  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 20 mins
  • Total Time: 25 mins
  • Yield: 4

INGREDIENTS

  • 3/4 cup dry quinoa
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk, plus more for topping
  • 1 date, chopped, or 1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Whatever toppings you want! (banana, blueberries, peanut butter, coconut flakes, walnuts, chia seeds, chocolate chips)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a medium saucepan, add quinoa and water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 13-15 minutes, until the quinoa is fluffy.
  2. Keep the heat on low. Add coconut milk, non-dairy milk, sweetener, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Stir to combine. Cook until the quinoa has absorbed most of the milk, but it is still pourable. Add more non-dairy milk, if needed.
  3. Pour some into a bowl and top with more non-dairy milk plus any toppings you want – fruit, nuts, nut butter…the possibilities are endless!
