Almond Pear Porridge
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2
  • 2 large, firm pears, cored and cut into chunks
  • ⅔ cup / 12 fl oz. unsweetened thin coconut milk
  • 1 cup almond meal (not almond flour)
  • ¼ cup ground flax seed
  • 2 scoops vanilla whey
  • ¼ cup shredded coconut
  1. Put the pear chunks into the bottom of a blender with the coconut milk.
  2. Add the almond meal, flax seed, and vanilla whey.
  3. Blend on low just until all the ingredients are completely combined and there are no large pieces of pear left.
  4. Add the shredded coconut and blend on low just until the coconut is mixed through.
  5. Spoon into serving bowls and top with a little shredded coconut.
Do not over blend - this is not intended to be a smoothie. The texture is half of the appeal of this dish.
I find the pears add enough sweetness, but if you have a sweeter tooth, add xylitol (or equivalent) until your desired sweetness is reached.
This keeps well in sealed containers in the 'fridge so you can make a larger batch in advance and eat over several days if that works better with your schedule.
