A simple and healthy quinoa pudding with 6 flavour options including chocolate, butterscotch, vanilla and coconut

5 from 1 reviews

Quinoa pudding is a deliciously creamy dessert, similar to tapioca or rice pudding. This simple and healthy recipe can be flavored with chocolate, butterscotch, and more! See the section above for 6 flavor options.

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup melted butter or margarine
  • 2 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup of honey or maple syrup (optional)

Instructions

  1. For a probiotic pudding, don’t add any milk and start with fermented quinoa instead. Otherwise, mix the milk into the cooked quinoa and allow it to soak while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. I have tried this recipe both ways, and it’s delicious.
  2. Puree the bananas until smooth.
  3. Mix the melted butter, vanilla, and salt into the pureed banana. Then add it to the soaking quinoa along with any additional flavors. See the section above for 6 flavor options. 
  4. Taste, and add honey or maple syrup to sweeten if necessary. 
  5. Allow the pudding to rest for at least 30 minutes so the quinoa can soak in the liquid. Serve either chilled or warm.

Notes

  • To avoid any bitter residue, I recommend soaking quinoa prior to cooking.
  • Red quinoa will hold its shape for a more rice-like texture. If you want a creamy pudding, use white quinoa.
  • For a perfectly smooth pudding, use an immersion blender and blend everything together until the pudding is thick and smooth.
