Fruity Porridge (Microwave)

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Syrinx

A healthy, satisfying breakfast dish, which is ready in minutes and will keep hunger pangs at bay for hours. Depending on the fruit you use, the porridge will end up a strange purply-pink colour, but don't let that put you off - it will taste great!

This is very tasty. I made it with frozen strawberries and it was was a little runnier than I liked it, next time I will use less water or milk. Definitely a keeper.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 30 g rolled oats
  • 175 ml milk (I use semi-skimmed)
  • 80 g frozen berries (my mixture includes raspberries, cherries, blackcurrants and loganberries)


  1. Put the oats and milk into a large, wide bowl or jug (I use a 1-litre measuring jug).
  2. Microwave on medium power (which for my microwave is 600W) for 4 minutes, stirring half-way through.
  3. Stir in the frozen berries, then microwave on full power (for me, 1000W) for 1 minute.
  4. Stir well, and eat at once!
