I used mostly coconut milk... pecans or walnuts dates and coconut. cinnamon and some coconut sugar. most excellent and keeps well refrigerated for the following day. rinsing the quinoa well several times is key to avoid bitterness. Read More

I'm doing the Dr.Oz 48 hour detox cleanse and this is pretty much the breakfast.. Gotta say I dont care for it! I really though it would be ok because I really like quinoa salads but the texture and the prunes really turn me off. Might skip this tomorrow and just do the shakes all day!! Read More

this was the first time I used quinoa and I didn't like it...but reading more about quinoa I'm going to rinse it more then toast it (to hopefully cut the bitterness). this seems like it will be really good so I'm going to try it again! Read More
