Change up your morning routine with this warm, comforting Creamy Coconut Quinoa Oatmeal.
During this time of the year, I swap out my usual smoothies and cold cereal bowls for warm, comforting breakfast. I’ve been trying to use different grains in my oatmeal bowl and this one with quinoa and old fashioned oats has been a recent favorite.
Having a nice hearty bowl of quinoa oatmeal will fill you up with plenty of wholesome nutrients and keep you fueled all morning. Even better if you have leftover cooked quinoa — that’ll shorten the cooking time!
- ½ cup old fashioned oats
- ¼ cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
- ½ cup water
- ¾ cup coconut milk
- Pinch of salt
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 1½ tsp Truvia® Natural Sweetener Spoonable, more or less to taste
- Toppings: cinnamon, sliced strawberries, kiwi, coconut flakes, toasted nuts
- Combine oats, quinoa, water, coconut milk, and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.
- Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed and the texture is creamy, about 15 minutes. Stir in vanilla extract and Truvia® Natural Sweetener Spoonable.
- Divide into two bowls and serve warm with desired toppings.
And guess what? I’ve made this recipe better by using Truvia® Natural Sweetener Spoonable. One of my goals for 2017 is to lower my sugar intake, which means I have to be more careful about adding sugar in my beverages and meals. Truvia® is helping me cut back on the amount of sugar I use in my coffee, tea, and everyday recipes. Truvia® Natural Sweetener Spoonable is a zero-calorie, stevia-based sweetener, and one packet of Truvia® Natural Sweetener Spoonable provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar. It’s the natural sweetener choice for people looking to reduce calories, including people with diabetes and those looking to reduce sugar in their diets.
