Berry Quinoa Breakfast Bowls Recipe
A healthy breakfast bowl packed with protein, antioxidants, vitamins, nutrients and fiber. These are easy to make and a great way to get your daily intake of fruit. You can make the quinoa ahead and keep it refrigerated (or frozen) for when you’re ready to eat for a quick breakfast on the go!
I’m on a breakfast bowl kick lately, usually I start my mornings with something savory but yesterday I was in the mood for something sweeter, so I made these instead. I cooked the quinoa in almond milk and cinnamon, then added some more warmed almond milk to my bowls when I was ready to eat. I topped mine with a touch of honey and hemp seeds but you can use pepitas, sunflower seeds or even nuts instead.
1/4 cup uncooked pre-washed quinoa, or rinse well under water
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tsp honey
1 medium banana, sliced
6 strawberries, sliced
1/2 cup blueberries
2 tsp hemp seeds, pepitas or nuts
1/4 cup warmed almond milk
Fill a small pot of almond milk, cinnamon and vanilla, bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, add quinoa, cover and cook on low until liquid evaporates, about 20 to 25 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
Divide the hot quinoa in 2 bowls, top each with sliced fruit and hemp seeds, drizzle with honey and add warm milk if desired.
