  1. Poached Pear
  2. Pour coconut water into a small-medium pot over high heat, bring to a boil. NOTE: judge to see if your pear will be covered enough in the water, if not, just pour a little more coconut water in. The pear doesn’t have to be completely submerged.
  3. Just before boiling point and a few bubbles begin to appear, reduce heat to a simmer and gently place the pear into the water.
  4. Poach pear, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until tender and soft, this will depend on how ripe your pear already was before poaching.
  5. Whilst pear is poaching, begin porridge.
  6. Porridge
  7. In another small-medium pot over high heat, add oats, coconut water and coconut water, mix well.
  8. Bring oats to a boil then reduce heat to medium on a fast simmer, cooking for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  9. Pour in coconut milk and honey (or sweetener of choice), mix through and continue cooking for a further 3-4 minutes or until oats have broken down and are cooked. Remove from heat.
  10. Once pear is tender and soft, remove from poaching liquid and place in the middle of a serving bowl.
  11. Carefully spoon porridge around the pear.
  12. Sprinkle over toppings and desired amount of maple syrup.
  13. Serve and enjoy!
Keep leftover coconut water poaching liquid - cool down and use it in smoothies, juices or for poaching again.
