Jamaican Plantain Porridge

Almost as good as my grandmas 😉


About 1lb green plantains, washed peeled, and sliced in 1-inch pieces.

3 cups water
1 stick cinnamon bark
Pinch of salt
1 2/3 -cup coconut cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup unsweetened almond milk 1
1⁄2 tbsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. nutmeg


Place water and plantain in a blender and pulse until blended into a smooth puree. Pour the puree into a pot with cinnamon and turn on the stove to a low heat. Keep stirring to avoid clumping.


Stir in salt. Add coconut cream and stir consistently for about 10-15 minutes.


Add almond milk, vanilla, nutmeg and sugar, and continue to stir. Let cook an additional 20-25 minutes, constantly stirring.


Let cool, and enjoy!
