 banana
- 1 date
- 1 tbsp cashews (optional, makes it creamier)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 tsp flax meal (optional)
- 2 tbsp rolled oats
- maple syrup, sultanas, sliced banana (to serve, optional)
Blend the banana, date, cashews and water until warm, but not hot (around 2 minutes in a Vitamix). Add oats and flax and blend until smooth. Put the extra oats into the bottom of your pre-warmed breakfast bowl, pour blended porridge over and stir. Leave to sit for 5 minutes or so to soak in (while you clean up).
Serving it warm is the key to making this nourishing on cold, snotty days, and pre-warming your bowls (finally, a use for my oven!) makes it even nicer. (Just make sure nothing gets TOO hot.)
Mmmmmm, warm and raw.
Maybe winter isn’t so bad after all.
