Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup non-diary milk I used unsweetened vanilla cashew milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 Tablespoons cacao nibs
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup or to taste
  • 2 cups chopped fresh fruit bananas, pineapple, cantaloupe, blueberries, watermelon, honeydew and mango

Instructions

  • Rinse and drain quinoa.
  • Place water, almond milk and quinoa into a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, add cinnamon, vanilla and sea salt. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed. Watch the pot carefully because it has a tendency to want to boil over. Remove from heat and let pot sit, covered for 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove lid and fluff quinoa before portioning into two bowls. Top with cacao nibs, fresh fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup. You can also add additional milk if you want more moisture.
