1/4 cup of dry quinoa, dry oats also work

1/2 cup water

1 small banana, 6 inches

1/4 cup frozen or fresh blueberries


Step 1:

Pour quinoa into a sauce pan with water. Bring to a boil and stir, add in 1/2 of the blueberries and half of the banana. Reduce heat to a simmer and cover the pot. Let quinoa sit for 15-20 minutes to absorb the water and get fluffy.

Step 2:

Mash the other half of the banana with a fork in a small bowl or on a plate.

Step 3:

When the quinoa is ready (no excess water in the pan, and visible “tails” on the quinoa), add the mashed banana and remaining blueberries.

Step 4:

Stir, allowing blueberries to thaw if needed. 

Tips & Tricks:

  • Try adding in peanut or almond butter for a nutty flavor and a little extra protein.
  • Instead of water, you can try using milk as a base.
  • If quinoa is not your thing, this recipe also works great with oatmeal.
