BERRY QUINOA BREAKFAST
Ingredients [Serves 4]
1 cup of quinoa
2 cups filtered water
½ cup almond or coconut milk
½ tsp. vanilla extract, alcohol free (I use Medicine Flower Vanilla, 5 drops)
1 cup blueberries
2 tbsp. raw almond butter
½ lemon juice, fresh squeezed
2 tbsp. unsweetened coconut flakes
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tbsp. seeds (or sliced raw almonds)
Fresh mint leaves (use as a garnish, desired amount)
Add the quinoa and 2 cups of water to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer, cover saucepan, and cook for 15 minutes or until all the water is absorbed.
Then add the almond milk, raw almond butter, and vanilla, and keep stirring for a couple of minutes until thoroughly mixed.
Remove from heat and add blueberries, seeds, chia seeds, and coconut flakes. Squeeze a little fresh lemon juice on top with some fresh mint leaves, serve, and enjoy!
