Turmeric & Ginger Hot Porridge Winter Warmer

During the winter months we don’t get as much sunlight aka Vitamin D as we would like.

That’s why it’s important to eat varied and colourful plant based foods,  this means you are ingesting the chemical sunlight stored inside the plants, giving you life & energy!

Adding in nature’s superfoods on top such as ginger and turmeric where ever and whenever you can gives your immune system a boost. Just a few benefits of consuming ginger and turmeric is they are anti-viral, anti-bacterial, support the liver, gives you loads of anti-oxidants and reduces inflammation. Also great for digestion and warming your tummy up!

This recipe is so simple you can make it in 5 minutes.

Serves 1.


  • 4T rolled oats

  • 1T chia seeds

  • 1 scoop vegan protein powder (I love PranaOn – super high quality ingredients)

  • 1T chopped ginger (I like it hot!)

  • 1t chopped turmeric root (you can use 1t turmeric powder if you don’t have)

  • 1t cinnamon

  • 1/2C boiled hot filtered water

  • cracked black pepper

  • pinch salt

  • Toppings of your choice: Pictured I used toasted coconut flakes, sliced banana, sliced kiwifruit, blueberries, black sesame seeds, and a dollop of coconut yoghurt & tahini.


In a breakfast bowl, pop your oats and chia seeds together. In a blender add ginger and turmeric. Pour in hot water and blend until combined. Pour over oats & chia in bowl, add vegan protein powder and cinnamon and stir to combine.

While that is cooking (it literally takes 5 minutes to soften the oats) prepare your toppings however you like them. Serve. Enjoy your sunshine in a bowl!

Other great topping ideas: Ginger syrup, extra spices like clove, cardamom, star anise, chopped and toasted nuts and seeds. Figs, stewed pears or prunes. Yum!
