This recipe is from the Beast Program.  Beast Breakfast Coconut Quinoa is a great recipe because quinoa is a grain like seed that is high in protein and balanced in essential amino acids.  When cooked, it’s light and fluffy with a mild, slightly nutty flavor.  This is a great alternative to oatmeal.

This recipe is from the Beast Program. You’ll need to cut your serving size in half unless following the Beast Program.

Ingredients

Beast Coconut Quinoa
Beast Coconut Quinoa

1/2 cup dry quinoa

1 cup water

1 pinch sea salt

1/4 cup canned coconut milk

1 to 2 teaspoons unfiltered raw honey

3/4 cup mixed berries or any fruit you choose.

1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds (but I used almonds)

Directions

Rinse quinoa and place water and salt in medium saucepan.  Bring to a boil and then reduce to low and boil gently, covered for 10-15 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed.

Remove from heat, add coconut milk and mix well.

Place in serving bowl; top with honey, berries and nuts or seeds.

Note:  I prepared the quinoa ahead of time in bulk and put it in the fridge for the week.  That way I didn’t have to wait until it cooks each morning.

Important NOTE~ this is a beast size serving.  I would typically use 1 cup of quinoa instead of the 2 cups this makes.  Cut everything in half for 1 person!!!  🙂
