Ceremonial cacao infused porridge


Hello everyone. I have recently rediscovered the beauty of simple porridge oats for breakfast. So hearty, so easy, so healthy, so cheap, so why not? The slow release carbohydrates really set you up for a busy day ahead and the addition of fresh or frozen fruit on top adds to taste and nourishment. Weather using water, nut milk or a mixture of both below is a simple recipe for you to add your ceremonial cacao to your breakfast porridge. 

Ingredients from left to right

  • Bananas
  • Cinnamon
  • Porridge oats
  • Honey
  • Clean water
  • Chopping board
  • Ceremonial cacao
  • Finished bowl of porridge
  • Blueberries


Gently heat required amount of water or nut milk or mixture of both in a saucepan. Chop and add required amount of ceremonial cacao. Whisk until dissolved. Add required amount of porridge oats. At this stage I like to add the berries, be them fresh or frozen I like them heated, soft and releasing their juices. Stir and keep an eye on the pot for two minutes or so. Porridge burns and sticks to the pot quite easily do keep an eye on it. When ready transfer from pot to bowl place sliced bananas on top sprinkle with cinnamon and place a swirl of honey on top.


Frozen fruit or fresh fruit frozen is such a winner. Nearly all supermarkets or corner shops have a frozen fruit section these days with a variety of frozen fruit. Mix it up a bit. Try pineapple, mango, strawberries or passionfruit…. The list is endless really. Add vanilla, cinnamon, honey… whatever takes your fancy.


Not every ceremonial cacao recipe has to be based on spirituality, ancient hills, water frequency and concentrated essences. Not every ingredient has to be hand-picked an imported from a farm in Sri Lanka or made into a tincher by a shamanic practitioner. The reason why I have previously gone into so much detail about the ingredients and spices used is because I find the strength and power of the ingredients we have in our kitchen cabinets fascinating. The health benefits that lie within these ingredients really can make a difference to your mind heart and body.  Having said that you can make your ceremonial cacao with a handful of simple ingredients found in your local shop or supermarket. The reason why I experiment and add so much to my ceremonial cacao is to make it more interesting but let’s not forget the most interesting thing of all: the ceremonial cacao itself.
