There’s so much about this simple yet delicious vegan porridge recipe that makes it the perfect way to start the day. It has fibre-rich oats to reduce cholesterol, which is also a source of vegan protein and vegan calcium.

The hemp seeds are a complete protein and contain omega 3 fatty acids and an array of vitamins and minerals, especially magnesium and potassium.

Then the raspberries and strawberries are rich in vitamin C and naturally sweet, and the magnesium-rich dark chocolate tops it off.

If you want to substitute or add other berries on top, like blackberries, they still work with the flavour of the dark chocolate. Similarly, if you would like to use another dairy-free milk like oat or rice milk, you can substitute for the same amount.
