Banana, Coconut and Turmeric Porridge

Winter can be a little drab, and one simple way to spice up life is to add a little something to your porridge. Turmeric is great because it contains so many health benefits. I was fortunate enough to find some fresh turmeric at the local markets and I just took it home and popped it into the freezer, grating it up when I need it. The coconut brings a little bit of the tropics to you, and of course, banana is just a staple – and a fruit reliably found throughout winter.


  • 1/3 c oats
  • 1 c boiling water
  • 1 banana
  • fresh turmeric
  • 1/3 coconut milk
  • 1 t cinnamon


  1. Mash banana and grate the turmeric.
  2. Cook everything on the stove – bring slowly to a boil.
  3. Serve with milk and extra fruit.
