Porridge serving suggestions

Here are 12 serving suggestions, but your imagination is your limit, so experiment and have some fun.


A moat of cold or warm milk (almond, dairy, coconut, oat, rice or soy) keeps things simple.


For those in a rush (or who want one!) pour an espresso or ½ a cappuccino over the cooked porridge.


A few sultanas and a sprinkle of nutmeg and you're done!


Sliced banana, a sprinkle of cinnamon and a teaspoon of brown sugar bring old-fashioned comfort.


Add slivered almonds and some freshly grated Granny Smith apple for something a little crunchy.


A wedge of honeycomb stuck in the middle can 'bee' a cute way to serve porridge to overnight guests.


Some pistachios go well with a sprinkle of cardamom and a drizzle of honey, maple syrup or apple concentrate.


A few chopped cashews and a chopped date with a sprinkling of ginger is a luscious combination.


Freshly grated ginger, shredded coconut, macadamias and honey make you feel you're in a tropical paradise.

Protein punch

A beaten egg (stirred through one minute before the end of stovetop cooking) is good for those looking for added protein. Sprinkle with cinnamon.


Any warm stewed fruit - especially rhubarb, plums or apple - is delicious dolloped on top.


For something naughty, grate chocolate on top and watch it melt into the porridge.

For something naughtier, stir through some chocolate buds or cacao nibs.

For something truly wicked, bury a square of Pana Chocolate or a Ferrero Rocher in the cooked porridge and watch (the)faces light up as breakfasters find their treasure.
