  • 4 tbsp quinoa flakes
  • a handful of blueberries (I used frozen ones)
  • 1/2 banana (optional)
  • 2-3 brazil nuts (chopped)
  • a drizzle of date syrup (could use maple syrup instead)
  • a pinch of sea salt (brings all the flavours out)
  • 100 ml of water (if more liquid is needed add some plant based milk such as almond or coconut)
  • 1/2 tbsp organic cacao powder or 1/2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • Add water and quinoa flakes to the small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • Add salt and mix together. Cook on medium heat for a couple of minutes. Turn off the heat and let it rest for a few minutes, add more liquid if necessary.
  • Once cooked add to a bowl, add cacao powder and cinnamon and mix everything together.
  • Add blueberries on top and the rest of the ingredients.
  • Finish off by drizzling the meal with some date syrup.
