Recipe makes 1 serving.
Food Group Servings
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
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.
Mash the other half of the banana with a fork in a small bowl or on a plate.
When the quinoa is ready (no excess water in the pan, and visible “tails” on the quinoa), add the mashed banana and remaining blueberries.
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.
