Let me just have a moment...
Everyone this porridge is insane. I honestly can't believe that porridge could get any better!.. Maybe it's because my taste buds weren't expecting it. They are just used to the usual combos of PB + Choc and Apple Cinnamon...
You have to give this porridge a go.
It is just so exotic with the bitterness of the turmeric, the sweetness of slightly melted banana and the exploding tart raspberries.
Oh, and did I mention turmeric is anti-inflammatory! Perfect for dancers and athletes alike.
This porridge tastes absolutely wonderful and not to mention beautiful and would look absolutely great a weekend brunch.
