Slow Cooker Snowman and Reindeer Christmas Porridge
Where has this Autumn term gone? I can't believe that in a few weekends time we'll be putting up the Christmas tree and decorations. Sorry for the lack of recipes over the last few weeks, but when you're a mum of winter sports loving children this time of year is REALLY busy.

I decided to get creative in the kitchen last week and came up with this recipe for slow cooker Christmas porridge decorated as reindeer and snowmen using fresh fruit and pretzels. The porridge is made in the slow cooker over-night so this is a perfect no hassle breakfast for the kids on Christmas morning. You could even cut the fruit up the night before and leave it in the fridge.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING THE SLOW COOKER PORRIDGE

  • Add a pinch of cinnamon and grated orange zest to your slow cooker basin, to give it a festive kick.
  • The recipe can be doubled to feed a crowd.
  • Stir in a spoon of clotted cream when serving to make it extra luxurious.
  • Have a go at making different Christmassy designs on top. How about Santa or holly and ivy?
