Do you enjoy chocolate for breakfast? When I gave these to my friends at our local school market to try they said “really, chocolate this time of the morning?” From then on they were spreading the word and this became a favourite for many of our customers. I love it anytime of the day!
Quinoa is a great alternative to oats, it has a nutty texture and is gluten-free. With loads of beneficial nutrients including protein, fibre and Vitamin B, quinoa is definitely an essential food in my diet.
For this recipe you will need the following ingredients
- 1 tin coconut cream (425g)
- 4 tablespoons cacao
- 2 tablespoons coconut sugar/maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon date syrup
- 1 aniseed crushed
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup quinoa
All you need to do is…..
Place on ingredients in a saucepan and stir until combined. Place on the stove on a medium heat and gently bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for around 20 minutes until the liquid is mostly absorbed. Make sure you stir the chocolate quinoa a few times, to stop it sticking to the bottom! Take the saucepan off the heat and cover with a lid for 10 minutes. Now add some plant-based milk to the consistency you like.
I sometimes like it really running – like a porridge. And sometimes I like it it firm with yoghurt or ice cream with fruit and nuts. The chocolate quinoa will keep for a week in the fridge, in an airtight container. It will be firm when it is cold so I just add a little boiling water to soften the mixture.
I hope you enjoy this delicious and nutritious treat. Make sure you pop over to my Instagram @socialsweetseeds or leave a comment here to let me know which pudding you would prefer
