- 1 cup cooked quinoa
- 2 cups milk (dairy or plant-based)
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup sweetener (such as honey, maple syrup, or sugar)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- Optional toppings: sliced bananas, berries, chopped nuts, or shredded coconut
- In a medium saucepan, combine the cooked quinoa, milk, cocoa powder, sweetener, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
- Place the saucepan over medium heat and stir the mixture continuously until it reaches a gentle simmer.
- Reduce the heat to low and let the mixture simmer gently for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. This will allow the flavors to meld and the pudding to thicken.
- Once the desired consistency is reached (similar to a pudding-like texture), remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
- Give the pudding a final stir and taste it to adjust the sweetness, adding more sweetener if desired.
- Divide the quinoa chocolate pudding into serving bowls or glasses. For an extra touch, you can layer the pudding with sliced bananas, berries, chopped nuts, or shredded coconut.
- Place the bowls or glasses in the refrigerator and let the pudding chill for at least 1-2 hours, or until it's nicely set.
- Before serving, you can garnish the quinoa chocolate pudding with additional toppings like fresh berries, a sprinkle of cocoa powder, or a drizzle of honey.
