    I bet the quinoa tastes great cooked in coconut milk. The sweetness of the coconut milk would be a nice balance to the slightly bitter quinoa. I haven't had goji berries in a while, but I love the colour that they add to those photos!

    Just made this! Amazing! I added a little bit of canned pumpkin and pumpkin spice instead of the banana. Delicious!

    this is great – I recently switched from steel but oats in the AM to quinoa – I love it and top it with banana and some other stuff like raisins and dried cranberries. Super delicious and healthy.
