Cocoa Orange Porridge

Did someone say chocolate orange porridge? This is my go-to breakfast. It’s like a dessert for breakfast: delicious, full of vitamins, and none of the bad stuff. It’s impossible to feel guilty eating it!


  • 100 g porridge oats
  • 400 ml soy milk
  • 1/2 orange (1 for more flavour)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp maca powder (optional)

How to:

  1.  Pour the porridge oats and milk into a hob on medium to low heat, stirring frequently.
  2. Cut the orange in half and squeeze it into a bowl or cup (you can use a juicer but I prefer to squeeze it by hand. So does my bank account.)
  3. Measure out the appropriate amounts of cocoa powder and maca powder and add it to the mixture when it starts to boil gently. Pour in the orange juice.
  4. When it boils, turn down the heat, stir, and let it simmer until it reaches a consistency you are happy with.
  5. Top with fruit and seeds.

You can throw away the pulp left from the orange or eat it not to waste it (I don’t always do that I’ll admit.) I topped my porridge with some flax seeds, chia seeds, raspberries, blueberries, goji berries and a banana.
