Raw Acai Porridge
Are you getting a little bit over the traditional acai bowls? Every cafe here in Sydney at least whips up their own. Well, if you want to change things a little bit I've got just the recipe for you.
Think acai bowl - but as a porridge - but not as any porridge - think acai bowl as a raw porridge. Wait what?
Oh. You guys, if you haven't had raw porridge before you should get on it right now. It's an absolutely amazing combination of porridge and a smoothie. Or that's pretty much how I'd describe this dish.
This is what the final result of my raw acai porridge looks like. It's so smooth in your mouth and incredibly satisfying. I could have this porridge of clouds every morning.
You can easily change the flavours as well - just use the oat + buckwheat groats + coconut as a base and then you can let your imagination be the limit.
Anyways, let's go on with the recipe, shall we?
- 1 cup oats
- 1/2 cup buckwheat groats
- 2 + 1 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 cup defrosted frozen berries
- 1 tbsp acai powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Start by soaking the oats and buckwheat groats overnight in 2 cups of coconut milk.
- In the morning add the soaked grains to a blender together with the other ingredients. Pour in the rest of the coconut milk and blend.
- The porridge is done once it's all smooth with no lumps.
I topped my bowl with blueberries, pomegranate seeds, strawberries, coconut flakes, cacao nibs and dried raspberries. It's a winning topping combo for sure.
