5 minute hot quinoa cereal
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 1 serving
  • Cereal:
  • 1 cup sweetened or unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk, 1% milk , or milk of choice
  • ⅓ cup quinoa flakes - you can find these flakes in the cereal section next to the oatmeal
  • Optional - ¼ cup goji berries, dried blueberries or cranberries
  • pinch of sea salt
  • Toppings:
  • peanut butter, almond butter, maple syrup, or honey - I adore topping this cereal with peanut butter, that's my go-to!
  • toasted walnuts or almonds
  • fresh fruit like strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, mango, peaches, sliced banana
  • granola
  • dried fruit like blueberries, goji berries, mulberries, cranberries, cherries
  • chia seed
  1. In a small to medium sized saucepan set over medium-high heat, bring the almond milk to a boil.
  2. When the milk comes to a boil, add in the ⅓ cup quinoa flakes, the ¼ cup goji berries (or dried blueberries) and a pinch of salt, turn off the heat and give the cereal a stir.
  3. Let the cereal sit for 3 minutes, (set your timer here) to allow the quinoa flakes to cook through.
  4. Give the cereal and give it a final stir. It will be a lot thicker and creamier.
  5. Ladle the cereal into a bowl and top with your favorite toppings! I love topping my cereal with fresh fruit in the summer, like strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, peaches, mango, you name it! I always blend in a big spoonful of peanut butter though! Amazing!
