CINNAMON QUINOA PUDDING

November 24, 2013

I’m not one for breakfast foods. We know this. Today, I had a chicken caesar sandwich for breakfast, because most early morning foods rarely sound appetizing to me.

My sweet David loves rice pudding. Kind of weird. Kind of 80-year-old-man-ish. But, I aim to please. So, I wanted to try quinoa pudding. Breakfast? Dessert? Anything? You be the judge.

    I make this same recipe only with almond milk. You use a lot less sugar, if any at all. It has a great texture and reheats well. You may want to add a little more almond milk to get the consistency you like. You can even experiment with your favorite chocolate chips, nuts or fruit. Enjoy!

    Not knowing, I used cooked quinoa. I’m having to bring the heat up again to steam off the excess liquid. Tastes great, so far. Can’t wait for the final product.

  • I’m making this right now! Using raw honey and reducing milk by a 1/4 cup :)

  • Alicia

    Can you refrigerate and reheat?

  • Ashley Priddy

    I am trying to eliminate refined sugar from my diet what can I use in place of the sugar?

    • I put my reply in the general comments! Raw honey :)
