Who said decadence can’t be for breakfast? Or quinoa, for that matter? Banana and stevia bring a luscious sweetness to this simple morning cereal which, flavored with chocolate and vanilla, will easily become a favorite on chilly autumn mornings.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup raw quinoa
  • 1 cup + 1/4 cup unsweetened, plain almond milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Dash of sea salt
  • 1 banana, 1/2 mashed, 1/2 cut into slices
  • 1 packet stevia
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Bring 1/2 cup of quinoa, 1/2 cup water, 1 cup almond milk and dash of sea salt to a boil in a small pot.
  2. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until all the liquid has been absorbed (about 10 minutes).
