Summer Quinoa Breakfast Bowl
These Summer Quinoa Breakfast Bowls are my favorite! Served as a warm cereal topped with fresh fruit and a drizzle of honey. A healthy protein packed breakfast.
I cook the quinoa in almond milk sweetened with just a touch of brown sugar (you can use any sweetener or omit if you wish) and serve it with extra warmed milk on the side. That’s just my preference, if you prefer your cereal thicker you can add less milk. Using almond milk makes this a great dairy-free, gluten-free breakfast option for people with allergies.
