Carrot Cake Porridge (5)

This is one of my favourite ways to have porridge in the morning. It's got all my favourite flavours in it and is a fantastic way to get in an extra serve of vegetables - before the day has even started you're ahead!

If you used a microplane or very finely grate the carrot, the kiddies wouldn't even know they are eating veggies for breakfast. Evil I know. I'm totally mature though and prefer my to julienne my carrot.

Really? I never really thought of porridge not being a common thing in most parts of the world! It's just a great healthy breakfast choice :) my favourite by far.
