Instructions
  1. Bring the milk to a boil over medium heat, add the rinsed quinoa, return to a boil, cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer the quinoa for 15 minutes.
  2. Now for substitutions and alterations. You can use any kind of milk you like, I’ve made this with coconut milk and it was delicious. I added chia seeds to up the protein and for their omega-3 content, but you can omit them if you’d like. I like to use liquid stevia extract as my sweetener, you can sub honey, brown sugar, or just leave it out completely. The fruit can be anything you like or have on hand. I added a garnish of vanilla Greek yogurt for it’s probiotic quality (and it just tastes yummy), but if you’re trying to cut back on dairy, this can be omitted as well. Lastly, I added mint because it grows in our garden and my family and I love the flavor.
  3. Get creative and have fun with this breakfast, this recipe makes 4 servings so everyone can flavor theirs as they like. Once the quinoa is cooked, throw in the additions. Garnish and serve immediately with a little extra milk and enjoy!
