Power yourself through the day with a healthy breakfast porridge that gets its pink hue from plums. Pearl barley adds great texture as well as releasing energy slowly
- 100g pearl barley
- 75g traditional oats
- 4 large or 8 small ripe red plums, stoned and chopped
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 4 x bio yoghurt
- 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
- STEP 1
Tip the barley and oats into a bowl, pour over 1-litre boiling water and stir well. Cover and leave to soak overnight.
- STEP 2
The next morning, tip the mixture into a pan and stir in the plums. Simmer for 15 mins, stirring frequently and adding a little water if necessary to get a consistency you like.
- STEP 3
Stir the vanilla into the yoghurt and serve on top of the porridge with the seeds sprinkled over.
