  1. Put the oats, lighter coconut milk, vanilla and a pinch of salt in a saucepan. Fill the empty tin with water and add to the pan. Simmer over a low heat for 4-6 mins, stirring, until you get a thick, creamy porridge. Stir in 1 tbsp maple syrup and half the blueberries, and simmer for 2-3 mins until the porridge is marbled with purple.
  2. Put the remaining blueberries in a bowl and crush lightly with a spoon. Stir in the lime zest and juice, chopped mint and remaining maple syrup. Serve the porridge with the blueberries and extra mint leaves, if you like.
