FIVE GIRLS RAW: Coconut Parsnip Porridge with Mango

It’s an extra-rested Ashleigh here to say hello. I have this week off of work with the kids, and decided to use some of that spare time to whip up dinner for the roomies. On the menu: Cucumber Avocado Rolls, Coconut Parsnip Porridge with Mango, and Lemon Tart for dessert. It was a lot of prep work, but I really love spending free time in the kitchen (when I have it). And a sunny afternoon grocery trip with my kid sister was the perfect start to a few hours off.



– 2 Jicama, peeled and cubed

– 3 large parsnips, peeled and cubed

– 4 cups homemade coconut milk**

– 2 limes

– 1 inch fresh ginger

– 2 green mango

– 2 red bell peppers (optional)

– fresh mint (optional)

** Coconut milk can easily be made at home by blending the meat and liquid of a young thai coconut.


1. Pulse jicama in a food processor until rice-like. Transfer to a mesh bag or cheesecloth and ring out extra moisture. Set aside.

2. Pulse parsnips in a food processor until rice-like. Transfer to a large bowl and combine with jicama “rice”.

3. Dice up mango, bell pepper or any other desired toppings (fresh corn, cucumber, green apple). Set to one side.

4. In a blender, blend coconut milk with the juice of 2 limes, grated ginger as desires, and sea salt to taste. A few tablespoons of a sweetener of your choice is optional.

5. Divide “rice” into bowls. Pour coconut milk generously into each bowl. Add diced fruit/vegetables.

6. Top with finely chopped fresh mint and serve!

This one would be a great summer morning breakfast topped with berries or banana. Enjoy and think of us as we plug along into Day 26.
