Scary Persimon® and Blueberry Porridge

Halloween is quick becoming a big thing in the UK, and we as a family like to get on board with the festivities as much as possible! It can be tricky to get a nutritious breakfast in our little ones’ tummies because they can just be SO fussy. I love a nourishing bowl of hot porridge but my children tend to want a bit of sweetness added in… and to be honest so do I! By choosing Persimon® fruit, you know you’re going to be getting delicious juicy fruit chosen specially by farmers with a wealth of experience in the Ribera del Xuquer region. This divine recipe not only creates a yummy breakfast, but has some fun additions to get children in the Halloween spirit!

Preparation: 10 minutes

Cooking: 8 minutes

Serves 4         

Boo! Suitable for vegetarians

3 Spanish persimon®

200g high fibre porridge oats

1 litre oat milk or semi-skimmed milk

4tbsp low fat natural yogurt

8 blueberries

4tsp pumpkin seeds or mixed seeds

1 Chop one persimon® into chunks, removing the leafy stem. Puree in a blender. Cut the other persimon® into slices, removing the leafy stems.

2 Put the porridge oats into a saucepan with the milk and pureed persimon®. Heat, stirring constantly, until the porridge boils and thickens. Reduce the heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes, stirring.

3 Share the porridge between 4 serving bowls and level the surface. Top with the persimon® slices, yogurt, blueberries and mixed seeds, arranged to look like scary faces. Serve immediately.

Cook’s tip: If you’re vegan or dairy-intolerant, use oat milk or soya milk and a soya yogurt instead of dairy-based.
