When it comes to chilly mornings, a steaming bowl of sweet porridge hits the spot.

Berries, apples, bananas, or no fruit at all. Nuts, seeds, or granola sprinkled on top. Regular, oat, or coconut milk. The options are endless!
We love the new Ancient Grains Porridge Mix from Dirty Clean Food. It's made in WA from 5 types of grains, all chock-full with vitamins, minerals, and fibre.
Here are 3 tasty variations to enjoy.

BLUEBERRY, VANILLA & COCONUT

You get a creamy, mildly sweet and super decadent porridge by cooking the grains with coconut milk and vanilla beans. Stir through fresh or frozen blueberries for a pop of flavour, colour and vitamin C.
