This hot and creamy dish was a great alternative to basic oatmeal and the punch of coconut flavor was fantastic!


  • 1 (13.5 ounce) can light coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup quinoa
  • 1 thoroughly mashed banana
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • A few small drops of coconut extract (optional for more coconut flavor)


  1. Combine coconut milk and quinoa in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Add mashed banana, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cover and reduce heat, allowing the quinoa to simmer for approximately 15 minutes, or until the coconut milk is absorbed by the quinoa.
  3. Stir in shredded coconut and coconut extract. Pour quinoa into bowls, topping it with nuts or fresh berries if desired.
