Quick and Tasty Summer Porridge Recipes to brighten your mornings!

We’ve all heard about how good a breakfast porridge makes, and it’s easy to see the appeal of a comforting bowl of porridge to warm up chilly winter mornings.

The recipe couldn’t be easier – water or milk and oats in a 2:1 ratio. But there’s no reason not to enjoy porridge in summer too! By changing up your toppings for seasonal fruits and fresh new flavour combinations, you can easily update this healthy start to the day to work all year round.

Here are 3 quick recipes you can whip up quickly, using just one bowl in the microwave (or in one pot on the hob if you prefer)! All are tasty and vegan-friendly, and are sure to keep you going ‘til lunch.


KitchenCraft Leaf Print & Terracotta Look Ceramic Bowl


Rhubard, Nectarine & Ginger with Coconut Yoghurt

Start by chopping up one stalk of rhubarb into small pieces, then adding this to your bowl with some hot water, maple syrup or honey, and ginger to taste. You can also add a dash of orange juice. Microwave this mixture for a minute, stir, and then another 30 seconds or so until it is stewed. Add in your oats to this mixture, along with a dash of choice of milk or substitute you like, and microwave for two minutes.

When the porridge is cooked, add in chopped nectarine, and finish with a dollop of coconut yoghurt. Feel free to top it with some nuts and seeds – pecans work especially well!

Chocolate & Hazelnuts with Summer Berries

If you’re craving Nutella but want something healthier – try out this chocolate hazelnut porridge!

Use hazelnut milk to soak your oats, and simply add in a teaspoon of cocoa powder before you put it on to cook. You can also add a few small pieces of very dark chocolate here, and let it melt in through the porridge as it cooks. Sweeten to taste with your preferred sweetener – maple syrup works well! Hazelnuts, blueberries and dried sour cherries make a delicious topping, along with some granola dusted with cocoa powder.


KitchenCraft Moroccan Style Yellow Stripe Ceramic Bowl


Earl Grey with Toasted Seeds & Almonds

So this porridge recipe is a little different to the others – instead of milk it uses cold earl grey tea! This recipe is great if you make a pot of tea that doesn’t get finished, or you wake up to find you’re out of milk! You can experiment with other types of tea too – fruity or other herbal varieties make for great porridge bases. Toast your seeds in advance and keep them in an airtight jar such as the ones from Kilner.

Simply add your tea to the oats as you would milk, and cook as normal. Sprinkle on toasted seeds and almonds, drizzle with honey or maple syrup, and enjoy!
