Cold mornings call for a warm, hearty, cozy bowl of Detox Quinoa Oatmeal Porridge!
can regular or light coconut milk*
a pinch of salt
use gluten-free, if needed
juice or water - detox water is perfection in this
Optional for topping: banana slices
berries, coconut flakes, nuts, seeds, nut butter, maple syrup and/or honey for topping
Bring the coconut milk to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the quinoa and salt and cook for 15 minutes or so and until quinoa is fully cooked. Add the oats, detox water and cinnamon - cook for just a few more minutes to soften the oats.
Spoon porridge into cereal bowls and top with your favorites. Leftover porridge will keep in the fridge for a few days and is easily reheated on the stove or in the microwave. It will thicken in the fridge, so you may want to add a splash of coconut or almond milk to leftovers before serving.
* I used regular unsweetened organic coconut milk in my recipe and to calculate nutritional info.
** For a thicker porridge, only add about ½ cup of the detox water. For a thinner porridge, add the full cup. You may want to start with ½ cup and add more as needed and as the mixture soaks up more moisture.
