Breakfast Quinoa Cups

Here’s a FUN idea to get your weekend off to a GREAT start!

While we usually think of quinoa at other meals as a savory side dish – I think this complex carbohydrate is just the thing we require to give us that nice steady energy to start our day!

Quinoa is gluten-free, high in protein and one of the few plant foods that contain all nine essential amino acids.

It is also high in fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E and various beneficial antioxidants.

Yeah…ditch the breakfast cereal and try our quinoa breakfast cups one morning you’re feeling like stepping outside the norm. I think you’ll be happily surprised!

➡️ Rachel’s Notes:

➡️ You may use *any* seasonal fruit or berry in place of the kiwi/strawberry combination, so have some fun with that!

➡️I use unsweetened, grass-fed Greek yogurt (whatever is on sale) but coconut yogurt, or a non-dairy yogurt will work just as well.

➡️Try cottage cheese in place of the yogurt for another protein-packed breakfast or snack idea!Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 8-10 large strawberries, diced
  • 2 kiwi fruit, peeled and diced
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsps raw honey, or pure maple syrup
  • finely grated zest of 1 lime

Instructions:

Cook your quinoa according to package directions. Once quinoa is cooked, fluff with a fork and allow to cool completely.Meanwhile, dice your strawberries and kiwifruit into small pieces. Whisk together the yogurt, honey, and lime zest in a small bowl. Taste test and adjust to your liking, as sweetness factor is a personal preference.Place 4 small (6-ounce) glasses on a work surface, then add a spoonful of your lime yogurt into the bottom of each glass.Then add about 2 Tablespoons of your cooked quinoa to each glass, followed by about 2 Tablespoons of the diced strawberries and kiwi.Repeat layering in each glass equally, as shown, then sprinkle any additional fruit that is left over, on top. Serve immediately, or refrigerate up to an hour, then enjoy!
