    This is wonderful! I used a bit more Splenda and dried tropical fruit instead of cranberries. A whole serving would be a great breakfast. I had a half of a serving as a dessert. - 2/14/10

    I made this recipe following it and got 8 1/2 cups instead of 6. It was delicious. Will enjoy this breakfast for a number of more mornings. - 11/18/18

    Very Good
    I'm new to cooking/eating Quinoa and found this recipe to be quite delicious. I did leave out the coconut as I don't care for that and just subtracted the calories etc. for that ingredient. This has become something I love to just take 1/2 serving for as a sweet snack. Thank you! - 3/23/12

    Does anyone know how many oz in a packet of stevia? I added a bit of grated orange zest. - 1/6/11
