Morning Protein Boost - QUINOA BOWL - Karen Berrios

Morning Protein Boost – QUINOA BOWL


1/2 cup white quinoa

1 1/2 cup almond milk

2 tablespoons honey or yacon syrup (optional)

1 piece vanilla extract

1/2 cup strawberries

1/2 cup blueberries

2-3 cinnamon sticks

20 Apricot Seeds

Cinnamon powder to taste


Wash quinoa 3-4 times with filtered water. This step is essential to prevent a bitter taste in your quinoa.

Boil quinoa with almond milk for 15-20 minutes over low heat until it thickens. Then, put in the honey and cinnamon sticks. Make sure to keep an eye on your quinoa, as it will expand considerably from absorbing the almond milk.

Once ready, remove from heat, let stand, then serve. Dress it chopped strawberries, blueberries, and apricot seeds. Sprinkle cinnamon to taste, and enjoy!
