Slippery Elm & Collagen Berry Porridge

Slippery Elm & Collagen Berry Porridge

Oh my goodness! I just created the most delicious, nutritious, gut-healing, anti-inflammatory, thick, creamy, warm & comforting breaky bowl EVER!!

I’ve been doing a lot of reading about slippery elm & I’m so impressed with all its benefits:

  • contains a substance that gels when mixed with water & coats & soothes the mouth, throat, stomach & intestines, which makes it beneficial for many digestive health issues, bloating, stomach cramps, sore throat & acid reflux.
  • rich in antioxidants, so it’s great for the skin, relieving inflammation in the body & boosting immunity
  • protects against ulcers & excessive acidity in the body because it causes reflux stimulation of nerves in the GI tract
  • lowers stress & anxiety due to phenolic compounds
  • cleanses excess waste from the colon

This porridge is a powerhouse because it also contains collagen, which promotes the growth of good bacteria, strengthens the gut lining, fights candida & leaky gut, boosts energy & muscle growth, provides protein, amino acids & beauty benefits!

YOU NEED:

  • 2 tbsp. organic slippery elm powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup homemade cashew milk
  • 1/2 tsp. Ceylon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. pure organic vanilla
  • 2 scoops Collagen Peptides
  • 1/3 cup frozen berries
  • OPTIONAL: 1 tsp. sweetener of choice

HOW?:

  • Add the slippery elm & water to a small skillet, heat over medium & stir until it thickens up.
  • Remove from the heat, add collagen & cashew milk & whisk over medium heat until all ingredients are incorporated.
  • Add the frozen berries & continue whisking gently until you get a porridge consistency.
  • Remove from the heat, stir, add toppings & enjoy! I added 1/4 banana, berries, Ceylon cinnamon & a drizzle of organic unsweetened coconut shreds.
  • ENJOY!
