Not sure I fancy the idea of combining bananas and porridge....

Breakfast is a real struggle if you're not a fan of bananas - they seem to be an alternative to everything. I'd try this without the banana, though I suspect I'd be hungry sooner.

Almond milk and porridge is mmmmmmm, and shaving dark chocolate on it - what a great way to encourage my children to have it !!
