5 from 1 reviews

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


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


  1. For a probiotic pudding, skip adding the milk and start with fermented quinoa. Otherwise, mix the milk into the cooked quinoa and allow it to soak while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Puree the bananas until smooth.
  3. Mix the melted butter, vanilla and salt into the banana. Then add to the soaking quinoa along with any additional flavours. See the section above for 6 flavour 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.


  • 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 golden quinoa. For a perfectly smooth pudding, use an immersion blender and blend until the pudding is thick and smooth.
