1 cup quinoa/ and or quinoa flakes
3 cups water
2 cups coconut milk (preferably light)
Small handful of nuts (eg- almonds), roughly chopped
Agave nectar or honey to sweeten
2 tbsp grated or shredded coconut
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tsp cinnamon
Rinse quinoa under cold water and drain.
Bring water to the boil in a saucepan and add quinoa.
Cook for about 15 minutes, until water is absorbed and grains are fluffy.
Cool, add coconut milk and refrigerate overnight. When ready to eat, reheat quinoa and coconut milk in a saucepan, stirring occasionally.
Add chopped banana and half the nuts. Add agave nectar or honey and stir. When hot, pour into a serving bowl, sprinkle with remaining nuts, grated coconut and chia seeds, and sprinkle with cinnamon.
You can also add berries or grated apple if desired.
