Creamy Coconut and Apricot Porridge


Having made Coronation Chicken last night I had some Coconut milk and apricots left over so I decided to incorporate them into my porridge.

I used;

1/3 cup Porridge oats (use 1/2 cup for hubby)

1/3 cup juice from the tinned apricots

1/3 cup coconut milk

1/3 cup water

3-4 apricot halves chopped

Mix together well and cook in the microwave for 2 minutes.

Remove and stir well and return for another 30 seconds

Repeat once or twice more depending on your microwave power (mines a 700watt) until creamy and steaming hot.

Stir well and enjoy.

I usually let mine sit for a few minutes to continue cooking and thicken up

You can adjust the quantities of liquid easily to taste by swapping the water for more coconut milk.  I did find that the juice makes it quite sweet (although very nice) so you may prefer to substitute that and just drizzle a little over the top before serving.

I have enough left for some tomorrow as well 😉
