Author Notes

This is the perfect alternative to your breakfast oats. Cooked quinoa simmered in almond milk creates a creamy and hearty breakfast porridge. Full of vitamins, fiber, and protein, this is an incredibly healthy and delicious meal. —Caitlin

What You'll Need
  • 1/4 quart quinoa
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • cinnamon
  1. The night before: In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil and add quinoa. Cover, reduce heat to simmer, and cook for 10 minutes. Turn off heat, but keep pot covered and allow to "cook" for an additional 10 minutes. Transfer to container with lid and place in refrigerator.
  2. In the morning: In a small saucepan over medium high heat, add almond milk. Once it begins to sizzle(like it's about to boil), add prepared quinoa and reduce heat to low. Stir occasionally until the almond milk is absorbed and becomes similar to the consistency of oatmeal(about 15 minutes). Remove from heat and transfer to bowl. Top with sliced banana and almond butter. Enjoy!
