This fruit and nut quinoa breakfast is very easy to make. It’s delicious and full of awesome healthy nutrients. In addition, you can easily adapt it to your health and dietary preferences.
It can be very challenging to prepare a healthy breakfast on a busy morning. But if you have some left-over quinoa in your fridge, you can mix it with milk, fruits, and nuts and have a perfect breakfast ready in just a few minutes.
I made this fruit and nut quinoa breakfast with banana, pear, walnuts, chia seeds, and coconut milk. If you decide to customize it, here is a simple fruit and nut quinoa breakfast bowl formula:
1. Choose your favorite fruits or berries: apples, peaches, nectarines, oranges, mango, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries or whatever you have in your fridge.
2. Choose your favorite nuts. I used walnuts but cashews, hazelnuts, or almonds are totally awesome. Or you can also use seeds instead of nuts such as sunflower or pumpkin seeds.
3. Give yourself a boost of nutrients by adding chia, hemp, or ground flaxseeds.
4. Add your favorite non-dairy or cow’s milk.
5. If desired sweeten with a natural sweetener such as maple syrup, honey, or coconut sugar. You can also add a handful of raisins instead of the sweetener.
If you follow this fruit and nut quinoa breakfast formula, you will be able to make a healthy and delicious breakfast every day and never get tired of it.
