Chocolate Chia & Orange Porridge

September 29, 2017

This is a truly delicious way to start the day and, as the autumnal months are rolling in, the orange-chocolate combo feels extra cosy and warming. 

 

(Makes 3 servings of chia sauce) 

 

INGREDIENTS

 

2 tbsp cocoa powder

1-3 tsp of maple syrup

200ml (7 fl oz) almond or coconut milk (or any low-FODMAP plant milk you fancy)

4 tbsp chia seeds

 

(Makes 1 serving of porridge)

1 tsp root ginger, finely chopped (ground ginger power will taste great too)

1 tsp coconut oil

1/2 cup of rolled porridge oats

1 cup of water

A pinch of cinnamon 

sugar to taste and splash of plant milk if you want it creamier (optional)

 

1 medium orange, peeled and sliced

 

INSTRUCTIONS

 

The night before:

1. In a jar make a paste with the cocoa powder and a little of the plant milk.

2. Then stir in the rest of the milk, bit by bit, so it's all dissolved in. 

3. Add the maple syrup to a sweetness you like.

4. Stir in the chia seeds, cover the jar and place in the fridge. 

* This will keep for ~3 days and will make a great addition to porridge, desserts and even on toast.

 

In the morning:

1. Heat the coconut oil in a saucepan and sauté the ginger for 30 seconds.

2. Pour in the oats and the water.

3. Stir gently until thick and creamy. 

4. Stir in a pinch of ground cinnamon and any sugar/plant milk you want to taste.

5. Pour the porridge into a bowl, drizzle over a few tbsp of the chia pudding sauce and the sliced orange.

6. Enjoy and have a great morning!
