Pumpkin spice porridge is a fabulous way to supercharge your family’s morning. Pumpkin is rich in beta-carotene, potassium and vitamin C. The secret ingredient in this delicious and filling porridge recipe from 'Wholesome Child: Complete Nutrition Guide and Cookbook' is a sprinkle of anti-inflammatory cinnamon, which brings out the sweetness of the pumpkin and helps to balance those sweet sugar cravings.
Place oats, almond milk and water in a medium-sized saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about five minutes until thick and creamy.
Add pumpkin puree, cinnamon and vanilla and stir to combine.
Simmer on low heat for another two minutes.
Remove from heat, add coconut oil and stir through.
Allow to cool a little before serving.
Tip: Serve immediately, store in the fridge for up to four days or freeze for up to four months. For older children, add 1 tbs of maple syrup for extra sweetness if desired.
