This soothing Açai Almond Porridge has it all: healthy fats, satiating fibers, creaminess, powerful antioxidants and crunchy toppings.

Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth and a warm porridge is not only extremely nutritious but also very soothing for all mucous membranes and especially the gut lining. Oats are a healthy source of carbs and fiber, including the powerful fiber beta-glucan. Oats are loaded with important vitamins, minerals and antioxidants such as manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, iron, zinc, folate, thiamin (Vitamin B1) and pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5). This means that oats are among the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat.

Another nutrient-dense food are açai berries which are native to the Amazonas and are considered a superfood for their high content of anthocyanins which give açai berries their deep purple colour and act as a powerful antioxidant in the body.

Along the oats and açai berries this porridge is packed with further healthy fats and nutrients from chia seeds, almonds and coconut flakes. Cinnamon is added for flavor and blood sugar control.
