Give your usual bowl of porridge a health boost and top it with our sweet redcurrant compote and fresh berries.


For the porridge:
  • 100g of porridge oats
  • 500ml milk or water
  • Handful of strawberries, quartered
  • Handful of raspberries, whole
For the redcurrant compote:
  • 100g redcurrants
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 1 orange juice and zest

For a different berry topping try, blackcurrant compote with fresh blueberries and raspberries.


  1. For the redcurrant compote: destalk the redcurrants, place in a small saucepan with the sugar, orange zest and juice and simmer on a low heat for 5 - 10 mins, or until the sugar has dissolved. Leave to cool slightly.
  2. For the porridge: combine the oats and water (or milk if you prefer it creamier) into a medium pan.
  3. Bring to the boil slowly, turn down the heat and simmer gently for 3 - 4 mins, stirring occasionally.
  4. Divide the porridge into 2 bowls, spoon the redcurrant compote on top and add the strawberries and raspberries to finish.
