In the morning, you deserve a pudding-like porridge that is perfect for easy grab-and-go breakfasts. I prefer these ones over the hot/stove-top oats. These are creamier, denser, and in my opinion, so much tastier.
There are a lot of recipes and methods for making these pudding-like porridges, so I’m not planning on reinventing them myself here. Instead, in this article, I’m going to show you how to make five of my favorite porridge recipes.
1. The Classic Vanilla Porridge
You can find the recipe here: The Classic Vanilla Porridge
This recipe is simple, easy, and delicious on its own; that’s why it is a perfect classic. If you’re a vanilla fan, you’ll love it! But this recipe is also good to know because it serves as a base to get imaginative. Mix in whatever fruit or seeds you like. Change up the milk. Leave out the sweetener. Make this recipe your own!
2. Chocolate Peanut Butter Porridge

Chocolate peanut butter porridge might be a more classic combination than the classic recipe! This is a great way to feel like you are getting a decadent dessert without actually eating a decadent dessert. And there is some sort of awesome chemical reaction that happens with the cocoa powder and the yogurt that makes it super fluffy and amazing.
3. Carrot Cake Porridge

Another example of a dessert you could totally eat for breakfast! This Carrot Cake porridge have all the flavor of a dense, sweet piece of carrot cake, with the added bonus of a ton of nutritional value!
4. Tropical Fruit Porridge
You can find the recipe here: Tropical Fruit Porridge
This is a porridge I make when it is 15 degrees outside, and I am dreaming of lounging on a beach somewhere. In most of these porridge recipes, you can get by with using whatever milk makes your heart happy, but I highly recommend using full-fat coconut milk. The flavor really helps with the whole tropical illusion.
5. Strawberry Cheesecake Porridge
You can find the recipe here: Strawberry Cheesecake Porridge
My sweet tooth loves recreating my favorite desserts in a healthy, eat-it-for-breakfast kind of way. I’m a big fan of the combo of strawberries and lemons, so this has a nice tart pucker thanks to the lemon zest and juice. If you aren’t as wild about lemon as I am, cut back on it or leave it out completely.
