Hot Quinoa Drink

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sharon123

A popular breakfast beverage in South America, make this mixture at night and reheat in the morning. It's a thick, slightly sweet drink full of nutrients and protein from the quinoa. From the Whole Planet Foundation. I haven't tried this yet, so putting it here for safekeeping! It sounds good!

Top Review by Kitsune

Very good flavor. I used unsweetened Almond Breeze instead of the soymilk. It was far too thick to drink easily; even ticker than the smoothies I make. It was more like a porridge. I will make it again but only use one apple, that might help with the drink-ability. Still, a delicious way to start the day.
