Yields1 Serving

Ingredients:

  • 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

 

Preparation:

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the cooked quinoa, milk, cocoa powder, sweetener, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
  2. Place the saucepan over medium heat and stir the mixture continuously until it reaches a gentle simmer.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Give the pudding a final stir and taste it to adjust the sweetness, adding more sweetener if desired.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
