  • First, start off by peeling your plantain.
  • Next, place the peeled plantain, oats, coconut milk and evaporated milk into your blender. Blend for 2-3 minutes until your mixture is very smooth.
  • Now begin boiling your water in a sauce pan with your cinnamon stick inside. Once it has reached the boiling point, add in your plantain mixtures from the blender and lower the heat to medium. It is very important to continue stirring throughout your cooking process to avoid lumps.
  • Add in your whole milk and sweetened condensed milk and stir well for about 2 minutes or until it begins to slightly bubble.
  • Next, add in your grated nutmeg, ground cinnamon and vanilla extract. Continue stirring for about another 10-12 minutes until your plantain porridge has thickened up.
  • Once your plantain porridge is ready, remove it from the heat, serve warm and enjoy!
