Chocolate Quinoa Bowl

Chocolate Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

My favorite supergrain gets a chocolaty makeover – and it is PERFECT for morning breakfasts!

Quinoa & Chocolate might not sound like the best combination at first, but trust me these two ingredients team up to make a delicious and nutritious recipe.

As always, I’ve only used simple and easy-to-find ingredients.

Quinoa takes quite a while to cook so we’ll be cooking them for at least 15-20 minutes over low heat. I used soy milk but you can use any dairy-free milk you like.

You can choose to use your fav fruits as toppings. I used a combination of banana, papaya, pomegranate and kiwi in mine. So colorful and delicious!
