Breakfast Vibes ~ Porridge with caramelized bananas



Hey guys!

It's been a while, I know. I'm sorry.
I needed time to get settled in a new city after my move in September, needed to spend time with new friends, find a job, get uni life flowin' and over all, just create a life here. I hope you understand that blogging wasn't my no.1 priority during this important and exciting time of my life.
If you want to check out more frequent food posts, i encourage you to take a look at my Instagram (@mangoandcoconuts) and for even more frequent updates, check out my snapchat (@jasminbo) as well.

Okay, now. I'm almost done with my final exams for this first semester, which will, once completed, end in a lot of time to write, create & practice my photography.

This porridge up there is creamy, yummy, coconuty and delishhh. Could it get any better? Nah, don't think so.



Coconut Porridge with Caramelized Bananas

serves 1 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup oats 
  • 1 tbsp coconut flakes 
  • 1 drop coconut essence (optional) 
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup 
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp maca powder (optional) 
  • 1/2 tsp lucuma powder (optional) 
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or your favorite plant milk, you can also use coconut milk for an even creamier finish!) 
  • 1/2 cup water 

  • 1 banana, sliced in half & then quarters (8 little long pieces pieces) 
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar
  • a few pomegranate seeds

Method

  1. Combine all oatmeal ingredients in a small pot and bring to a boil. Stir frequently to prevent it from sticking to the bottom. 
  2. Reduce heat to low. 
  3. Meanwhile, cut your banana and sprinkle it with coconut sugar. 
  4. Put in the microwave for about 1-2 minutes. Alternatively, you could also use the "broiling" section in your oven and broil them for about 1 minute, but KEEP WATCHING THEM. 
  5. Don't forget to stir your oatmeal. 
  6. After about 5-7 minutes, it should be all ready and creamy. 
  7. Pour into a bowl, top with banana pieces and pomegranate seeds. 
  8. Enjoy!
