Long before Quinoa was gaining popularity in my part of the world, the blogosphere were filled with recipes with Quinoa and I remember admiring the shakes and smoothies. I used to wonder how it would taste like.
After a while,when I saw a couple of packs at the store nearby,I almost fainted looking at the cost. And when Usha asked me if I wanted anything from the US when she came to India last winter, I shamelessly asked her for a pack of quinoa.
Finally I got to make this delicious shake and was able to find out how it tasted!
Cooked Quinoa- 1/4 cup
Banana-1,small, roughly chopped
Coconut Blossom sugar- 1 teaspoon
Coconut milk- 150ml [ add more if needed]
Garnish of your choice - I used corn flakes, tutti frutti,roasted,chopped almonds, raisins.
Take all the ingredients [except the garnish of course!] and blend till smooth. Serve immediately garnishes with your favorite crunchy toppings.
Makes a filling and healthy drink!!!
- Coconut milk can be replaced with almond milk or the regular milk.
- Similarly, regular sugar, unrefined cane sugar can be used instead of coconut blossom sugar.
