Spiced Manuka Honey Porridge

Ingrdients:

1 tbsp Manuka Health Manuka Honey MGO 115

1 cup oats

2 cups almond milk

1 orange, zested and juiced

½ tsp cinnamon

4 cardamom pods

1 fig

1 tbsp buckinis

1 tbsp almond flakes

Syrup:

3 tbsp water

½ cup frozen blueberries

1 tbsp Manuka Health Manuka honey MGO 115

Method:

STEP 1: Place a saucepan on medium heat, then add almond milk, Manuka honey, orange zest and juice, cinnamon and cardamom pods. Once the milk starts to simmer, add oats in and stir quickly. Cook for five minutes until thick, stirring occasionally to help it from sticking to the pan. Adjust milk to your preferred consistency.

STEP 2: To make the syrup, place a small saucepan on medium heat and add water, frozen blueberries and Manuka honey. Using a wooden spoon, stir the blueberries and firm press on them so they release their juices. The mixture should turn purple and thicken up after 4-5 minutes.

STEP 3: To serve, divide the porridge between two bowls, then top with buckinis, almond flakes, a fig and a spoonful of blueberry syrup.

STEP 4: Enjoy!

STEP 3: Take the pan off the heat then add manuka honey. Strain the mixture through a sieve, then pour into a teapot with the sprigs of thyme.
