Healthy Clean Eating Quinoa and Fruit Porridge | The Healthy Family and Home

 

Tip #1:  Use your favorite fruit or whatever you have on hand…peaches, blueberries, strawberries, goji berries, pineapples, bananas, etc.

Tip #2:  I’ve made mine with fresh, hot quinoa and served it warm and it was really good.  I’ve also made it with leftover quinoa and it was just as good.

Tip #3:  You can use whatever sweetener you’d like to sweeten it to your preference.  You could even make it low-sugar by using Stevia, or raw coconut crystals.

      Hi Melissa! Thanks so much! I really like this recipe because you can change it up to use whatever fruit you have on hand, or to customize it to what each person likes…which is very important with little ones because everyone always seems to want something different lol :)
