Plaintain Coconut Porridge

July 11, 2017
YUMMO! .
I'm currently enjoying a VERY yummy, nourishing breakfast  whipped up with what little ingredients I have in my pantry at the moment!
.
Because it tastes SO good, I'm sharing it with you, in case you're stuck in a breakfast rut & want to try something new 
.
When it comes to breakfast, you're literally breaking(your)fast, so it's important to eat foods that are delicious, filling, nourishing and 100% gut-friendly!
.
My super simple recipe (below) combines all of these elements PLUS a good dose of:
.
✨potassium
.
✨omega 3 fatty acids
.
✨beta carotene
.
✨protein
.
✨vitamin B6
.
✨vitamin C
.
✨dietary fibre
.
➕PLUS ➕
.
✨a super important gut-friendly ingredient called 'resistant starch' which stimulates the good bacteria in your gut, helping to maintain a healthy balance of the good guys to keep everything - including optimal pooping  in check!
.
Where does the magical resistant starch come from? The plantain of course! 
.
If you're unsure of what a plantain is, don't stress - you can almost always find one (or ten!) at your local asian market. Look for a banana with black splotches all over its skin - this is what a perfectly ripe plantain looks like (google & take a look!) 
.
Plantains begin green and are super hard to cut into. As they age, they soften which is the type needed for this recipe.
.
This yumminess is great hot or cold - if you're making & storing overnight, add more liquid in the morning to create a perfect porridge texture 
.
COCONUT PLANTAIN PORRIDGE
.
You need:
.
1 cup full fat organic coconut milk
.
3 tbs coconut flour
.
2 tbs desiccated coconut
.
1 tbs chia seed (or flax seed)
.
½ ripe plantain, mashed roughly
.
Toppings incl: sliced plantain, dried coconut, chia, cinnamon, crushed nuts/seeds (just not too many because there's already enough healthy fats in the porridge!)
.
You do:
.
In a small saucepan, combine coconut flour, shredded coconut, chia seed & milk. Stir over a medium heat to warm & thicken - won't take long!
.
Turn off heat, add mashed plantain. Stir/whisk/blend to arrive at desired consistency.
.
Add more milk (or water) if you want a more runny consistency.
.
Top with extras & enjoy
