Prep Time

5 minutes

Cooking Time

10 minutes



Recipe Ingredients

  • 175g SPAR Oats
  • 250ml SPAR Fat Free Milk
  • 500 ml water
  • 400ml can SPAR Coconut Milk Lite
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) Soft light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) ground cinnamon
  • a good grating of nutmeg, plus extra to serve
  • pinch of salt

For the compote

  • 3 tablespoon (45 ml) light soft brown sugar
  • 3 oranges, peeled and sliced
  • 200g fresh or frozen mixed berries

Recipe Method

  1. Mix the oats, milk, coconut milk, sugar, spices and a pinch of salt in a saucepan. Set over a low heat and cook for about 10 mins, stirring every now and then to prevent the porridge from sticking, until it’s thick and creamy – add a splash more milk if you like it thinner.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the compote. Put the sugar and 2 tablespoons of water in a frying pan and heat to dissolve the sugar. Once bubbling, add the oranges and berries. Stir, then turn up the heat and leave to bubble for a few minutes until most of the liquid evaporates and the compote becomes thick and sticky.
  3. To serve, spoon the porridge into bowls, top with the orange & berry compote and an extra grating of nutmeg.
