This refrigerator porridge recipe is very straightforward, but is a quick breakfast that is prepared the night before, ready for you to eat in the morning. I often have this after going to the gym, I’m usually in a rush to get ready so don’t have time to prepare something in the morning.

Refrigerator Porridge Ingredients

  • 30g Rolled Oats
  • 5g Chia Seeds
  • Squeeze of Agave Nectar
  • 3 tbsp plain vegan yoghurt
  • Rice Milk/Almond Milk/Any Plant Milk
  • Frozen Berries
  • Banana/Plum
  • Optional: Maple syrup, peanut/any nut butter


Mix up all of the ingredients except the banana/plum. It should be fairly thick, if it isn’t you can add more oats to thicken it. Cover it and put it in the fridge overnight. Next morning it should have thickened up quite a bit, give it a mix, add a little more agave nectar if you want to sweeten it more, then add either a chopped banana, plus, apple, pear etc. That’s it! Really straight forward, quick, and tasty.
