Creamy Coconut Porridge

Creamy Coconut Porridge in a white fluted bowl topped with blueberries

Easy, dairy-free, delicious & full of nutrient goodies. If porridge can ever be fashionable and glamorous, then this is it.


  • 1/3 cup Quick Cook rolled oats - if you prefer to use traditional oats, follow the cooking instructions on the packet replacing the liquid with coconut milk
  • 1 cup coconut milk - the drinking variety (I used Rude Health Coconut Milk) + a little extra for topping the cooked porridge
  • A small handful of shredded coconut
  • A small handful of blueberries
  • A drizzle of maple syrup or a sprinkle of brown sugar


  1. Measure the oats and coconut milk into a large microwaveable bowl.
  2. Cook in the microwave on HIGH for 5 minutes - you may need to adjust the timing of this to suit the power of your microwave. Mine is 800W but is the best part of 20 years old, so perhaps not the fastest. The porridge will be creamy and thickened when it is ready.
  3. Once the porridge is cooked, tip it into a serving bowl and add as much extra coconut milk as you need, to create the consistency that you like.
  4. Now top with the toppings and enjoy.
