Berry & Brown Sugar Porridge

Serves 4

Cook Time12 min


  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup reduced fat milk
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 cups Creative Gourmet frozen Mixed Berries
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (or to taste) + extra for sprinkling
  • 3/4 cup light thickened cream


  1. Combine oats, water, milk, cinnamon and salt in a medium non-stick saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes until creamy and oats are tender.
  2. Gently fold through frozen berries and cook for about 2 minutes or until fruit is just defrosted. Stir in brown sugar (to taste) and cream. Spoon porridge into bowls. Sprinkle with a little extra brown sugar and serve.


  • Don’t use instant oats. If you like cinnamon, add an extra 1/4 tsp to the porridge.
  • The porridge is delicious topped with a spoonful of thick natural yoghurt.
  • Healthier option: Replace water and milk with skim milk, omit cream and use half brown sugar and half granulated sugar substitute. Saves 400kJ and 10g fat.
