Delicious Green Banana Porridge.

I’ve been on a roll with green banana (matoke) recipes in recent days.

We grow green bananas back home too but they don’t taste as good as the ones here in Uganda. Wait, have I become biased? Just maybe.

Are they not beautiful?

I already have several green banana aka matoke recipes here on the blog so this is another tasty addition you can add to your breakfast recipe line up. This porridge is easy to make, delicious, healthy and filling.

Tip: Please ensure your bananas are still green and firm. We’re making porridge, not a smoothie 🤪

I’m really bad with quantities when it comes to porridge but this was enough for 4 hearty bowls.

Peel 3 large green bananas. Chop / slice them and put them in your blender.

Blend them with a cup of water…
They blend pretty easily. Then add to your sauce pan with some more water, but not too much.
Bring the mixture to a boil then reduce heat. It thickens as it simmers so keep stirring so it doesn’t burn or stick to the bottom.

Add a cup of coconut milk/ cream as well as a cinnamon stick to enhance flavour. Let it simmer for 15 – 20 minutes. Add water if it’s too thick and remember to keep a close eye and stir so it doesn’t stick to the bottom.

When it’s ready, ladle into your bowl and garnish.

I garnished with chia, honey and a small dollop of peanut butter. It was so tasty the kids asked for seconds.

Try it and let me know how it turns out!
