Banana and Vanilla Bean Porridge

Serves 4 

This is a regular morning feature in our house.  It needs no attention once set to cook, so I usually throw the ingredients in the thermo and then go have a shower or get the kids ready for school.  By the time I'm finished, breakfast is ready.  Did I mention how much I love my thermomix? The ripe bananas infuse the porridge with a natural sweetness, so no extra sugar is needed (although of course can be added for those with a sweet tooth) and the vanilla bean adds not only a lovely flavour but also smells divine.  Top with some beautiful fresh berries, and it's the ultimate midweek winter breakfast. 


What's in it?

160g rolled oats 
550g skim milk
400g water
1 tbs vanilla bean paste or seeds from one scraped vanilla bean 
2 ripe medium bananas, sliced
1tbs flaked almonds
Fresh berries

How do I make it?

1. Place all ingredients in TM bowl and cook 11 mins / 90°C / reverse / speed 2.

2. Go have a shower, dress the kids, put on a load of washing. 

3. Serve immediately topped with any of fresh strawberries, blueberries or raspberries and some flaked almonds. 

6 ProPoints per serve.


For a single portion, use only 40g rolled oats, 150g skim milk and 100g water and cook 7 mins/90°C/reverse/speed 2.

If you like it a little sweeter, sprinkle each serve with 2tsp brown sugar or drizzle on 2tsp maple syrup for one more ProPoint.
