As vibrant to see as it will make you feel inside, this porridge is jam-packed with energising antioxidant boosting berries and luscious red cherries. In fact, the dramatic colour is down to a pigment called anthocyanin, found within all the fruit in this recipe. What is so special about this pigment? Studies have shown that consuming it can help our bodies defence system to fight off disease. So not only is this a beautiful breakfast, it’s a superfood kick start too. A real win win.
And, to keep things dairy free, we’ve whipped up some of our favourite ‘oat cream’. Yep - not a single cow was involved in the making of it, so for the vegans amongst you - this is an awesome one for you to try.

Drizzle over some oat cream, and you’re done.
