Prep and cooking time: 30 min

juice of 1 coconut

2 cups creamy porridge mix

½ cup wholemeal oats

½ cup dried mango, thinly sliced

2 tbsp quinoa

2 tbsp chia seeds

3 cardamom pods, seeds removed

700ml milk

300ml coconut cream 

1 cup apple juice

Porridge Topping

flesh of ¼ coconut

½ cup dried mango, thinly sliced

1 x 400g can mango pieces,

drained and sliced

½ cup unsalted pistachios, coarsely crushed 

100ml coconut cream

To prepare coconut, use a sharp instrument such as a nail to punch out 3 holes. Drain coconut juice. 

In a large saucepan, combine all dry ingredients. Add a pinch of salt. Cover with liquid ingredients and cook over a low heat until porridge is creamy and thick and begins to bubble. 

Allow to cool, then divide porridge between 4 small bowls. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.

Meanwhile, to make porridge topping, roast drained coconut over an open flame until coconut shell splits. Allow to cool, then peel off shell to get at toasted coconut flesh inside. 

Using a peeler, shave off curls of flesh and toast under the grill or in a hot oven until golden and fragrant. 

Layer all remaining ingredients and toasted coconut over chilled porridge and serve.
