Project Body Smart | Quinoa Porridge


Quinoa Porridge

Normally served for dinner, don’t overlook quinoa as a unique breakfast “cereal.” With eight grams of complete protein per cup, it helps fill the morning nutrient void. This is for one serving; do the math for more. Lower the fat with different milk.


  • 1/3 cup dry quinoa
  • 1/4 Medium Apple
  • 1 tbsp Golden Raisins
  • 1 tbsp Natural Almond Butter
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 1/4 tsp Cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon, Ground


  1. Add the quinoa, chopped apple, golden raisins, almond butter, whole milk, cardamom and ground cinnamon to a medium saucepan. 
  2. Cook the quinoa according to manufacturers directions (using milk, instead of water). 
  3. This dish can also be enjoyed warm or cold the next day.
