    Morning all,
    I've just made my usual boring porridge with water and sweetener and instead of using some of my milk choice I thought i'd be a bit brave and stirred a FF vanilla activia yoghurt in it.

    It was gorgeous!!!! :D

    I wasn't sure how it would turn out but I was so impressed - saved some of my milk too!!

    Has anyone else tried livening up their porridge?

    Thanks for the tip, I may try this as I just adore those activia vanilla yogurts, does it not give the porridge a bit of a tangy taste though?

    I like to make my porridge up and then stir in a whisked egg. The porridge is hot enough that it 'cooks' the egg and it makes it lovely and creamy plus the protein from the egg makes you fuller for longer! I then usually add some blueberries or blackberries to it too.

    I agree adding yoghurt to porridge is delicious. You can add chopped banana into the pan for while still cooking and it warms and softens it, yum.

    I top my porridge everyday with yoghurt and a bit of fruit but dont stir it through, i tend to make my porridge really thick.. infact you could probably plaster a wall with it but I love it this way , I find it keeps me fuller for longer

    The egg makes it almost custardly and creamy. I love it and that's the only way I have it now!

    I quite often have 28g of uncooked porridge oats and stir a couple of muller lights into it. The yoghurt swells the oats up and is a really filling breakfast - and no saucepans to wash up afterwards :p

    I have a recipe somewhere of cakes you make out of cooked porridge. Might have a fiddle with it and see if i can make it SW-friendly.
