Chocolate Banana Breakfast Quinoa
1/3 C of uncooked quinoa
1 C of reduced fat milk (lactose free if needed) or if using unsweetened almond milk
1 large banana
30g of chocolate protein powder
1 tsp of vanilla essence
1 tsp of honey
dash of salt
Add quinoa, milk and salt into a small pot and bring the mixture to the boil.
Once the mixture has boiled, turn the heat down and simmer for 10 minutes. Transfer the cooked quinoa into a bowl.
Mash the banana and add it to the quinoa, along with the honey, protein powder and vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
Add in an extra 1/4 C of milk and a couple more slices of banana if you wish to serve.
Makes 2 serves
Note: For those who cannot have normal/lactose free milk, you can swap it out for unsweetened almond milk. Increase the quinoa to 1/2 C and add an extra 1/2 C of water into the pan when boiling.
