Recipe - Rude Health Horchata Porridge

Horchata is a creamy and sweet drink from the Spanish city of Valencia. Milk is the main ingredient, but can easily be replaced with a naturally sweet dairy-alternative such as Tiger Nut Drink. The flavour of the drink makes for a lovely fruity and almost tropical flavour when mixed with vanilla, banana and cinnamon in this Horchata inspired porridge.

A favourite pre-ride fuel.


  • 1/2 cup Rude Health Daily Oats
  • 1 cup Tiger Nut Drink (or ½ Tiger Nut Drink ½ water for less sweet porridge)
  • 1/2 ripe mashed banana
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract/powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Optional toppings:

  • Desiccated coconut
  • Dried apricots
  • Blueberries
  • Chopped walnuts
  • Nut butter


  1. Combine oats, mashed banana, cinnamon, vanilla and Tiger Nut Drink in a pan
  2. Simmer for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally until desired consistency
  3. Pour porridge into a bowl and add toppings of choice

Perfect for those cold winter mornings, when you are dreaming of the Mediterranean...
