Creamed Banana Rice Polenta Porridge

This tasty creamed banana rice and polenta porridge recipe is a great vegan breakfast idea or dessert pudding.

It is high carb and low fat and would suit those following a raw till 4 or starch solution lifestyle – or anyone wanting a healthy plant based food alternative!

This recipe served 2 to 4 people – depending how hungry you are 🙂

The texture is amazing and has a very hearty and decadent feel to it. It is great served in a fancy bowl, cup or glass jar and best of all is quick and easy to make.

  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

  2. Place the sauce pan on a stove at high heat and bring to the boil while stirring regularly.
  3. Once boiling, turn down the heat to a simmer, place a lid on the pot and cook for a further 15 minutes.
  4. After 15 minutes remove the lid and add the polenta. Stir the polenta in thoroughly making sure that you squash any polenta clumps floating around the pan. If necessary turn the stove up to a medium heat to aid the polenta cooking process.

Recipe Notes

I love a sprinkle of nutmeg, cinnamon or cardamon over the top. For a sweet tooth drizzle some maple syrup or sprinkle some coconut sugar.

Its also yummy with a handful of fresh blue berries or raspberries mixed through.

    What a delicious comfort this is! I added a little more sweetener, some chopped walnuts and a few raisins. Loved it!

    Could you use brown rice instead of white?

      Yes, but you might need a little more liquid and also longer cooking time.

    I love your channel and food, They are great and I’m definitely trying this one, it looks so yummy! I’m from Brazil and here we make a lot of polenta, try dissolving in a little bit of water before putting into the pan, no clumps at all…
    Thank you!

    Hi Anja,
    This is the 1st time I’m going to cook polenta. Your recipe looks SO
    delicious. I’m a pescatarian, but totally respect your way too.

    I’m trying to lose about 15 pounds and I see that this is high in carbs.
    Any idea how calorific it is?

    I see you had a problem with your weight and it gives me great pleasure
    reading about you and your wonderful recipes. Is it possible to eat your
    wonderful breakfast/desert and lose weight?
    I need some help. lol.

    Regards from the U.K.

      Hi Barbara, I don’t count calories. I just eat whole plant based foods and no added oils. I eat until I’m full.If trying to lose weight just add more green salads and vegetables.
