Quinoa is usually served in savory dishes, but it also makes a wonderful breakfast cereal. It’s gluten-free, high in protein and perfect for taking a break from your oatmeal routine. For this recipe, instead of cooking quinoa in water with a pinch of salt, you’re going to cook the quinoa in almond milk and then add honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Embrace quinoa’s sweet side with this creamy breakfast quinoa with banana and mango. It’s totally healthy, super delicious and, in our opinion, the new breakfast of champions!
