Now that I've mastered instant pot porridge on a delayed start - How do you eat yours? What do you have on/mixed into it.

I'm bored of banana and blueberries.

My go to toppings are:
Raspberries with tiny drizzle of honey
Blueberries with flaked almonds
Blackberries with flaked almonds
Stewed pears
Stewed apple
Mixed berry compote
Or sometimes just honey
When I'm under the weather, I love a dollop of jam (blackcurrant is my favourite at the moment)

Grated carrot, banana, walnuts and cinnamon - trust me on the carrot
Frozen raspberries and almonds
Stewed apple and a splodge of yogurt

Nutella. Just a teaspoon mixed through.
Not the healthiest maybe, but sooooo good! Or I like a drizzle of honey and some chopped walnuts

Peanut butter and raspberry jam.

Oh yes to Nutella

@Phalarope that sounds bloody lovely, I imagine it tastes a little like carrot cake.

@LassoOfTruth I'm not a fan of Nutella, which is a shame because I see pictures on Instagram of chocolate-y porridge and it looks lush.

A teaspoon of peanut butter and a half a banana.
Some chia seeds with frozen berries.
Cinnamon and chopped apple.

Grated apple.

Ground almonds. Or chopped nuts.

And frozen raspberries or other berries. Mushed in to make it pink!

I don't eat porridge, but if you want it chocolatey and don't like Nutella, just use Cadbury's (or another brand) chocolate spread.

Just kidding grin I like raisins and brown sugar.

Cinnamon, nutmeg and honey is a favourite here

Unsalted peanut butter and mixed berries in porridge is a great combination. Not too savoury. Not too sweet!

tobee Mon 11-Nov-19 21:41:09

Sorry that was meant to be unsweetened peanut butter. Crunchy for preference!

thegreatestgiftthatipossess Mon 11-Nov-19 21:41:15

I mix some lemon curd in. Heavenly!

I read on here last year a spoonful of mince pie filling is delicious, I’ve never got round to trying it but adding it to my shopping list!
