Banana Cream Pie Quinoa Porridge

Still don't know what it is with me and breakfast. When I have a weekend morning, where I can relax and not feel rushed, I love to use my morning energy to create something yummy. 
Seems to start the day right. Don't you think?

This will not disappoint! Complete with Chia Seeds and Quinoa creating a protein packed superfood ensemble! 1 Cup of cooked Quinoa has only 222 calories, 8.14 grams of protein, and 3.4 grams of fat!

In this breakfast jumpstart porridge you have 12 grams of protein and 12 grams of fiber!  If you are an athlete wanting more protein - feel free to add some plant based protein powder!

Be creative with your toppings! Chopped pecans or walnuts, shredded coconut (toasted would be good!), cinnamon, and sliced bananas!

1 Cup Cooked Quinoa
1 mashed ripe banana
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 c Almond milk
1 Tbl Chia Seeds
Few Vanilla Stevia Drops
Pecans and unsweetened coconut for topping

Cook quinoa according to directions. Blend with remaining ingredients. 
Let sit a few minutes to thicken.
