Peppermint Porridge

December 15, 2013 § 1 Comment


Hello and happy December, the official season for holiday-themed foods!


I apologize again for missing the last couple weeks (finals week 😦 ), but to make it up to you I will have two recipes up this week.

And I can promise that because I finally have a full kitchen again. Thank goodness.Image

This first recipe is a yummy, light holiday breakfast. It tastes exactly like peppermint cookie dough, but it’s totally healthy. If you leave the candy pieces off, of course. Image

Peppermint Porridge

3/4 cup canned lite coconut milk
