Introduction

Adapted from a recipe seen on 101 Cookbooks, this is a spectacular, powerful boost to your morning whether you serve it warm or chill it down for a midday "pudding". Any berries can be used, I prefer strawberries or blueberries, or a mix!

    I used a sprinkle of dried ginger cause I didn't have fresh on hand. I thought this was very good and easy to make, and a nice change of pace for breakfast. - 11/9/08

    Hmmm. This sounds very good, but I think the calorie count is off? 1 svg of quinoa is 1/4 cup (dry) @ 172 cal & 2.8 g fat. The berries & honey will add some to the calorie count, but not 180! I think you're selling the nutrition info short on this one-I'm going to have to try it & see! :) - 1/11/10

    Where does the 4.9 g fat come in? - 3/8/09

    It's naturally present in the quinoa

    Good, but there was too much ginger for my tastes. I'll definitely try it again, though! - 7/7/08

  • Love this, but next time I'm going to add a lot less ginger and cinnamon. It was way too much for this. Also, when I added my food to the tracker, and ommited the honey, I came up with 216 calories, not 352.2 that this nutrition info gives. Not sure where all those calories are coming from??? - 1/13/15
