Porridge with Mango and Coconut

Recipe by Suli AutagavaiaCourse: BreakfastCuisine: Pasifika, EuropeanDifficulty: Easy


Cooking time




  • 100 ml coconut milk

  • 100 g porridge oats

  • pinch of salt

  • 2 tbsp. unsweetened coconut flakes

  • 50 g chopped mango (fresh or frozen)


  • Bring milk to a near boil in a medium saucepan over high heat
  • Stir in oats and salt, reduce heat to low, and simmer until oats are tender and creamy, for about 5 minutes.
  • Toast coconut flakes until golden in a small dry skillet over low heat for 2-3 minutes.
  • To serve, top porridge with coconut flakes and mango.


  • Notes: Wholegrain oats are less processed and make a hearty, delicious porridge. Other extras to make your breakfast super-nutritious: add in walnuts (great for omega-3) or blueberries (amazing little anti-oxidants!) or top with chia, hemp or linseed powder (all good for your daily omega-3). If you like porridge a little bit sweeter try finely chopping a date or dried fig and stirring that through.
