Hello again and a Pumpkin, macadamia, coconut and chia porridge

Dear Readers. I am sincerely sorry it has been soo long since I have published a post. The past few months have been busy for me, moving to Byron Bay to continue healing, for change, to meet more like minded people and for the warmer climate.

There is soo much I need to fill you in on. New recipes, new information, new changes to my personal healing regime, new ideas on general health and on ME/CFS and its causes. Conveniently I do not have the internet where I am living so I am relying on the local library wifi which is slow and has a one hour limit, so bear with me.

Today I wanted to share with you a warming, sweet winter recipe I have created. It uses lovely steamed and pureed pumpkin, soaked macadamias and chia seeds, coconut flakes, cinnamon, stevia and your choice topping, whether that be yogurt, coconut cream kefir, tahini, coconut flakes or just a dashing of coconut milk.

Remember you can play around with this recipe, I blended some of the macadamias with water to make a milk consistency and then added the pumpkin, you can use canned coconut milk/cream instead.

Recipe: Pumpkin, macadamia, coconut and chia porridge


Approximately 1 cup of pureed pumpkin (I tend to steam a whole lot of pumpkin one evening and then use leftovers for breakfast whatever that may be.)

Approximately 10 whole Macadamias per person/serving soaked overnight

2 teaspoons of chia seeds

¼ cup of coconut shreds or flakes

Approximately 1 teaspoon of cinnamon (3/4 in recipe and ¼ to dust on after serving.)

Stevia to your desired sweetness

Approximately 3 tablespoon of water or coconut milk

Yogurt, kefir yogurt, tahini or coconut milk/cream to serve


Blend steamed pumpkin, cinnamon and stevia with water or coconut milk until smooth, add in macadamias and coconut shreds or flakes and pulse literally once or twice to mix and roughly chop. Pour into pan and warm up gently adding in the soaked chia seeds near the end.

Pour into a bowl and add a generous dashing of yogurt, kefir or your preferred topping, dust with cinnamon and enjoy!

You can also experiment with adding nutmeg, vanilla powder, raw honey and different nuts and seeds.

If you don’t have a blender you can always mash the pumpkin with a fork, and chop the macadamias and flakes with a knife! Enjoy!

  1. Amy! So glad you are back and are continuing to share your beautiful recipes and knowledge! I cannot wait until you open your own organic cafe with unlimited treats such as this on the menu. I’ll be making this one at home! Keep up the good work sweetdear. Peace xox


  2. This looks amazing!

    I too steam whole pumpkin cuts in one big go and use them to bump up my meals. Adding it to a decadent porridge is something I will have to try.



    • Thanks! It is yum. I knew I recognized your face, I am loving the health to glow tv! Fabulous work getting the message of health and how delicious it truly is out there! Xo


    • Yes I am sure it would Denise.. I eat fruit depending on how my gut is feeling and whether I am dealing with candida and parasites. Generally I do not tolerate much though. x
