Coconut Quinoa Porridge with fresh Strawberries & Kiwi

The Balanced Kitchen
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 20 mins
Servings 1


  • 1/2 cup quinoa rinsed
  • 1.5 cups coconut milk from a carton not a can
  • handful strawberries washed
  • 1/2 kiwi sliced


  • Cooked the quinoa in a pan with the coconut milk for around 15 mins on simmer, until you see the little 'tail' in the grain and the grain becomes translucent.
  • Transfer to a bow, allow to cool for a few mins.
  • Add the fruit topping - use the strawberries and kiwi or whatever you have to hand.
  • Add a little Maple syrup if you used water to cook the quinoa.


You can cook the quinoa in any nut milk or even just water but what you use will alter the taste.  Water will not give any extra taste, coconut milk will be sweeter.  Other nut milks will give their own tastes too so choose your favourite!
