I’m a huge porridge fan – it’s a great way to set you up with lots of long-lasting energy.

This recipe is very low in sugar, too – I find when I add cinnamon to porridge it naturally sweetens it, while the lovely berries kind of just pop when you eat them.

Remember, when it comes to beauty and skin support, refined sugar is the enemy and antioxidants and collagen are the superheroes, so this meal has been designed to give you loads of beautifying goodness. Collagen is responsible for plumping and firming the skin, so that’s what we’re looking for here!

Lola Berry’s Three berry collagen-boosting porridge

  • 2 cups (200 g) almond meal

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • pinch of salt flakes

  • 1 tablespoon maca powder

  • 2 cups (500 ml) coconut milk

  • 1/2 cup (60 g) fresh or frozen raspberries

  • 1/2 cup (75 g) fresh or frozen strawberries, quartered

  • 2–3 drops of stevia (optional)

  • 1/2 cup (80 g) blueberries

  • handful of chopped macadamia nuts, to serve

  • mint leaves, to serve

TIP

If you’re really craving sweetness (or if you’re only

just starting to cut sugar out of your diet) adding a few

drops of stevia is a great way to sweeten this up without

actually adding sugar or having an impact on your blood-glucose levels.

 

Heat the almond meal, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, maca and coconut milk in a small saucepan over a medium heat.

Slowly bring to the boil, stirring continuously. Boil for 1 minute, then reduce the heat and simmer for another 2 minutes. Add the raspberries and strawberries and cook for 1 minute more (or 2 minutes if using frozen berries).

Taste and, if you’d like it sweeter, stir in a few drops of stevia.

Divide the porridge between two bowls, top with the fresh blueberries and macadamia nuts and scatter with a few torn mint leaves. Tuck on in.
