Pink Porridge Oats

Hello everyone! Happy new week!!!

Perhaps I have too much excitement for a Monday? I feel you. But the result of this delicious pink breakfast is making Monday all the more palatable. Because as the saying goes, life is better in PINK. I think that was Audrey Hepburn? Or maybe it was Victoria’s Secret’s marketing team, who knows.

What I do know is that this  Pink Porridge Oats is a quick and easy recipe that is both beautiful and delicious! There are only 5 ingredients for making this tasty breakfast porridge, and it can all be done under 10 minutes. It’s a surefire way to start your week wholesome and satiated.

A big bowl of porridge oats is one of my favourite breakfasts to have mid-week for this exact reason. It’s so fast, so easy and soooo satisfying. Plus, it’s one of those bowls you never tire of because there are always new ways to reinvent the wheel by adding different fruits and toppings. This time I’ve used pineapple and kiwi, I love these lighter refreshing fruits for Spring. I’ve also added a couple of cacao nibs and coconut shavings for a little crunch. I am in love with these two ingredients ATM to add some crunch to my morning. But other delicious toppings are some dried fruits (like apricots or figs), walnuts or pecans, and toasted buckwheat.

And of course, adding some pitaya powder to make it PINK (compliments of Rawnice) makes this bowl all the more fun! Of course, if you don’t have pink pitaya powder it’s not a make or break. This beautiful bowl of porridge is delicious just the same. As for the pink sprinkles in this bowl? That’s dried rose petals. Defs not a must for this recipe either, I merely sprinkled them on for stylistic reasons, so they were pretty enough to shoot.

All-in-all a bowl like this takes me only 10 minutes or less to throw together. Which is really all the time we want to spend in the kitchen come Monday morning, when we have a billion things on our mind, and an overflowing inbox that will require at least an hours worth of our time to sift through. Oh, by the way, if you’re an “eat breakfast at my desk” kind of gal this is a great recipe for you too.  Simply prep it before you go, while you’re changing, toss it in a tupperware, and eat at your desk. I’m sure your pretty pink bowl will be the office highlight for Monday Morning.

And that’s really all there is to this easy and delish pink porridge oats. In fact, it seemed almost too easy to merit sharing on the blog. I’m sometimes hesitant to share simple recipes like this because they seem far too obvious. But I’ve come to realize that these are actually the recipes most desired because everyone needs fast, easy and delicious recipe ideas that we can incorporate into our everyday. So here we have it – a tried and true porridge oats recipe that you can indulge in daily, in just 10 minutes or less.

Hope ya’ll are having a fab start to the week. xx
