I get the same question all the time… quinoa for breakfast? And the answer is YES! It’s so delicious and, just like porridge, it keeps you full for hours and energised throughout your morning. This combination of ingredients packs in the protein as well, due to the combination of quinoa and almond butter. I’ve made it nice and sweet, the healthy way, to get that sweet-tooth fix.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
170g quinoa
600ml coconut milk, any plant-based milk
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the stewed plums

Quantity Ingredient
4 tablespoons almond butter, or any other nut butter you have to hand
6 medium plums
100g coconut palm sugar
240ml water
1 cinnamon stick

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
raw honey, for drizzling
desiccated coconut, for sprinkling

Method

  1. Combine the quinoa and coconut milk together in a medium saucepan and bring to the boil. Add the cinnamon and vanilla extract, cover and simmer on a low heat for 15–20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make the stewed plums. Cut the plums in half, remove the pits, then cut the plum halves into chunks. Combine the coconut palm sugar, 240ml water and cinnamon stick in saucepan over a medium to high heat and bring to the boil. Add the plums and continue to cook until the plums are tender. Once tender, use a fork to slightly mash.
  3. Once the quinoa is cooked but still a bit runny, put it in 4 bowls and stir in 1 tablespoon of almond butter per bowl. Top with the stewed plums, a drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of desiccated coconut.

Note

  • Plums are just as high in antioxidants and phytonutrients as blueberries. The important thing is to never peel your plums as the skin is where many of the antioxidants and phytonutrients are hiding.
