So you want a sweet breakfast, but aren’t sure how to get one with a little bit of protein in it? Let’s make some quinoa porridge! Quinoa contains all 9 essential amino acids, which makes it a complete protein - a really beneficial addition for anyone who is on a plant based diet.


  • 150g (5oz) rinsed quinoa

  • 200mL (half can) light coconut milk

  • 1 green apple

  • 1/2 sachet stevia

  • Cinnamon (to taste)

  • Nutmeg (to taste)

  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract

  • (optional - not included in macros) Pecans


  1. Cut up green apple

  2. Put saucepan on lowest heat and add coconut milk, quinoa, nutmeg, and vanilla extract

  3. Cook and stir until the quinoa has absorbed the coconut milk (this will take about 15mins)

  4. After the quinoa has been cooking for around 5 mins heat up a non-stick pan and add chopped green apple, 1/2 sachet of stevia and your preferred amount of cinnamon

  5. Stir the apple frequently

  6. Remove quinoa and apple from the stove at the same time (quinoa should’ve cooked for around 15, apple for around 10)

  7. Serve together and optional, serve with honey and pecans
