Quinoa Banana Pudding

For dinner tonight I made Mama Pea's Veggie Stir Fry over Brown Rice from her Pealightful Plans: Week One. 

This meal was yummy and very filling!

For dessert I made...

Quinoa Banana Pudding
Adapted from All Recipes


  • 1 1/2 cups water

  • 3/4 cup quinoa

  • 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk 

  • 2 ripe bananas

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar  

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)



    Rinse and drain quinoa.  Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan over high heat, stirring occasionally.  Lower heat, cover, and simmer 15 minutes or until water is absorbed and quinoa is tender.   Remove from heat. 

      In a blender, combine milk, bananas, and sugar.  Blend until smooth.  Pour into saucepan with quinoa.  (I had to get a bigger pot to hold it all)

    Heat over medium heat for about 5 to 10 minutes or until mixture becomes thick and creamy. 

    Remove from heat.  Optional: add vanilla and cinnamon.  (I actually really liked the way it tasted plain)  

    Serve warm.  Enjoy!
