Introducing the creamy, coconut-y and filling version of traditional oatmeal. This Coconut Quinoa Porridge checks off all the boxes! Using quinoa in a sweet recipe instead of savoury is sure to be a pleasant surprise.
If you have been around long enough to remember the first eBook I released with my friend, Kendall, you may recognize this recipe. We created it to mix up the breakfast game: by incorporating coconut milk it adds a different dimension to a breakfast bowl. Plus, the pairing of quinoa and coconut is a comforting combination that will quickly make its way to the top of your list.
All you need for this tasty breakfast is:
My favourite toppings are sliced banana, blueberries, crushed walnuts and a dollop of Greek yogurt. You can also add in some nut butter and extra coconut flakes to really bring home the coconut flavour.
Have you ever tried quinoa for breakfast before? It’s typically used as part of a savoury dish, salad or in place of rice. In this recipe the health benefits from just the quinoa include:
Don’t forget the toppings will add extra nutrients like protein, fiber and vitamins!
If your time is money and you don’t have 20 minutes to spare to make this Coconut Quinoa Porridge in the morning, don’t worry! You can make a big batch the night before and store it in the fridge overnight. In order to cook larger amounts increase the cook time by approximately 5 minutes. Feel free to also add a little extra coconut milk to the cooled porridge to achieve the desired texture.
By cooking it this way, you can prepare your breakfast in advance and save time and effort on your busy mornings! This method also gives you the flexibility to mix up the toppings each day, depending on your cravings!
