High Protein Paleo Porridge
Serves: Makes 2 servings
Thanks to the addition of collagen peptides, a flavorless source of nutrient-dense protein, this comforting breakfast will fuel your day.
  • 2 cups prepared spaghetti squash from 1 large squash (learn how to make the perfect spaghetti squash here)
  • 1 cup full-fat canned coconut milk
  • ¼ cup finely shredded coconut
  • Coconut flour, if necessary
  • 4 scoops (1/2 cup) collagen peptides, available here
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract, optional
  • Coconut milk and cinnamon, if desired for serving
  1. Combine all ingredients except the coconut flour and collagen peptides in a saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer. Simmer for 8 minutes until slightly thickened.
  2. Add the collagen peptides. Use an immersion blender to process a couple of times to achieve an oatmeal-like texture. If the texture is not thick enough, add coconut flour, a tablespoon at a time, to thicken. If you would like a thinner texture, add more coconut milk.
  3. If desired, add the vanilla extract.
  4. Serve with additional coconut milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon, if desired.
The method with which you prepare the squash will affect the texture. I highly recommend this method, which creates non-mushy strands of spaghetti squash. Other methods trap more moisture in the squash. You can still make the recipe, but you may find the resulting porridge to be looser in texture. It will likely require the inclusion of some coconut flour to thicken it.
