A nutritious alternative to traditional Jamaican Cornmeal porridge that is free of added sugar and lower in saturated fat.



  • 25g fine or medium cornmeal
  • 225 almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

To top

  • Small handful raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon pomegranate seeds
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon milled flaxseeds
  • Pinch dessicated coconut (optional)


Combine cornmeal, almond milk, vanilla extract and ground cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Cook on low heat for 10 minutes, stirring continuously.

Tranfer to a serving bowl. Top with Greek yoghurt, raspberries, pomegranate seeds, pumpkin seeds and milled flaxseeds. Enjoy!


If you use medium or coarse cornmeal, you’ll need to cook for longer.

Dairy milk or another plant-based milk will work well in this recipe. However, the nutritional content will vary.
