‘A flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all’
The blooming cherry blossom is the prettiest stepping-stone to summer. Representing fragility and the beauty of life, cherry blossoms only last for a small fraction of time, but when in bloom, the dangling pink flower sky is a calming and magical sight. We went one quiet morning to enjoy a homemade raw porridge breakfast under the trees, sipped on lots of coffee and walked through the dropping petals right into a bridal shoot.
I think spring is the perfect time for raw porridge, just because of its ease and the soft subtle sweetness it endures. This takes under 10 minutes to make and always tastes delicious. Alter the sweetness to your liking with for instance vanilla extract, or keep it quite natural with just a bit of honey. Depending on your mood and season, you can play with the flavours accordingly. Add cinnamon/cloves during colder months or fresh summer berries/rhubarb when it’s warmer and pumpkin/apple works wonderfully during fall time.
- 1 dl oat flakes
- 1 dl oat or barley bran
- 1 dl crushed nuts of choice ( I used cashew, chia and sunflower seeds)
- 4 d blueberries
- 1-2 tablespoon organic honey (or brown sugar)
- 2-3dl oat milk or natural yogurt
Mix the bran, flakes and crushed nuts into a bowl. Add in the blueberries, honey and oat milk. Depending on how smooth you wish the consistency to be, crush the blueberries accordingly.
Mix well and let it sit in room temperature for at least 5 minutes.
