  • 40 g rolled porridge oats
  • 80 ml skimmed milk
  • 80 ml water
  • 1 handful cherries I used frozen
  • 5 pistachios
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tbsp fat free yogurt


  • Place the oats, water and milk in a saucepan, stir and heat over a medium heat. 
  • Bring to a simmer for 5 minutes, stirring so that you get a nice smooth porridge. After 5 minutes, you should have a smooth, thickish porridge.  If you like you porridge a little runnier, add a little more water and stir. Likewise,  if you like an even thicker porridge just carry on cooking until you get the consistency that you want. 
  • Spoon into a bowl. Add a tablespoon of fat free yogurt, some cherries and a sprinkling of pistachio nuts for crunch. Drizzle with a teaspoon of honey.
