“Quinoa con leche” recipe

Quinoa and milk.

This is a delicious quinoa and milk recipe. Make it into a sweet dessert or healthy breakfast.

Use Organic or non GMO ingredients for a healthier recipe.


  1. 4 cups of water

  2. A pinch of sea salt

  3. 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon or 1 stick

  4. 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract or stick

  5. 2 cups of quinoa

  6. 1 cup 1/2 of almonds or other nut/nut’s

  7. 2 cups of coconut milk

  8. 1 or 2 cups of whole organic milk, your choice. 

  9. Brown sugar.

Amount of sugar desired. 2 tablespoons is what I use if I want to sweeten as dessert. Or I sweeten my own portion when served. 

(You could add 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and/or raisins/cranberries/goji berries when adding the cinnamon for an even healthier bowl)

Like an “Arroz con leche.”
