Banana Quinoa Pudding

The rain in Vancouver has been pretty intense the past few days. Lots of horizontal rain downpours which proved to be too much for the roof and we sprung a leak in our hallway. We snuggled in this morning for family time and read books and built towers out of blocks.

I saw a recipe on Weelicious earlier this week for Banana Quinoa Rice Pudding and knew it would be a hit for Hannah. I rarely ever post recipes that aren't my own, but this one was too tasty to not share! The only change I would make next time would be to cut back on the honey, I found it a little sweet - Matt thought it was perfect.

Banana Quinoa Rice Pudding
(Serves 4-6)

1 cup quinoa
1 14 oz tin of light coconut milk
1 cup milk
2 ripe bananas, mashed
3 tbsp honey
1/2 Tsp cinnamon

Place the quinoa in a strainer and rinse with water. Put quinoa, coconut milk and milk in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
 Stir in the remaining ingredients and cook over medium heat for 4-5 minutes stirring continuously until thickened.
Weelicious says to pour into individual ramekins and chill for 1-2 hours.

I served it warm with toasted slivered almonds and a sprinkle of cinnamon - so tasty and Hannah approved.
