I usually make quinoa cereal in water with apples and cinnamon, but I wanted something more filling since I’m on this detox program. I modified the recipe to make it more simple, heavier, vegan, and no added sugar. I used blueberries because I went picking last weekend, and there’s nothing yummier than fresh picked fruit! You can substitute whichever fruit you want though. I love the combination below because the quinoa is crunchy, the almonds are nutty, and the blueberries explode in your mouth! This recipe will stay a few days in the fridge.
Ingredients1 cup quinoa 2 cups almond milk 1 tsp vanilla extract 1/8 tsp cinnamon 1/4 cup almonds (sliced, slivered, chopped, whatever you prefer) 1 cup blueberries
1. Bring the quinoa, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon to a boil. Turn the heat down to a simmer, cover, and cook for ~12 mins (or the amount of time specified on the quinoa you buy).
2. Remove from heat. Mix-in the almonds and blueberries. Serve hot or cold.
