Hold on. Before you start judging me why I used quinoa instead of chia seeds firstly read my comments below or try out this recipe straight away 🙂

Firstly, I do not like chia seeds and period. Mainly because it always get stuck between my teeth or somewhere in my mouth and also I am not a big fan of the slimy stuff. 🙂 Secondly, this quinoa pudding simply tastes better with white quinoa. It has a very nice texture, and the coconut milk goes well with the gentle taste of white quinoa and vanilla. And once you add a handful of fresh berries and some mint leaves on top, this pudding tastes better than any other one and it’s vegan.

Healthy quinoa pudding recipe, very easy to make.

Składniki

  • 2 cups canned coconut milk

  • 1 large vanilla bean

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar

  • pinch of salt

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa

  • 2 tablespoons of shredded coconut

  • 1 tablespoon of almond slices

  • a handful of fresh berries

Instrukcje

  • Place the quinoa into a fine mesh colander and rinse under running water for 30 seconds. Combine the quinoa and water in a pot (or a saucepan) and bring to boil. Then reduce the heat and cook the quinoa uncovered for 15-20 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed. When quinoa is done, remove from heat, cover, and let the quinoa steam for 5 minutes.
  • Cut the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Set aside the seeds and the pod. 
  • Combine the coconut milk, coconut sugar, salt, vanilla seeds and the pod in a pot and bring to a simmer. Add the cooked quinoa and stir. Reduce heat to low, cover the pot slightly, and cook for about 10 minutes stirring every few minutes. 
  • After a while, the milk will reduce and thicken. 
  • Remove the vanilla pod from the pot, remove the pot from the heat and set aside to cool slightly. 
  • Split the quinoa pudding into the bowls and place into the fridge to cool completely. 
  • Sprinkle each bowl with shredded coconut, sliced almonds and fresh berries on top.
