This recipe was inspired by the 10 Cent Diet’s Piña Colada Quinoa recipe that I came across a couple of months ago. I made one batch of this right after I found the recipe and ate it all week for breakfast. I then decided to experiment with some additional ingredients to see if I could up the nutritional value of the cereal even more. This is what I came up with.
- 1 cup quinoa, soaked
- 1 can coconut milk
- 1/2 cup pineapple juice
- 1 1/2 cups pineapple
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup toasted walnuts
- 1/2 cup toasted pecans
- 1/2 cup dried tart cherries
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 3 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon coconut sugar or maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- Soak the quinoa before preparing.
- Once the quinoa is soaked and rinsed, bring it, the coconut milk, and pineapple juice to a boil in a medium saucepan.
- Cover with a tight lid, lower the heat and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed and the quinoa is tender.
- Remove from the heat and stir in the rest of the ingredients.
- Serve warm or cold — It is delicious both ways. If you want a little extra pizazz, you can top it with some dried fruit cereal topping.
