I didn't mind this, but it just didn't wow me. I found the orange blossom water to be a little overpowering, so I added a little almond extract and that helped a bit. It also seemed runnier than I prefer - next time, I would reduce the liquid by a cup. The only change I made is I used 1 tsp of cinnamon as I was out of cinnamon sticks. Made for ZWT #6!

first let me say i LOVE almond milk, and i wont no have tried it if not for this recipe im not certain about quinoa i would like to try this recipe with plain rice . it tastes better cold to me but as i said try almond milk its wicked good zaar tour 6 it seemed to take more than 12 minutes for the quinoa to soften up to be fair ive never used it before and this was still a nice recipe
