Pinspired Recipe: Summer Porridge

It seems every time I get on Pinterest 
I see the same pin over and over, so I decided 
to finally bite the bullet and MAKE it! has a very popular pin for Summer Porridge, and the Mango Almond recipe called my name.  So after Gymboree, Hannah and I hit up the local Whole Foods and Trader Joe's for all the ingredients, and we made them just before bedtime so they'd be ready for breakfast.

This is an overnight No Cook recipe.   It's single serve, and you prepare it in a half pint jar so it's perfect for an on-the-go morning.

It would also be great for:
~ Hearty afternoon snack
~ Camping
~ Picnic Brunch
~ Get Well Gifts
(Can you imagine if someone brought you this after
getting home from having a baby/surgery/illness?!)

It's hearty, delicious, and easily customized to your palate - 
mango, apple, blueberry, even chocolate banana.
Get the recipes here:

Watch the video of Hannah and I preparing it.
Learn from my mistakes, and watch us taste test it for breakfast.

Let me know if YOU make some Summer Porridge.

    I found a slightly different version on Pinterest that I am planning on throwing together tonight. I'm just debating between strawberry banana and pumpkin spice. :)

  2. Well, Hannah seems to enjoy it! :) I haven't seen this yet, but now it's a must try to go along with our busy lives. Thanks!

  3. Just made some and created my own version (my add-ins were apples cinnemon and vanilla) delicious!
