  • 250g quinoa flakes (or White quinoa, cooked and drained)

  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste

Optional to Serve:

  • Biodynamic yoghurt
  • Fresh blueberries, sliced
  • Fresh raspberries

Optional:

  • For a vegan alternative, swap Greek yoghurt for coconut yoghurt.

Method:

  1. In a medium saucepan, heat apple juice over a gentle simmer, place quinoa in and stir for 1-2 minutes or until just softened. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  2. In an airtight container, place the apple, yoghurt, cinnamon and vanilla. Once cooled at juice and quinoa. Mix thoroughly before leaving in refrigerator, ideally overnight, but at least two hours.
  3. Serve with your favourite fruit, nuts, seeds, as well as honey and additional yoghurt if you desire.
