Simple Non Belly Busting Quinoa Dessert

I’m not feeling 100% today but I really want something sweet that doesn’t bust my diet. I don’t have much wiggle room this week coming from my cousins 30th Birthday which was perfectly named the BEST NIGHT EVER, lol, “Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez”. So I saved this recipe link to what sounds like a great quinoa dessert that seems simple enough and I just happen to have all the ingredients in the house #preparationisthekey

As usual, I changed the recipe when I started cooking it.

From the original recipe:

  • quinoa
  • pumpkin seeds
  • maple syrup
  • almond milk
  • coco dusted almonds

I added:

  • I cooked the quinoa with orange essence water (water with few pieces of oranges soaking for a while) and 2 pieces of orange with the rind
  • extra almond milk to cook the quinoa which will give extra creaminess
  • sunflower seeds
  • dried cherries
  • dash of Cinnamon

This recipe was really good and I give an A-. I tried to make it without the maple syrup but it was bland so I added a dash of it and power flavor explosion in my mouth. I can really see this recipe as a part of my regular routine for a great low calorie dessert. Its made with a bunch of ingredients that are always in my cabinet and it only took about 10 min to cook. Once I figure out some measurements for my own version I will post a recipe.

Next time options:

  • mash up a ripe banana
