A chocolate-y breakfast cereal!

  • 1/2 c. quinoa, white, organic
  • 1 c. almond milk, unsweetened, organic
  • 1/2 c. water, purified
  • 1 dsh. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 1 banana, fresh, organic
  • 2 tsp. cacao powder, raw, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract, organic
  • 2 tsp. honey, raw, unfiltered, organic
  • 1/4 c. almond milk, unsweetened, organic

Combine quinoa, water, 1 cup almond milk, and sea salt to a boil in a small pot. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until all the liquid has been absorbed (about 10 minutes). Remove quinoa from stove and transfer to a bowl. Mash half of the banana. Add cacao powder, vanilla, and honey. Stir until evenly combined. Pour the remaining 1/4 cup of almond milk over quinoa, garnish with banana slices and mint (if desired), and enjoy!
