DIRECTIONS

In a small bowl, mix the curry powder and 2 T of the honey together and set aside.

In a medium saucepan, bring coconut milk, water, milk, remaining 2 T honey and salt to a gentle boil over medium-low heat.

Stir in oats. Simmer on low heat and stir occasionally for about 10 minutes. Oats should be soft and porridge should look cohesive and silky.

Eating it hot: scoop into 6 bowls and evenly distribute on top the cut dates, toasted coconut and a drizzle of curried honey.  

Eating it cold: scoop into a heat-proof container and place into the fridge. If you remove it from the fridge and it's firm, add more oat milk, or milk of choice, and stir to loosen. Scoop into bowls and evenly distribute on top of the cut dates, toasted coconut and a drizzle of curried honey.
