Porridge Question...

#1
Ok not so much a question as speculation...

Had first porridge today (my CDC's sample as he is still waiting on delivery) and thought it was pretty scrummy (Would be better with a couple of spoons of sugar lol).

Anyway, noticed that the pack is labelled as Porridge Original...

Does this mean that in time we are going to have other flavoured porridges too do you think? Or am I reading too much in to this :D

Mmmm...Chocolate Porridge...

Toffee and walnut porridge... mmmmmm!!

Will also try adding a tablet sweetner and see if it makes it taste any different.

Think it was the fact Cambridge didn't know what to call it - so "porridge original" was their original name!!

Hi Folks

The composition of the porridge is different to that of the milkshakes. This allows for it to be put in the microwave for up to 1 minute.

However, the other products should not be put into a microwave for more than 15 seconds.

In the past we were allowed to microwave 1 pack a day to make a muffin, although this was discouraged in the main. After research this is no longer allowed.

So half porridge half milkshake would destroy the nutritional balance and take you below the recommended levels.

The only thing I can think of at the moment is you want to flavour the porridge is to add a little of the chocolate velvet, banana bliss or strawberry silk to the porridge after cooking. This should of course be from your daily allowance.

Alternatively a little of the water flavouring.

I'm hoping there will be more flavours too, but in the mean time, I will be adding half and half with a shake mixed in...just imagine, banana porridge, yum yum
Have you tried this out yet? Sounds like a good idea. I think I'll have a little experiment this evening with some of my clients:)

Great idea! Thanks mandie

My initial thought was also :jelous:, but you can get porridge with berries in so maybe it would be ok?

Melt a tablet of sweetener in the hot water you use for your porridge - makes all the difference to us with the sweet teeth! :p

hmm one thing i wondered if we could do was once porridge is cooked stir in a spoonful of powder from one of your days shakes. so it wont be heated up per say.......

anyone know if this would work?
