Ready for some pumpkin? This one makes you really happy. This creamy pumpkin porridge is super creamy because of pumpkin and coconut milk. Caramelised fruit on top gives so many sweetest and fresh berries gives zest and almost forgot about fresh crushed walnuts which gives you all fall vibes.
Few words about ingredients…
Oats – I used breakfast oats, they cook faster than rolled oats. There is a lot of different kinds of oats so be aware, if you use different than I used you can cook longer or shorter. Rolled oats needs to cook more so add as much water as need and cook until they are soft and creamy, than add milk.
Thick coconut milk from can – it makes your porridge super creamy and rich. You don’t want to skip this ingredient. You’ll need just 1tbsp for this recipe. The rest of thick coconut milk you can transfer from can to an airtight container and keep in the fridge for about 3 days.
Toppings – be creative! Use anything you like! Honestly for me the best are caramelised fruits with fresh berries and crushed walnuts. It’s given so much sweetest and cosy fall vibes. I also love sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice mix before eating.
