  • 1 cup quinoa 

  • 2 cups low-fat milk or light soy milk 

  • 1/3 cup raisins, finely chopped

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

  • 1 tablespoon pure floral honey 

  • 1 banana, sliced

  • 1/2 cup low-fat vanilla or soy yogurt 

  • 1/4 cup unsalted pistachios, finely chopped



  • Rinse the quinoa under cold water using a sieve. Put the rinsed quinoa and milk into a saucepan. Bring the milk to a boil, then reduce the heat to low.

  • After simmering for 5 minutes, add the raisins and cinnamon. Simmer until the liquid has been absorbed by the quinoa, 8-10 minutes. Add the honey and stir.

  • Put equal portions of the quinoa mixture into 4 small bowls along with the banana slices. Top with the yogurt, the pistachios, and a small amount of warm milk. Serve warm.
